Choose argan oil for improved skin, hair and nails this autumn
Written by Laura Andrews, Skin Care and Holistic Lifestyle Expert
Individuals who are feeling a little sluggish now that the run of good weather has come to an end could perk themselves up with some pampering.
Natural beauty products could be the ideal present to yourself this autumn, as they are designed to make you feel better inside and make you look better on the outside.
What is argan oil used for?
Indulge your skin and hair with argan oil, which has multiple uses both as a body moisturiser and as an organic conditioner to rescue your locks from the terrors of wind, rain and central heating.
Argan oil is produced from the kernels of the argan tree, which is native to the Argan forest of south-west Morocco. For centuries the oil has been used in cooking and for cosmetic purposes, as it is rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, which can improve tired, dry skin, rejuvenate healthy cells and promote skin elasticity.
People who suffer with skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis can this organic oil too because it chemical-free and completely natural.
The oil can also be used by expectant mums to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars, and some say it can help protect skin against sun damage caused by UV exposure.
Essential solution for the winter months
As we head into autumn and the cold weather starts to bite, argan oil could be slathered on wet hair for really deep conditioning, which will negate the drying effects of central heating in homes and those blasts of hot air in offices and shops.
It could also be dabbed on to cuticles to help strengthen nails, as often women find their fingernails split and soften in the winter. Chapped hands might be soothed by a daily massage with the oil.
Finally, you can use argan oil as a barrier between your skin and the harsh environment, so smoothing a layer of oil onto your face before putting on your make-up may protect the skin against the pollutants in the air around us.

Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing.
