Uses in skincare
Argan oil is used on the skin and on hair as well. Unlike other oils, argan oil is made up of smaller molecules that get absorbed easily and quickly into the skin. It is, therefore, less likely to cause breakouts or clog pores. It is used as a hand and feet softener as well as a moisturizer when applied to hair. If you want to use it as an exfoliator and moisturizer for dry lips, combine some argan oil with a small amount of brown sugar and work it into the lips then rinse off. To use it for your hair, pour a few drops of argan oil on your palm and rub it between both palms. Brush your fingers through clean hair just after a shower (the hair should be damp, not wet) and massage the remaining oil into your scalp. For the face, rub a few drops or the oil on your palms and massage it into your face after having cleaned it well. The oil will be absorbed into the skin almost immediately.
These are few among the numerous advantages of using argan oil for healthy natural skincare.

The next time you are looking for an oil to use on both your face and hair, think argan oil.
Are there any side effects involved?
Just because Moroccan women use or used the oil to cook does not mean it is to be eaten directly. Oral ingestion of argan oil may lead to stomach discomfort that may or may not result in diarrhea, nausea, bloating or loss of appetite. People who are allergic to tree nuts might experience some discomfort while using argan oil. However, it is important to note that unlike other oils, argan oil is generally safe to use.
