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.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
