If you have split ends or dry skin or nails you should know about Argan oil. It comes from the plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree in Morocco. What you really need to know is that it’s a star moisturizer. You can buy it pure or you can find it as a key ingredient in many creams and conditioners. Drugstore and prestige brands are coming out with their own versions. Here are a couple worth knowing about:
Olie Biologique 100% Organic Argan Oil ($40) Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil ($48)
To use, apply a few drops on your face, split ends, cuticles, cuts and scrapes, whatever needs a little extra TLC. We put a few droplets of the do-everything healers into our creams and moisturizers to give ‘em a little boost. The oils are organic and chemical-free—a skincare staple particularly for those who use strictly natural cosmetics.
