Pure argan oil can be used to relieve a number of skin issues including dryness, acne, psoriasis, eczema, wrinkles, inflammation, and excessive oil production. While argan oil is effective at alleviating such skin conditions, I also tend to use Beta Naturals 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil Moisturizer as a way to help prevent skin problems from occurring. Here's a simple breakdown of my daily skin care routine using argan oil:
When it comes to skin care, starting my day off on the right foot is very important. If I leave the house with my face feeling dry or irritated, chances are that I will feel self-conscious or grumpy throughout the day. Immediately after shaving I usually apply a few drops of argan oil on my face to soothe any razor burn or irritation resulting from the shave. I prefer using argan oil over traditional store-bought post-shave products as many of the mass-market aftershave balms and splashes tend to contain synthetic ingredients and fragrances that can aggravate sensitive or problem skin. Ladies, you can apply the same approach after shaving your legs, underarms, and other areas.
Now that you've conquered the day with confidence (thanks to your newly-nourished, revitalized skin), be sure to moisturize in the evening before going to bed. After using a mild liquid face wash (preferably made with natural ingredients), I typically apply a few drops of argan oil on my face to properly nourish the skin while I sleep. Don't forget about the eyes - the skin around the eyes does not produce enough oil on its own to keep the area firm and youthful. Gently apply 2-3 drops of argan oil to the area around your eyes (eyelids, under the eyes, crows feet, etc.). Spread the oil by lightly tapping around the eyes with your fingertips. Whatever you do, avoid rubbing your eyes as the skin around them is fragile. Rubbing your eyes can contribute to the forming of bags and wrinkles.
Repeat this routine daily and you should notice an improvement in how your skin looks and feels over time.
Note: if you already have a moisturizer/after shave balm that you love, optimize its performance by adding and mixing in 10 drops of argan oil.
If you have additional ways to implement Beta Naturals 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil into your daily skin care routine, please share them with us. We'd love to hear from you!
