Want to know how you can incorporate Argan oil in your skincare regimen? Learn more about ways to use Argan oil to suit your skin type and requirement.
Argan Oil is gaining popularity worldwide, though not a new ingredient to skincare or hair care. Moroccan women have been using this oil for centuries, a reason why they have flawless skin and healthy hair.
Here, we have listed a few creative ways to use our Argan Oil with a twist, for flawless skin.
Dry skin needs extra moisture, nourishment, hydration and care. Skin is already dry and probably damaged. Besides, anything can trigger irritation or inflammation or bruises.
Combine Argan Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Carrot Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Lavender Essential Oil and Rosehip Seed Oil. You can choose the ratios according to your preference and requirement. Though all the oils listed are carrier oils, except Lavender Essential Oil, Carrot Seed Oil and Rosehip Oil are extremely nourishing and pricey.
You can keep Argan and Jojoba as your base oils, closely followed by Evening Primrose and treat Carrot Seed Oil and Rosehip Oil like essential oil (a few drops). Lavender Essential Oil is healing and suits all skin types, and one of the very few essential oils that can be applied directly. This combination is a great healing and nourishing combination, suitable for dry, damaged or blemished skin.
Combination skin is quite tricky as every skin type has different routines and requirements. With combination skin, you don’t fall under one particular skin category and that makes identifying the right skincare ingredients or routines, tricky!
Argan Oil, with a few drops of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil and Frankincense Essential Oil can do wonders to soothe and balance your confused skin! You can add a few drops of Geranium (stimulating oil for giving energy), if you are planning to use this during the day.
Add Jojoba Oil and Argan Oil in equal parts, with a few drops of Clary Sage Essential Oil, Roman Chamomile and Petitgrain (energizing) Essential Oil. You can apply this during the day, if you are planning to use it during the night, replace the Petitgrain Essential Oil with Rose. Skin’s oil level is balanced and issues due to excess sebum production are curbed.
Sensitive skin needs extra care and caution, since even the simplest ingredients can trigger irritation, itching or redness. It is a good idea to use gentle ingredients for best results.

Before applying oil for moisturizing or nourishing, make sure you cleanse your face with a mild face wash. Check the recipe here. Never apply these blends without washing off your face, however tired you are! Just skip the oil in that case, but don’t overlook cleansing!
The variations can be varied according to your preference or requirement. At the end of the day, we can only advice – you are the best person to decide what your skin wants!
