From all the beauty ingredients, Argan Oil has always been my favorite. For years I’ve been using this Moroccan beauty secret ingredient in all of my beauty rituals from head to toe. You probably know that Argan oil is beneficial for skin, nails and hair, as it is rich in vitamin E and it is antioxidant, which helps protect and provide anti-agin effects. And this is exactly what I need, when I’m getting closer and closer to big 30!
Argan oil, also know as the ,,Liquid Gold” is one of the rarest oils in the world, as it only grows in specific areas in Morocco. The nut grows on Argan tree, known as the tree of life, that is extremely well adapted to dry environment and tought conditions. So when I visited Marrakech at the beginning of this year, I actually saw a Berber woman producing a cold pressed Argan Oil on the streets of Marrakech. What an interesting scenery!
I’ve been having problems with extremely dry skin for years now, and Argan oil based products seems to be the only thing that really help me hydrate my skin on a daily basis. I love Argan products, because Argan oil is rich source of vitamin A and E and it works as antioxidant, however it is not greasy and absorbs quickly. The texture is light and it is not heavy on my skin, yet my skin stays hydrated the whole day!
That is why I was thrilled about my collaborations with AFRODITA COSMETICS (that I have been a loyal fan for years already), as they have a wide range of products base on Argan oil.
Here are some that I use on a daily basis and that I even took with me back to their origin, to Morocco:
With aging my hands are more and more dry out. That is why I use Argan 2 in 1 luxury hand and nail cream to pamper my skin with Argan oil, shea butter and cocoa. All these three ingredients in combine make a light texture that makes sure that my overexposed skin stays hydrated and regenerated. I’ve also noticed that my nails are shinier and stronger.
Probably my favorite part of body care routine. I have always been using Afrodita shower gels, but this one is by far my favorite. Not only because the main ingredient is Argan oil, but because it makes my skin very soft and silky.
After applying shower gel, I always finish my body care routine with body milk, and Afrodita Mystic Argan Noutrising Body Milk is a perfect finish to my daily skin treatment. A mix of Argan and coconut oil make a light texture, yet creamy enough to hydrate and nourishes my skin.
I have been a fan of this product since it was released on the market. It is a treasure of vitamin A which benefit is to renews the skins hydro-lipid lawyer and keeps the elasticity of the skin. It is perfect for dry skin and it helps with acne.
Useful tip for hair mask:
Once a week, right before washing my hair, I always make home mask using Argan oil (I use few drops of 100% SPA massage oil), coconut oil and one spoon of indian Amla. I massage the mask into my scalp and leave it on for 15 minutes.
