How to treat acne with Argan Oil

Posted by Hakim Seffar on

Argan oil effectively fights acne through a triple action. It balances the hydrolipidic film of the epidermis, lets the skin breathe and helps regenerate skin cells. To better understand this phenomenon, let's examine how acne is triggered and what is the appropriate care.

Acne is usually linked to an imbalance of the hormonal system that leads to overproduction of sebum. Frequent in teenagers and affecting to a lesser extent the female population, acne can be aggravated by the application of cosmetics called "comedogenic" that clog the pores of the skin. The use of soaps too pickling will also be detrimental to the maintenance of an optimal hydro-lipid balance on the surface of the skin which, in reaction, will then tend to increase its production of sebum.

Argan Oil is recommended for acne-prone skin

Argan oil is not comedogenic. Applied on clean skin, it restores the hydrolipidic film of the epidermis while letting the dermis breathe. Argan oil then contributes to a good regulation of sebum production.

The application of argan oil must, however, be done via delicate massages to avoid the overproduction of sebum related to the stimuli of the sebaceous glands, very sensitive to the friction of which they can be the object.

Argan oil helps regenerate skin cells by revitalizing cellular functions. This is how it works effectively on acne scars.

In order to be most effective, it must be applied before going to bed as a night mask.

You should use pure argan oil and preferably certified organic.

Here are some application tips:

  • Perform one or more circular massages on the face with the oil. Without rinsing, allow it to penetrate overnight.
  • In the morning, wash your face as usual.
  • For an optimal effect, make a gentle peel before applying your argan oil. If you do not want to sleep with argan oil on your face, you can also add a few drops of oil in your day or night cream.
