Argan oil, referred to as 'liquid gold', can become your beauty elixir from head-to-toe. Its use in beauty care includes moisturisation, skin softening and providing sun protection to your face and hair. But what is argan oil.

This beauty oil is extracted from the nuts of an Argan tree, which grows exclusively in Southwestern Morocco. Producing argan oil is a tedious process taking one woman almost three days to extract only one liter of oil. That is why argan oil is so valuable.

Here are some tips to use argan oil in your beauty regimen:


Massage a few drops of argan oil on your face and neck after cleansing in the morning before sleeping at night. Argan is considered to be a dry oil and absorbs onto the skin. It's non-greasy. You can also use it as a serum. For this massage a few drops of this oil on your face and neck before apply the night cream. Wait till the oil gets absorbed into the skin.

Before applying your toner add a few drops of argan oil into it. This will help to tone and hydrate the skin simultaneously.

Skin brightening face mask

Face glow

Adding a drop or two of argan oil to your makeup will give a luminous glow to your appearance. You can add it to your foundation or bronzer or even on your tinted moisturizer for that dewy look.

Lip care

Enhance the appeal of your lips by using argan oil. Make a lips scrub using a few drops of argan oil, vanilla extract and fine brown sugar. Mix well and gently massage the paste on your lips. Wash off with water. This will moisturise and give softness to your lips.

Body oil

Argan oil can also be used as a body oil. Massage it directly onto your skin like a body lotion or add a few drops directly into the bath.

Regular use of argan oil on your hair makes your tresses soft and luminous. Massage a generous amount of argan oil on your hair and scalp. Leave it overnight. Wash it off with shampoo in the morning.
