Argan Oil for Health & Beauty

Argan oil is used in two mediums; cooking and cosmetics. It’s a wonderful oil for the face, skin and hair. It’s rich in vitamin E and contains carotene. Vitamin E has antioxidant properties, which works to prevent damage to the body’s cells and protect against diseases. Carotene is what gives carrots and sweet potatoes their orange color. Argan oil is extracted from the kernals of the argan tree found in Morocco. With claims to moisturize, soothe and nourish, it’s no wonder more and more cosmetics contain argan oil.

I understand the mind and feelings of teens with acne and acne scarring, because I was once there. As an adult, I ventured off to plastic surgeons, dermatologists and aestheticians—paying heavy prices to obtain perfect skin. Oh yeah, my skin still isn’t perfect! I can’t tell you all the products I’ve ordered over the years. What a waste. But I do know the weight and toll ‘imperfect’ skin plays on the hearts and minds of teens and adults—especially females. The wicked world of negative self-image!

Does all the cosmetic surgery (I’ve never had any done, btw…) actually heal hearts and minds, and solve self-image and bullying problems? Weigh in on it. Check out this infographic and tell us what you think.
