Argan oil isn’t called liquid gold for nothing. It promises better skin, thanks to its amazing moisturising and nourishing properties. It’s seriously magical, especially if you have oily and acne-prone skin. Sounds contradictory? Read on to find out why argan oil is a god-sent saviour for anyone with oily skin and active acne...
Has moisturising properties
All skin oils differ from each other in terms of its formulation, weight and absorption rate. This is why certain oils suit certain skin types better. But all these factors balance themselves perfectly in argan oil, which is why it works equally well for all skin types (yes, for oily skin too). It lightly moisturises oily skin, leaving it soft and supple.
Helps ease breakouts
If you are worried about using oil on oily skin, then we strongly urge you to give argan oil a try. Argan oil is enriched with vitamin E that acts as a major anti-inflammatory for red, reactive skin. It prevents excess sebum production by balancing out your sebum levels, so you’ll have fewer breakouts and less irritation than before. Additionally, as argan oil is choke full of antioxidants, it helps soothe eczema and fade scars.
Unlike a lot of oils such as coconut oil and olive oil that can primarily clog pores, argan falls at the other end of the risk scale. In fact, argan oil has almost no comedogenic properties making it extremely safe for people with acne-prone skin.
People with acne usually tend to have lower levels of linoleic acid in their sebum. That’s another point where argan oil comes to your rescue. Because it’s very high in linoleic acid it can provide natural support to your skin and thereby soothe acne.
