How Argan Oil Soothes Irritated Skin in Polar Climate
January 8th, 2014
Argan oil is known to soothe irritated skin in the midst of the most intense climate. The ‘polar vortex’ has had a profound effect on the New York area and that includes delicate faces. Much damage can occur to dermal health in this deep wintry chill driven in by the barrage of seasonal storms. In this weather the skin becomes dry and chapped which in turn reveals a lackluster visage when the full toll is accounted. But no need to despair this nourishing Moroccan oil can soothe and restore a glowing healthy complexion with daily application.
Can argan oil protect skin from further damage?
As a celebrated ingredient in high end skin care, argan offers vitamin E (tocopherols) and carotenes found in vitamin A that are critical for protecting the skin from damage and soothing the irritation of inflammation. Sensitive skin can also benefit from the innumerable vitamins and minerals in this much sought after natural face care.
Vitamin E improves elasticity and strengthens collagen to fend off brittle texture that can ultimately lead to the fine lines and wrinkles of premature aging. Carotenes prevent UV damage that occurs even in the winter months when the impact of sun exposure is often underestimated. The dermis tends to be most vulnerable when these environmental factors are overlooked. Preventing this damage can help to retain a younger appearance.
Does Argan oil have anti-aging properties?
Yes, this age-defying elixir saturates the skin with a wide range of nutrients to promote youthful radiance. Rich in fatty acids, 5 varieties to be exact, argan lavishes the skin with its abundant anti-aging properties. Palmitic, stearic, linoleic, oleic, and linolenic are trusted forms of fatty acids found in many top shelf face care products that include this illustrious oil. It has been proven as one of the most effective anti-aging ingredients since its discovery in Morocco hundreds of years ago, maintaining ageless appearance there in desert tundra.
Where I can I find the best argan skincare?
Many products now contain this indispensable oil because of the 80% fatty acid content. However, what most of these products don’t generally offer is 100% pure argan oil, so it is essential to shop for quality skincare. Cheaper products usually lack potency, so check labels to be sure you go home with quality skincare to reap visible age-defying benefits. Inquire at the best NYC spas for their top choice argan oil source. Some day spas, such as Joanna Vargas Skincare Sanctuary, carry their own line of face care that include this lauded “fountain of youth” oil.
