Does argan oil have UV protection?

February 01, 2018

Does-argan-oil-have-UV-protection

Yes. Argan oil is extremely rich in vitamin E, which has proven to defend skin, hair, nails, and lips against damaging ultraviolet rays. Unlike many commercial sunscreens, argan oil UV protection is completely free of toxic chemicals that do more harm than good. Additionally, argan oil for face and hair is full of restorative essential fatty acids. Beyond offering defense against UV radiation, these acids calm and heal irritated skin while offering anti-aging benefits.

Application Is Key

In order to get maximum argan oil sun protection, it is important to apply the serum before going outside. Simply add two or three drops onto your fingertips and rub into skin. The oil works best on clean, dry skin, so be sure to use your favorite cleanser prior to application. In fact, the effects of argan oil for sun protection can be enhanced with our Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Argan oil absorbs quickly, so you don’t have to wait long before heading out confidently into the sunshine.

Enjoy a More Youthful Appearance

Exposure to ultraviolet radiation has not only been linked to an increased risk of skin cancer, but also an acceleration of the aging process. Over time, skin deteriorates from sun kissed to dry, dull, saggy, and wrinkled. As skin loses its elasticity, an indicator of aging, aesthetic concerns only get worse and more pronounced. Argan oil is your secret weapon in treating not only these unpleasant effects, but also the root cause. Whether or not you spend time in the sun, you can preserve your skin’s elasticity and youthful glow with this powerful, moisturizing oil. 

 
Is Argan Oil Good for All Skin Types?

Yes, argan oil is good for all skin types. In fact, it provides a unique benefit for each skin type.

  • Dry Skin: Argan oil balances the skin's production of sebum, which reduces the flakiness and itching related to dry skin in addition to helping it retain moisture.
  • Oily Skin: Just like it balances production for people with dry skin, argan oil helps to reduce the production of sebum. For the best results when using argan oil for oily skin, avoid clarifying cleansers that cause your skin to produce more oil.
  • Combination Skin: People who have patches of oily and dry skin at the same time have combination skin. Since argan oil helps both issues, it's an excellent choice for those who have combination skin.
  • Sensitive Skin: Argan oil is natural and organic, making it safe to use for almost everyone who has sensitive skin. It may even help to clear up eczema, rosacea or other skin conditions. People with sensitive skin should test the product on a small patch first to ensure no negative reactions.

How Should I Store Argan Oil?

When stored properly, argan oil can last up to two years. To get the most out of your product, keep the bottle in a cool, dry place. Avoid direct light, extreme temperatures and that have a lot of humidity, such as next to the bathroom sink. 

What Are Other Benefits of Argan Oil for the Skin?

Argan oil offers several advantages in addition to acting as a natural moisturizer and anti-aging treatment. When mixed with your toner, it helps to offset the astringents that can cause harsh effects on the skin. It is also safer to use around the eyes than many traditional eye creams are; you can even massage it into your eyelashes with a clean mascara wand to condition them. Other benefits include treating acne, conditioning the lips and soothing the skin after using a facial hair remover or shaving.
