Argan Oil For Anti
Test Drive: Each week, the Huffington Post Canadas Living team will try out something that has sparked our curiosity, and as long as we live to tell the tale, well let you know all about it.
Me, a fearless HuffPost manager, lover of trends and lazy beauty junkie. I love product but wear very little makeup, often neglect the expensive potions I buy, and cant be bothered with a threestep skincare regimen toner, what?. Alas, my dryyetbreakoutprone skin has probably suffered for it. As a woman in her later thirties whos starting to think about a her fine lines and b the synthetics shes putting on her skin, I wanted an agepreventing something or other that I could dab on when halfasleep and be done with it.
I decided to give argan oil a whirl. Long touted by celebrities like Josie Maran who has her own argan oil skincare line and natural skincare shopping sites as a miracle antiaging product, argan oil is a vegetable oil made primarily in Morocco by cooperatives of women. The labourintensive process involves expressing the oil from the nut in the argan fruit. The oil is supposedly rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, and started emerging as a skincare trend a couple years back its in the popular Moroccanoil hair products but like I said, Im lazy. And bigger brands like Marans are often pricey and also like I said, I tend not to use the expensive treatments I buy. It left my skin feeling ridiculously soft, and didnt cause breakouts like I feared it would, but that may be because I use another moisturizer with glycolic acid to help keep my skin clear. But it left my skin dewy, plumped up and kind of glowing, and was a good companion to my other moisturizer NeoStrata, which I cant recommend enough.
But in terms of antiaging properties, I havent seen any wrinkles erased as far as I can tell. Theyre not any worse, but they havent disappeared. So while there could be some preventive properties to argan oil, there was no reversal happening although maybe you need longer than four months for any significant results. Or maybe my other products were interfering. Or maybe I shouldnt have partied my way through my twenties. Who can say, really?
Oh, and it made my hair a little stringy when I used too much on the ends.
Nevertheless, Im sold and will keep using argan oil. Its cheap, simple and natural, a super moisturizer and skin softener, and its not making my wrinkles or my breakouts any worse. And I like that it helps collectives of women earn legitimate wages independently. For all that, I can put up with the name Divine Essence.
