Argan oil is produced from the kernels of the argan tree which grows only in southwestern Morocco where it has been used by the women there for centuries. It is valued for its nutritive, cosmetic and medicinal properties and holds anti-aging benefits

One reason it’s specifically good for acne is that it is a non-comedogenic oil, similar in that sense to jojoba oil. When you add oil to your skin, it slows down your skin’s natural production of sebum, the oil which fills clogged pores and causes acne. Since your skin is producing less sebum on it’s own, you get less acne. Also, since argan oil is non-comedogenic it is not going to clog your pores.
Argan oil is packed with antioxidants and essential fatty acids, making it a valuable ingredient in diminishing signs of aging. While it is very emollient, argan oil is quickly absorbed by the skin and leaves behind no greasy residue, but can be too heavy for those with thinner skin and small pores. Oily skin types and those prone to acne seem to benefit most by this oil. Check www. arganoilacne.net for more information about this magical oil.
A big problem with so many other anti-acne products, is that if you used too many of them on your skin, they will dry it out excessively. In turn, your body will start producing excess oils to compensate. Because so many acne products tend to dry out your complexion, it is advisable to hydrate your skin completely after using them. A gel-structured moisturizer will work very well in case you have over-dried your skin already and of course you can always consider a lotion or cream (again, not oil-based). Do not forget to hydrate your complexions before applying any anti-acne product. For example, while the ingredient in Neosporin assist to dry out the pimple and makes it disappear quickly, you can apply calamine moisturizer to get your skin back to an normal moisture level.
Argan oil can be applied ideally with a 100 % cotton swab. Then, rub it into the face gently. Maintain this on for as much as 45 seconds and then wash it out. View other articles on our site to find the best brands of argan oil to use for your daily acne treatment.
Argan oil is light, moisturizing and effective at fighting signs of aging and sun damage when used as a moisturizer or treatment. It can also be used to soften cuticles and as a hot oil treatment for hair.
I would recommend argan oil for anyone with mild acne. It should help slow down your skin’s natural sebum production and reduce the occurrence of pimples.
