7.  Fight Acne and Acne Scars

If you suffer from acne, or if you have scars from a teenage bout with acne, Argan oil can help. The high linoleic acid in this oil reduces the redness of acne and its scars. The antioxidants in this oil also help to reduce inflammation. If you have acne currently, the best way to help get rid of it is to mix three or four drops of tea tree oil into one teaspoon of Argan oil. Rub this mixture on your clean face each day using a cotton ball. Allow it to work for 10 minutes, then simply rinse (don’t wash) with lukewarm water. Repeat this twice each day for best results.

 

8. No More Hangnails!

Hangnails are dry cuticles that split off from the regular cuticle. If you pull one of these or get it caught on something you know how painful these little pieces of skin can be! Stop hangnails by using Argan oil as a natural cuticle moisturizer. The vitamin E in this oil is super nourishing for the nails and cuticles. It helps to prevent fungal infections and moisturizes the cuticles so they don’t develop hangnails. Simply rub a drop of Argan oil into your cuticles once or twice each day and say bye-bye to hangnails forever!
