8 Mind Blowing Ways To Use Argan Oil That Don’t Involve Your Hair
The popularity of Argan oil has seemed to have exploded almost overnight! Everywhere you go you see hair care products touting that they contain Argan oil.
It’s true that this cold pressed oil from the fruit of the Moroccan Argan tree has many benefits for your hair, but most people don’t know that you can also use this healthy oil for other purposes. There are two grades of Argan oil; cosmetic and culinary. If you plan to consume it, be certain that you are buying culinary Argan oil. The cosmetic type is only fine for your skin and hair.
Although there have not been reports of any problems with this super healing oil, you should always do a small test spot on the inside of your arm and wait 24 hours before going hog wild, especially if you have an allergy to nuts.
Keep reading; we are going to blow you away with all the things you can do with Argan oil that don’t involve your hair.
1. Protection from Environmental Damage
Argan oil is loaded with healthy antioxidants, which can really help protect your skin from the damage caused by UV radiation from the sun as well as other types of environmental toxins in the air. Although this oil is technically not a sunscreen, it does offer some protection from the sun. It also helps to stop wrinkles, age spots, and that leathery type of skin that makes you look older than you actually are.
2. No More Razor Burn or Bumps
Shaving is a drag, but sometimes it’s the only alternative. Don’t you hate those ugly bumps you sometimes get after shaving or, even worse, razor burn? You can put an end to both of these problems with Argan oil. This works well for both men and women! Gentleman, Argan oil will soothe and help to heal your skin after shaving and ladies, you will love the results you will get, especially around the bikini line. Simply warm a tablespoon or so of Argan oil and massage it into the affected area after shaving. Many people say that they even notice a decrease in the number of ingrown hairs they get after using Argan oil on a regular basis.
3. Lowers Cholesterol Levels
Most people have no idea that they can consume Argan oil. Be sure that you use culinary grade Argan oil and substitute it in place of unhealthy, GMO oils such as corn oil, canola oil, or soybean oil. Argan oil actually lowers cholesterol levels, which can help to lower your risk of heart disease or a heart attack. Argan oil contains two unique plant sterols, spinasterol and schottenol, which block the absorption of LDL (bad) cholesterol in the digestive tract. How easy is that?!
4. Improves Digestion
Adding culinary grade Argan oil to your food stimulates the concentration of pepsin in your digestive tract, which will improve digestion as foods are broken down more easily. Improved digestion means less hunger, more energy, improved weight loss, and an overall improved state of health. All of this simply by cooking with culinary grade Argan oil!
