How to Use Argan Oil
Our Number 1 Tip - Use only cosmetic grade Pure Virgin Argan Oil and not culinary oil. During culinary oil production the Argan nuts are roasted to bring out a distinctive nutty flavour.
Nuts that are unroasted like Pure Argan Oil’s; i.e. those which are used for cosmetic oil – maintain a high concentration of vitamins and essential fatty acids which would otherwise be lost.
When using Argan Oil for the first time, begin by applying the oil only at night. When your skin begins to feel the benefits of Argan Oil you can then progress to moisturising with it twice daily, should your skin require extra hydration.
Protect Your Skin This Winter By Using Pure Argan Oil on your Face
Apply a small amount of Argan Oil (one or two drops) to your face massaging gently into your skin. Let the light oil penetrate deep into your skin then allow to air dry.
Remember a little goes a long way when using 100% Pure Argan Oil, so you only need one or two drops for your entire face. Argan oil is incredibly light and penetrates the skin easily, leaving it feeling silky and smooth.
Argan Oil has many uses and can even eliminate chapped lips, smear a small amount onto the lips then purse together as you would when applying lipstick.
This oil is ideal after any sun exposure; however, it is important to note that you do not apply Argan Oil before or during sunbathing.
Daily Skincare Routine
A good daily skincare routine is essential for healthy, glowing skin. There are three essential steps everyone should take to maintain good skin.
Cleanse – cleanse face, neck and décolletage, first thing in the morning and before bedtime to remove dirt, excess oil and grime. This aids the cell renewal process, an important factor in reducing wrinkles and combating the causes of ageing.
Exfoliate – Most people tend to forget to exfoliate and this can lead to aged and wrinkled skin. There are many methods to exfoliate; micro dermabrasion, retinoids and facial peels. These can remove the top layer of dead skin that tends to dull your complexion. A more gentle form of exfoliation is to use a few drops of Argan oil, emulsify with water, massage face using a muslin cloth then rinse well with clean water, finally pat your face dry with a soft, clean towel. We recommend that you exfoliate at least once per week.
Moisturise – Use Pure Argan oil to moisturise your skin before bedtime. Even if your skin is naturally oily you will feel the benefits of using a good moisturiser like Argan Oil. How often should I moisturise? Your skin will let you know. Apply morning and at bedtime for dry skin. Use sparingly on oily skin to ensure that you do not clog the pores.
Massage Argan Oil gently into the skin following a bath or shower. This is perfect for preventing stretch marks as this oil is light and easily absorbed.
Argan Oil helps to protect the elasticity and beauty of your skin helping you combat the tell-tale signs of ageing.

Argan Oil for Hair
To use Argan oil as a hair conditioner rub a small amount of oil into the palm of your hands then into the hair starting at the ends. If you suffer from a dry scalp and dandruff, massage Argan oil into the roots too.
For dry hair, leave the oil for more than half an hour and if your hair is very dry leave it overnight; finally wash the Argan oil out with a gentle shampoo.
Repeat these steps once or twice per week for silky, smooth, glossy, irresistible hair.
Hand and Nails
Rub a small amount of Argan Oil into your hands and cuticles especially before bedtime. This will strengthen weak or brittle nails and help keep your hands supple and youthful.
Massage a small amount of Argan Oil onto clean skin, use a clean blade and shave the required area, rinse well with tepid water then dry with a soft clean towel, finally massage a small amount of oil onto the newly shaved area and allow to air dry.
