liquidgold

We can’t say it enough: if you have just one product in your beauty cabinet (I know! Imagine! Just one?!), it should be argan oil. Here are ten ideas for how to make this wonder oil work for you, from head to foot and everywhere in between.

1. Create a hydrating styling spray for hair.It works well to refresh curls between washes.Combine a small amount of argan oil with water and aloe vera and store in a bottle with spray pump top.Shake well before every use. Lightly mist wet or dry hair, concentrating on the ends and avoiding hairline.

2. Get shinier, healthier hair and scalp.First, massage argan oil onto dry scalp.Then, mix a few drops with 1 part apple cider vinegar to 4 parts water, and spritz onto dry hair.Leave for 15 minutes.Wash hair as usual.

3. One drop argan oil with one drop each of tea tree and lavender essential oil makes an overnight blemish treatment to combat inflammation, redness, and soreness– without dehydrating or damaging skin.

4. For a moisturizing lip treatment, combine two drops with honey and spread over lips.

5. Make your own hydrating mask: 1 tbsp. of honey– a great humectant, 1/2 avocado –filled with fatty omegas, and 2 tbsp yogurt. Mash together to form a paste, spread evenly on face and let sit for 15 minutes.Rinse well.  Bonus: want a video demo of this?  Check it out by clicking here.

6. Add a few drops to your body lotion for extra softness all over.

7. For a body scrub that exfoliates and improves circulation, combine argan oil with espresso or coffee grounds.Work into skin and rinse off in the shower.

8. Massage into cuticles to help nail growth.

9. For a radiant glow, add a drop of argan oil to foundation, tinted moisturizer, or bronzer.

10. Work a fair amount into heels and over feet, cover with socks, and wake up with softer soles.

10 Reasons Why the Kahina Antioxidant Mask is a Must-Have

1. Scented with invigorating eucalyptus and mint, the Kahina Antioxidant Mask is multi-tasking skin maintenance. Deep cleanse, exfoliate, hydrate, and treat skin concerns in 5-10 minutes a week.

2. Rhassoul clay from the high Atlas Mountains in Morocco forms the base. This clay has negatively charged ions which attract positively charged impurities like bacteria in the skin, drawing them out and…

3. …replacing them with nourishing trace minerals like magnesium, potassium, calcium and…

4. Silica, which has been shown to stimulate collagen production, helping to firm and tone skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines.

5. Acai, pomegranate, and argan oil are rich sources of antioxidants that can repair existing cell deformation—a cause of physical signs of aging– and protect against future damage.

6. Hydrate & smooth: this clay mask is not designed to harden or leave skin feeling dry. Rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin E, argan oil provides excellent moisture to deeper layers of skin since its small molecular structure allows it to absorb easily.

7. Rhassoul is fine yet granular so you’ll perform gentle physical exfoliation as the mask is removed.

8. Intended for all skin types, there’s something for everyone. In addition to its healing & nourishing properties, our Antioxidant Mask has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as rosemary, peppermint, and geranium, great for acneic and oily skin types.

9. A percentage of profits go toward Berber women cooperatives who make the argan oil we use in the mask. These proceeds fund business, literacy, and education programs & initiatives.

10. This mask is 100% natural, with a 59% organic content. Your weekly toxic-free skincare regimen is complete.
