What Are the Beauty Benefits of Argan Oil for Your Face?

Argan Oil, also widely known as "Liquid Gold", became a global beauty phenomena in the early 2000`s. This is when the western beauty industry revealed the ancient anti-aging secret of Moroccan women.

A Quick Overview of Argan Oil

Argan Oil is a cold-pressed plant oil made from the kernel of the Argan nut, native to a region in Morocco. It is mostly used as a cosmetic tool for centuries for its numerous beauty and health benefits. In the cosmetic industry the oil is usually applied topically directly on the skin or it is infused in all kinds of products - face creams, serums, hair products or even makeup.

It is globally worshiped because of its quick, natural and visible results for beautifying and regenerating the skin. Argan Oil contains a high concentration of Vitamin E, fatty acids, squalene, polyphenols and carotenoids, which help the skin look amazing. 

What Are the Benefits of Argan Oil for Your Skin

Deeply Moisturizes the Skin

Argan Oil is one of the best skin moisturizing ingredients you can use to achieve deep hydration and plumpness. It is especially helpful with dry skin, as it quickly replenishes any dry areas; whereas for oily skin, it works as a very lightweight and balancing moisturizer. You can easily swap your regular moisturizer for Argan Oil - its hydrating properties penetrate deeply into the skin, leaving it well-moisturized and refreshed.

Has Amazing Anti-Aging Effect

The anti-aging game of Argan Oil is a big one. The oil is packed with natural anti-aging ingredients like vitamin E and omega 3,6,9 fatty acids which work as powerful antioxidants. The regular use of Argan Oil can massively improve the appearance of fine lines, fill in deep wrinkles and lift the face contour. The oil restores the skin's elasticity, prevents the sagging of the skin and the formation of aging signs. Just look at the faces of native women from Morocco and you`ll be convinced of its abilities to stop the clock.

Treats Acne

Among the moisturizing and anti-aging properties, Argan Oil is also known for its anti-inflammatory benefits. It contains linoleic and oleic acid which help soothe any skin irritations. Argan Oil is non-comedogenic and can be used for oily and acne-prone skin. It heals effectively pimples and fades any acne scars left.

Balances the Skin

Argan Oil is placed in the middle of the oil spectrum and is considered a suitable oil for any skin type. It really covers a huge list of skin issues. If you have dry skin, Argan Oil will help you with moisturizing; if your skin is oily, it will reduce the production of sebum; if you have acne and damaged skin barrier - it will heal and regenerate the skin; if you already see signs of aging - it will smooth and bring the youthful look on your face; if it is sensitive - Argan Oil will calm any itchiness, redness or flare.

Protects from Sun Damage

The high concentration of polyphenols, fatty acids and vitamin E make the perfect cocktail that will treat and reverse any skin damage from your skin. Uneven tan, dark spots or burned areas are reversible with regular application of Argan Oil. We recommend you to use Argan Oil for prevention from sun damage, as the Vitamin E is very potent for fighting UV damage and free radicals.

Improves Skin`s Overall Condition

No matter if you have or don't have any skin irregularities and just want to maintain the condition of your skin, Argan Oil is perfect for this job. The oil strengthens the skin barrier, holds the moisture in the deep layers of the skin and maintains the skin healthy, smooth, glowing and young-looking.

How to Use Argan Oil on Your Face

Argan Oil is usually used topically on the skin in its pure form. You can use it as a moisturizer in the morning and evening, as a first or last step of your beauty routine. Apply a couple of drops of the oil on your face and gently massage your skin to full absorption.

If you would like an Argan Oil infused product, opt for a face serum or cream. Serums usually are the first step of the skincare routine and creams come after them. We offer Argan Oil infused face serums for different skin concerns. Just pat a couple of drops of serum all over your face and then apply argan oil cream for achieving the best skin results.

Can Argan Oil Irritate the Skin

There are little concerns regarding the irritating nature of Argan Oil. It is not a frequent occasion for Argan Oil to cause any severe irritating side effects on the skin.

People who have reported negative symptoms from the use of Argan Oil , have used the oil internally as a supplement, resulting in nausea, stomach issues and diarrhea.

Skin-irritating problems with Argan Oil can occur from overusing the oil. On rare occasions some individuals report that Argan Oil aggravates their acne or causes a rash. Also people with nut allergies may experience negative outcomes. To avoid this, perform a patch test on a small area of your skin to make sure that Argan Oil is good for your beauty routine.

How to Choose The Best Argan Oil

Argan Oil is made exclusively by hand by the native women in Morocco. It takes a lot of manual labor to produce the oil, so look for the high price! If you buy cheap Argan Oil it is probably not pure and it is mixed with a carrier oil, washing away the benefits of the Argan Oil.

Don`t buy Argan Oil that has any added perfume, scent or aroma to it. It is most likely to contain artificial chemicals, which can irritate the skin. The organic 100% pure Moroccan Argan Oil has a light, pleasant and natural nutty aroma.

Opt only for Argan Oil that is labeled as 100% pure and organic, ethically sourced from Morocco. We, at Essence of Argan, offer only the best Moroccan Argan Oil!


We assure you that if you start using pure Argan Oil or Argan Oil infused products, you`ll see a huge positive transformation in your skin! 

Argan Oil is one of the safest beauty oils that you can use on your face. Be sure to choose the right product for you - whether it's a pure Argan Oil, cream or serum. In only a month you can witness your skin problems fade away for good.
