Argan oil gained popularity in 2016 because models like Josie Maran and Kim Kardashian fell in love with it’s skin-transforming powers. But even though it’s new to cosmetic store shelves here in America, it’s actually a traditional Moroccan beauty-staple that stands the test of time.
Pure argan oil hails from Morocco’s Argan Forest and is found inside the fruits of the slow-growing argan trees. It’s extracted from the argan fruit’s kernels and hand-pressed by local Berber women into the precious oil that gets distributed all over the world. Even still today, extracting the argan oil is performed with an ancient, laborious technique that’s usually done by hand and stone. This highly valuable oil is rich in essential antioxidants, omegas 6 & 9, tocopherol (vitamin E), vitamin A, linoleic acids, tocotrienol, phenolic compounds, and flavonoids. These nutrients work to repair the skin’s natural barrier function and reverse damage that’s been done over the years by harsh products, environmental toxins, and UV rays.
We’ve all heard about antioxidants and know that they’re good for us, but why are antioxidants so essential to youthful skin? There are a lot of factors that cause the skin to age at an accelerated rate, but one of the biggest contributors to “premature aging” is free radical activity in the body. Free radicals are molecules that are produced by environmental exposure to tobacco smoke, radiation, UV rays, air pollution, toxins and certain foods. Antioxidants exist naturally in the body as protection against these free radicals. But when the free radicals outnumber the antioxidants, it results in negative effects on skin health, like loss in elasticity, sagging, and wrinkles. By adding a rich source of antioxidants (like argan oil) to your daily skin regime, you can reverse the damage of free radicals and stay youthful-looking well into senior-hood.
It’s no wonder this nutrient-rich oil is called liquid gold. If you’re wondering whether you two might be a good match, here’s the top six argan oil treatments that come along with lathering up on the daily.
