Argan Oil for Acne

Argan oil is a plant oil that is produced from the kernals of the argan tree which can be found in Morocco. Argan oil is edible but it’s also known for it’s hydrating and healing properties which is why you will also see it in my hair and skin care products. It works wonderfully on dry skin, does not clog pores and helps to heal split ends.  These healing properties are why argan oil for acne is suddenly such a popular trend.

Argan oil also contains Vitamin E, otherwise known as tocopherols, which have an anti-oxidant effect. Anti-oxidants help remove damaged cells and encourage new cell growth which can help with acne scars. Argan oil also regulates the production of sebum which is one of the things that contributes to acne. Argan oil contains unsaturated fatty acids which can help make your skin feel softer.

Since argan oil is 100% natural, it is safe for even sensitive skin. Many people with sensitive skin are more prone to acne breakouts but harsh acne products can simply make the problem worse. To use agan oil:

  1. Cleanse your face with your normal cleanser.
  2. Warm the argan oil slightly so it is warm to the touch but definitely not hot.
  3. Place a few drops of argan oil in your palm and rub it gently into your skin in a soft, circular motion.
  4. Leave the argan oil on your skin for 2 to 3 minutes to allow the benefits to be absorbed.
  5. Continue with your normal skin care routine. You should not need an additional moisturizer after the argan oil.

Using argan oil in your skin care routine can provide many benefits. You can also use argan oil for your hair and your cuticles.

  1. I didn’t realize argan oil was such a great acne treatment! Thank you so much for sharing! 

  2. I have really never used essential oils. I find your descriptions so convincing though. It just seems to make sense that something natural would be better than a bunch of chemicals. 

  3. I love using natural products and I have not read that much about Argan Oil but it sounds like a great to use on my dry skin.  I will find some to try it out.

  4. I had no idea. I am going to get some of this for several of my kids. I like the idea of using “alternatives” to subscribed medications, whenever possible.

  5. I use it in my hair after I condition. It really does wonders for it. It has such a lovely shine. I never thought of it for a skin help. Thanks for alerting me to it’s other features.
