Ingredient - Argan Oil

Argan Oil

Your Exotic Antioxidant Boost  Moisturising dry and sensitive skin can be problematic. With so many products on the market that contain irritating synthetic ingredients, it can be hard to find one that suits your delicate skin type. Argan oil is one of nature’s most moisturising and versatile oils that has been used on skin and hair for centuries.

What are the benefits of Argan Oil for the skin?


1. For a youthful, glowing boost

Add a drop of a facial oil like an argan oil to your foundation, NIVEA tinted moisturiser, BB or CC cream for a youthful, dewy boost to your complexion.


2. As a moisturising lip exfoliator

For a simple and natural homemade lip exfoliator, combine a few drops of argan oil with a drop of vanilla extract and a teaspoon of brown sugar. Gently massage the mixture into your lips using a circular motion and rinse off. Your lips will be left free of dry skin and the argan oil will lock in moisture to keep your pout plump.


3. As a natural softener for your hands and feet

Massage a product containing argan oil, like NIVEA’s Hand Creams, into your cuticles in the morning and the night to help soften and moisturise. Massage a generous pump of argan oil into your heels and toes before bed, then cover with socks, to nourish and hydrated dry feet.


What else is Argan Oil good for?

The oil has long been highly valued by Moroccan women for its cosmetic properties for hundreds of years. They use it not only to prepare meals, but in body and hair care too. More than 80% of argan oil consists of unsaturated fatty acids, including Omega-9 and Omega-6, and contains three times the amount of vitamin E as olive oil. This nutrient-rich, antioxidant nut helps to care for the skin and hair to keep it moisturised, smooth and protected.

There is nothing like it! Here are some tips for integrating argan oil into your daily beauty routine.

Enjoy a relaxing argan oil massage

Thanks to its mild, non-greasy texture, argan oil is one of the best oils to massage with. Its caring properties aids skin repair as it softens and hydrates. So dim the lights, light a candle and indulge in a massage – your skin will thank you!

Try a hydrating argan oil hair mask

A leave-in hair mask can be just what damaged hair needs. Simply massage the oil into your hair and scalp, before wrapping it in a towel. Leave in for a few hours or overnight to give the oil a chance to work its magic. Then rinse out, shampoo your locks and enjoy softer, sleeker hair.

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
