Argan oil 'is perfect for tackling winter skin problems'

Argan Oil for this Winter

Written by Laura Andrews, Skin Care and Holistic Lifestyle Expert


Tackle winter with argan oil

It's that time of year again when we have to try to protect our face and other areas of exposed skin against the combined horrors of central heating and biting winds, and here's where products like argan oil can come in handy and soothe dry patches of skin.


Argan oil comes from Morocco and is derived from the argan tree. It can be used to hydrate the skin and is known as 'liquid gold' for a good reason. A little drop of this wonder stuff goes a long way and provides deep nourishment for the face, hands, body and hair when we're feeling a bit under the weather.


Boost your skin this winter

Using this organic Moroccan oil results in skin looking healthy and revitalised, which is perfect for these miserable autumn days, and can even boost cell stimulation and regeneration.


Other plant oils are effective at promoting plump and hydrated-looking skin, such as rosehip oil, which could even help to reduce wrinkles. It absorbs very quickly into the skin and acts as an anti-ageing product, reducing the appearance of age spots and scars.


Individuals could also use almond oil to fight flaky, dry skin this season. Simply massage a dollop of the product into problem areas before going to bed and your skin will feel smooth and polished the next day.


The Daily Mail recommends nourishing your skin by rubbing in hydrating serums at night, which helps to stimulate the circulation and evens out skin tone. Using your fingers, gently pat your product of choice onto your face and massage it in small circles until the cream or oil is completely absorbed. Be particularly careful of the eye area because it is delicate and the skin there is thinner than on the rest of the face, so use very light touches to apply the product.
