When you think of argan oil, an image of super shiny, bouncy hair probably comes to mind. But in the beauty world, the super ingredient is a staple in many skincare products too because of its unparalleled ability to nourish, hydrate, and moisturize.
“Argan oil is rich in fatty acids and Vitamin E, which makes it a great natural emollient and skin hydrator,” says dermatologist Dr. Elizabeth Hale, M.D. “Just a few drops give the skin gives the skin a dewy look.” It’s also a natural antioxidant that helps protect skin from environmental stressors.
