What is in it?
How to use it?
When applied to the skin, Argan Oil acts like a barrier to keep moisture from evaporating out of your skin. So it’s best to apply it on either slightly damp skin—to trap all that water in your pores—or massage it on over your moisturizer (to lock in all of the hydrating ingredients).
It absorbs quickly, so you’ll be left with a subtle, glowing skin, rather than a greasy look. If you’re not a fan of dewy look during the day, though, try using it after washing your face at night, instead.
