Argan oil ’is perfect for tackling winter skin problems’
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.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
