When I first heard about argan oil, I thought to myself: “Yeap, right, another miracle ingredient” and was very skeptical about it. However, I decided to give it a try and used this new oil every evening for about a month. I have to say it worked for me. The aspect of my skin improved, it looked more bright and soft.
I don’t have many wrinkles but they weren’t as visible as before so I concluded that this precious argan oil is effective and I continued to use it. There are multiple ways to include it in your daily routine: you may either add a few drops to the usual face cream or use it alone or even create an anti-aging serum such as the one below which includes many natural ingredients extremely beneficial for the skin.
To prepare it, I have added some prickly pear seed oil which also comes from Morocco just like its more famous brother, argan. The skin absorbs it real fast and has a deep nourishing effect. It brings back the elasticity of the epidermis and is a great contributor to the anti-aging process.
Another ingredient, which you probably already know by now, is coconut oil. I believe that at least 70% of the homemade cosmetics recipes include it. And this is because it really has a lot of benefits for the skin and hair.
To make the serum smell nice so I’ll use it with pleasure, I added some Geranium essential oil (also good for fighting against skin imperfections such as acne or dermatitis). And the last ingredient is Vitamin E oil, a great nutrient for skin.
This recipe is very easy to prepare and it is ready in about five minutes.
