When we talk about beauty oils, argan is definitely on top of our lists. It's one of the most well-known kinds out there, and for good reason.

Argan oil has a ton of benefits. It's not just for the hair, but for the body as well. It's ultra-moisturizing, and it has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that make it a great all-around oil.

Below, we list some of the benefits that this ~*miracle*~ oil provides:

  1. It works great as a hair conditioner.

    This miracle oil is rich in nutrients and vitamins like A, C, and E, antioxidants, and linoleic acid. This powerful combination will leave your strands softer, shinier, and more manageable.

  2. It's great as a hair oil.

    Using hair oil is ~essential~ for healthy hair because it can keep your hair shiny and frizz-free.

  3. It moisturizes the skin.

    Apart from hair care products, argan oil is also commonly found in lotions, moisturizers, and soaps. This is because of its abundance in vitamin E, a fat-soluble antioxidant that helps with the skin's water retention! Simply explained, it's a fantastic skin moisturizer.

  4. It can treat some skin conditions. 

    This miracle oil contains a large number of healing properties which include anti-bacterial and anti-inflammation. These help in reducing the symptoms of various skin conditions like psoriasis, rosacea, and atopic dermatitisEd note: If you have serious skin conditions, please consult your dermatologist before self-medicating with oils.

  5. It can heal acne.

    Acne is a result of your skin's oil production going on overdrive, and argan oil has anti-sebum effects that can regulate the amount of oil being produced. Ed note: If you have serious skin conditions, please consult your dermatologist before self-medicating with oils.

  6. It reduces the skin's oiliness.

    You may think this seems counterintuitive because um... fighting oil WITH oil? This actually works, though! Due to argan oil's sebum-reducing capabilities, it can help decrease the sheen and oiliness on your face.

  7. It is good for anti-aging.

    The combination of both topical and cosmetic argan oil led to a significant increase in the skin's elasticity. This is due to the oil's high linoleic acid content. Plus, it's also rich in vitamin E which aids in diminishing scarring, redness, and inflammation.
