You might have noticed it by now, Moroccan Argan oil is our favourite natural skincare ingredient. We just LOVE how good it makes our skin look and feel. It gives amazing results and it so versatile. You just need to put a few drops daily as a moisturizer to get clear and glowing skin but you can also better your results if you use it as a face mask.
Applying a face mask is not only relaxing but it also offers deep cleansing and nourishment to your skin. There are many ways to make face masks with Argan oil. When combined with the right ingredients it can do wonders to your skin. We personally love to mix Argan oil with avocados, honey and lemon juice to enhance its properties.
If you are new to the party, here is a little recap of Argan oil’s benefits for your skin. The first reason you’ll want to include organic Argan oil, also known as Moroccan oil, in your beauty routine is that it’s one of the best natural moisturizers. It is rich in antioxidants, Vitamin E and A and fatty acids, which gives it the ability to deeply, but gently, hydrate your skin and protect it.
If you have been struggling with acne breakouts, then it will be your best ally. Rubbing pure Argan oil regularly on your skin treats acne, revitalizes your face and helps you get rid of acne scars too. In addition to that, this oil is popular for its anti-ageing and anti-wrinkle effects and sun protection properties. What we love the most is that it suits all skin types and it doesn’t clog the pores.
Avocados are high in monounsaturated fat antimicrobial properties, which help increase skin elasticity, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and prevent breakouts. It’s also a great source of biotin, omega-9 and Vitamins C and E and contains an abundance of antioxidants. Combined, these nutrients stimulate the production of collagen, moisturize and soothe the skin, protect from UV damages and help even out skin tone.
Honey has always been known for its incredible health benefits, and it is amazing for the skin too. It moisturizes the skin deeply, cleanses pores and removes blackheads. Honey also exfoliates the skin and removes dead cells without causing irritations, so it is beneficial for people with sensitive skin. It is an amazing treatment for sunburns and scars as well.
Lemon juice is a great source of Vitamin C. As an antioxidant, it is very effective in fighting free radicals, boost collagen production, brighten dark spots and even out the skin tone. Lemons are also rich in citric acid that can help treat blackheads and clear pores. However, lemon juice should be used in small quantities because it can cause skin irritations and redness.
All you need to make this powerful face mask is:
- 1 spoon of Lemon juice
- 2 spoons of Avocados
- 1 spoon of Honey
- One spoon of Organic Argan oil
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients. Apply it to your face, leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes, and then rinse it with lukewarm water. It is always better to clean your face before the application to allow your skin to absorb the nutrients. Using this mixture once a week is enough to keep your skin clear, healthy and young-looking.
