6 Argan Oil Recipes That Make You Look and Feel Better
A Moroccan beauty staple since the 13th Century, argan oil is now a top shelf mainstay in the 21st. This golden oil works wonders on your face, body, hair, and nails! And when combined with other super-ingredients, argan’s transformative powers go from too-good-to-be-true to downright miraculous.
Take the Pure Argan Oil by Be Organic, for instance. Using this oil, you can make your own lip scrub, nail-strengthening solution, hot oil treatment, and more—all without breaking the bank. Try the 6 argan oil recipes below and see for yourself!
To get the most skin-benefits for your buck, add 1 to 3 drops of argan oil to your favorite all-natural toner. (Witch hazel or rosewater will do!) Then, simply apply this solution as you would a regular toner. The argan oil will create a silkier consistency, boost hydration, and alleviate redness.
Combine 3 drops of argan oil, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 3 tablespoons of Greek yogurt, and a little honey. Whisk these ingredients together until you get a smooth consistency. Apply the mixture over your entire face and let it sit for 4 to 5 minutes before rinsing. Thanks to the anti-inflammatory and moisturizing benefits of this recipe, expect relief from breakouts and more radiant skin.
Skip the salon fees for this DIY hair mask! All you need is 3 to 5 tablespoons of argan oil and a few drops of essential oil. Pour everything into a heat-safe container, then microwave for 10 seconds. Apply it to your strands and leave it on for 20 to 30 minutes. Once you rinse the mask off, you’ll have commercial-worthy, smooth ‘n’ shiny hair!
For an extra dose of hydration, add a few drops of argan oil to your regular moisturizer or body lotion. Smooth this over your face or body immediately after you shower. Besides softening your skin, the oil’s regenerative powers will help reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
Chapped lips ruining your smooch game? Make your own lip scrub by mixing equal parts VCO and sugar with a few drops of argan oil. Massage this over your lips, then gently rinse off with water. As the oil relieves dryness, the sugar granules slough off flaky skin. Et voilà, you’re back to kissable!
Too many mani-pedis can lead to brittle nails, but it’s nothing argan oil and lemon juice can’t fix! Combine equal parts of both in a small bowl. Soak your fingers in this solution for 15 minutes. The oil will restore moisture to dry cuticles, while the Vitamin C in the lemon will strengthen fragile nails.
