If you’re new around here, you may not know about our obsession with organic argan oil, especially using organic argan oil for face! This oil has a ton of different uses for hair, skin, and nails, but a little known use is how it can work with your makeup routine to give you glowing skin.
Just as a quick primer: argan oil is extracted from the nut inside the argan fruit of (you guessed it!) an argan tree. The plant is endemic to Morocco, and the oil is used for everything from cooking to cosmetics.
Especially in the winter when the air and your skin tend to be drier, you need a good moisturizer to keep that skin looking dewy and fresh! Enter: organic argan oil.
If you’ve read our previous posts on argan oil, you’ll know that when you use it, a little bit goes a long way! This is especially true when you’re putting it on your face. (PS- try this one if you’re not sure where to start!)
When you’re using organic argan oil on your face, there are a couple of ways to try it! These are our top tips.
How to Use Organic Argan Oil for Face
- On a freshly-cleaned face, put just a drop or two (This depends on your complexion- for drier skin, use two drops. For oilier or combination skin, just use one.) in the palm of your hand and rub your hands together to warm up the oil. Then spread it over your face! It’ll be in a thin layer, but you’ll definitely feel the difference, especially if you have dry skin.
- Another way is to apply the argan oil AFTER you’ve already applied for makeup. So put on your makeup like normal, then put a drop or two in your hand and rub hands together to warm it up. Then, only apply it to the apples of your cheeks, the center of your forehead, the bridge of your nose, and your chin. The argan oil will have a luminizing effect, which is perfect for brightening up skin for a fresh, dewy complexion.
