Using argan oil to treat acne

Unless you are a Hollywood actress with a team of makeup artists at your disposal, acne is one of life’s little annoyances that many of us experience. For long-term acne sufferers, the search for an effective treatment can feel like an endless process of trial and error using ineffective, harsh or expensive treatments.

Unlike most commercial acne treatments, Authentic Argan Oil is a 100% natural product. Made from the fruits of the argan tree, its natural properties are all you need to heal and protect your skin from acne.

What causes acne

Our skin contains hair follicles which produce an oily substance called sebum, which lubricates our hair and skin. Acne occurs when these hair follicles become clogged with excess sebum and dead skin cells. These blockages allow bacteria to breed, causing infection and inflammation of the skin.

How argan oil treats and prevents acne

Argan oil is known to have several properties that make it effective in the battle against acne. The most important of these are:

- Argan oil is known to regulate the production of sebum, making it a deterrent to future acne outbreaks when used regularly;
- Argan oil has anti-inflammatory properties that reduce redness and swelling;
- Argan oil is known to aid skin exfoliation, further reducing the risk of further outbreaks.

It's not just good for preventative cases. Argan oil has been shown to help improve your skin and reduce the effect of scarring.

- Argan oil is high in Vitamin E and anti-oxidants which help remove dead skin cells and promote new cell growth, rejuvenating skin and reducing the appearance of acne scars.

How to use argan oil

Argan oil slides effortlessly into your skincare routine.
- Wash and exfoliate your skin.
- Take a few drop of Authentic Argan Oil in your hands. Use one finger to apply it on your skin by massaging in gentle circles until the oil is absorbed.
- Allow the oil to work its magic for a couple of minutes. If your skin still feels dry, massage some more in.
- Continue your routine as normal.

For best results, be sure to use cold pressed organic 100% pure argan oil.

Note: argan oil can be used to treat acne wherever it occurs on your body, including your back and chest.

Getting the best out of argan oil

As well as being an effective acne treatment, argan oil is a great all-round product for your skin. It's an excellent moisturiser, and is known to slow the skin’s ageing process.

Continued use will not only see acne kept at bay and scarring reduced, but argan oil will increase your skin's hydration, smoothness and suppleness.
