Real, organic and natural Argan oil can only be found in Morocco. It has become one of the most popular oils in the cosmetic and beauty industry. This has been helped with a recent rise of the use of natural and organic products for beauty treatments.
Home remedies are great ways to experiment with essential oils and natural, organic products for beauty treatments. Argan oil is an effective oil to help moisture the skin and clear the skin of spots and acne. Although it is effective on its own, Argan oil can also be mixed with other essential oils and natural products. This will allow you to create great home remedies to help the skin and can be used as a daily moisturizer.
The great thing about home remedies is that it all down to you regarding what you add to your remedy. It is completely down to you and what you like to what you add to your home remedy. This means you can add your favorite oils, fragrances, and ingredients to create the best moisturizer for everyday use.
Everyday moisturizers should always be applied to clean faces. Moisturising dirty skin will seal the dirt and sweat into the pores of the skin which is never good. The best time to apply a moisturizer is straight after a shower or just before bed (once you have washed your face).
Create Your Own
Creating your own everyday moisturizer with Argan oil could not be easier. Argan oil will be the base oil, also known as the carrier oil which is the main ingredient of the moisturizer. Argan oil works very well as a base oil because of its strong nourishing and healing power whilst being light and its ability to absorb into the skin quickly. The Argan oil will be 2/3 of your moisturizer home remedy and will be mixed with an essential oil of your choice and nourishing oil if you’re feeling adventurous.
Nourishing oils are known as bonus oils as they aren’t used as often as essential oils but offer fabulous benefits. You could add a wide range of oils to your Argan oil mixture including Tamanu oil, Sea Buckthorn oil, Carrot Seed oil, Emu oil or Borage oil.
The final ‘essential’ part of your moisturizing home remedy involves mixing in your favorite essential oil. Essential oils have amazing benefits for the skin and very strong so you only need to add a few drops to your mixture. There are so many essential oils that all offer excellent benefits so this might be a tough decision. However, you can always make a number of moisturizer with different essential oils added to Argan oil to see which remedy works best for your skin.
Essential oils to choose from including Lavender used for healing the skin, peppermint works well for oily and acne skin. Rose is very beneficial for aging skin as well as drying and normal skin to nourish the skin.
