- 01. Provides intense moisturisation

- 05. Brightens the complexion
01. Provides intense moisturisation
Argan oil is packed with vitamin E and essential fatty acids. This makes it a complete blessing for anyone with dry, dehydrated and flaky skin. It seals moisture into your skin and keeps it feeling soft and supple for long hours. Since this oil is extremely lightweight, it gets absorbed into the skin like a dream. Hence, it’s wise to include an argan oil serum such as the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum in your skincare routine. This lightweight concentrate combines the power of a serum and oil to give you nourished and radiant looking skin.
02. Prevents breakouts
People with oily and acne-prone skin can immensely benefit by using argan oil-infused products as well. The linoleic acid found in argan oil helps control excess sebum production and heals dry, damaged and inflamed skin (which is touted to be one of the major causes of adult acne). This is a great reason to use an oil-based cleanser such as the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Rinse Off Cleansing Oil to get rid of stubborn makeup, dirt and impurities. The lightweight formula won’t clog pores and is extremely gentle on all skin types.
03. Protects against sun damage
Argan oil is a rich source of antioxidants, which is why it prevents your skin against various environmental aggressors, especially harsh UV rays. The Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Oil-in-Creme SPF 30 PA ++ is perfect for this job. The lightweight texture absorbs deep into the skin for instant nourishment, and the SPF 30 provides broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays.
04. Heals skin infections
Argan oil has been used for centuries to treat and provide relief from skin infections. This miracle oil is chock full of antibacterial and antifungal properties that help in healing skin infections pretty quickly and effectively.
05. Brightens the complexion
Filled with essential skin-loving nutrients and vitamins, the lightweight consistency of argan oil penetrates deep into your skin to moisturise and brighten your complexion. Therefore, using an argan oil-based eye cream such as the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Night Revival Eye Cream will refresh tired-looking eyes, reduce dark circles and give your eyes a brighter-looking appearance.
