Argan oil might just be the new addition to my skincare routine

So far I had used argan oil for my hair, and for some reason, I hadn't included it in my skincare routine, but after finding out about its benefits, I might just well make argan oil my new addition. 

Every face oil has its benefits, texture, absorption rate, and weight, and this is why you should take these factors into account when choosing a formula that meets your skin needs. If you have acne-prone skin, castor oil and grape-seed oil, are great to reduce excess sebum, and coconut oil and avocado oil are perfect for patchy or dry skin.

What can argan oil do for your skin? 

Argan oil is the type of oil that works well with all skin types. It is rich in vitamin E, omega fatty acids, and linoleic acids – all of which have antioxidant and moisturizing properties for your skin.
Also, even though it might sound counterproductive, using argan oil for acne-prone skin can help strengthen your skin barrier. When you treat acne with harsh ingredients, such as the ones used for acne, the skin becomes dry and patchy, thus it tends to overcompensate by producing more oil and clogging the pores. Argan oil is great to repair the skin barrier and stop the cycle. 

Argan oil has anti-inflammatory properties that can soothe irritated skin, and eczema and actually fade scars

How to use argan oil for your skin

 It is a good idea to apply argan oil to damp skin or after you've applied your regular lotion.

Oils are occlusives, they are not moisturizers, this means that they act as a layer that keeps moisture from escaping from your skin. So, when using a facial or body oil, it is a good idea to apply it to damp skin or after you've applied your regular lotion, this way, you'll be locking in all the water and nutrients in your skin.
