Using Argan Oil for Face Wrinkles and Fighting Back Against Age

Wrinkles are the most prominent sign of aging that can be bestowed upon any man or woman; once they start to materialize, one has officially begun their ascension to the level of “elder”. However, in today’s world one’s physical appearance is judged to be quite important, and the more youthful it is, the better.

Though the fight against age itself is one which won’t be won anytime soon (if at all), there are still ways to fight it, and one of them is to conceal its signs. Many are wondering if they can use argan oil for face wrinkles and get rid of them, and long story short, the answer is a definitive yes. What follows is a look as to why that is the case.

Why Use Argan Oil for Face Wrinkles

There are many beneficial properties to argan oil, but for the sake of this article, we are only going to focus on the ones related to aging. To begin with, the oil contains numerous essential fatty acids and lots of vitamin E, both of which work together and act as a very powerful moisturizer. After the application, your skin will become smooth as a baby’s. In addition, it stimulates the skin’s ability to absorb and maintain moisture, further helping to keep it in good health.

The vitamins E contained in the argan oil also have very powerful antioxidant properties, which means that they improve your blood circulation by enlarging your blood vessels. This improved circulation allows your body to more easily deal with any changes or impurities which take place on the skin, effectively protecting your skin from pollution and ultra-violet radiations.

Perhaps even more importantly, the fatty acids and the tocopherols found in the argan oil contribute to improving the elasticity of your skin as well as its strength, which is pretty much another way of saying that it helps in the fight against those nasty wrinkles we all love to hate.

There really isn’t much more to say on this topic; if you are looking for a natural and cost-effective method of fighting against the many signs of aging, including wrinkles, then using pure virgin argan oil may very well be the answer to your prayers. However, it does require a bit of know-how and dedication for long-term results to be seen.

Exploring the Different Argan Oil for Face Benefits

Using argan oil as a facial and skin treatment is something which has gained in popularity recently, and just like virtually anything that gets put in the spotlight, many question it.

Is argan oil really helpful, or is it yet another scam to be forgotten with the millions of others? Well, just like with any remedy, whether it is pharmaceutical or natural, there is always a chance that it will not work for you, no matter how widely-successful it may have been.

With that being said, argan oil has been used for generations upon generations in the Middle East for both health and cosmetic reasons, meaning that there is more stock supporting the hype behind it than its competitors. In any case, here is a look at the most important argan oil for face benefits, both aesthetic and functional ones.

Excellent Moisturizer

Because we are talking about an oil, it goes without saying that it is filled with plenty of fatty acids, and they work wonders in keeping your skin moisturized. In addition to that, argan oil also has plenty of vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant which further helps to moisturize your skin, contributing to the fight against dryness.

Argan Oil Ingredients

Lip Balm

Somewhat surprisingly, our lips have developed in a way which deprived them of any natural oil glands, leading us to invent substitutes such as chap stick. Argan oil can also be used as a moisturizer for your lips and protect them against cracking and such, even creating that glossy look you’d probably need another product for.

Masking Signs of Aging

If there is one condition which has united people all over the world ever since our existence, it is our propensity to age. As we get older, our skin loses its elasticity and our immune system becomes weaker, leaving the perfect opening for various facial imperfections to set place, something we like to refer to as the signs of aging.

No, argan oil is not the long-coveted fountain of youth we have been looking for, but its ingredients are great at naturally destroying bacteria and free radicals (basically toxins), helping to prevent cell damage and keeping your skin healthier for longer.

Anti-Acne Scars Weapon

Acne is without a doubt one of the most annoying skin conditions one could have; it is unsightly and it seems like nothing will ever make it leave. What’s worse, once it finally leaves, chances are it will leave you with rather prominent scars on your face. Fortunately, you can add argan oil to the short list of potential remedies against acne scars.

Once again, the Vitamin E is the main catalyst here, with its antioxidant properties allowing the removal of dead and damaged cells while preventing the formation of new ones. In addition, absorbing the oil has for effect to decrease the sebum production in your skin, which is actually one of the best things you can do as an overabundance of sebum is what causes acne in the first place. It even goes as far as cleaning out the pores and kill the remaining bacteria.

And so, as you can see, though the argan oil for face benefits mainly revolve around improving your appearance, they can certainly help with health issues, fighting against acne scars and contributing to the sterilization of the skin, preserving it in a better condition for a longer amount of time.

How well it works for you really depends on three things: finding the right product, using it properly, and not be one of the few unlucky ones on whom argan oil is ineffective.

Learning the Easy Argan Oil for Face Massage Technique

Finding the right argan oil product is a great step in the right direction towards improving your skin health and appearance, but the fact of the matter remains that you still need to use it properly. This is where argan oil for face massage techniques come into play, and though there are many of them to speak of, I will introduce you to the easiest and most effective one.

Facial Massage Lines

The Preparation

To begin with, the oil itself needs to be prepared for application on your face. Though it’s not a problem if you use too much oil, try to only put a few drops in the bowl so that the product lasts you for longer. Heat up the oil using the “sous-vide” method (place the container inside another one filled with water, and boil it). Take out the bowl or cup with the oil once it is lukewarm. After that, use a gentle and natural (preferably) facial cleanser on your face to get it ready.

The Application

Now the time has come to apply the argan oil to your face, and begin doing so by putting a bit of the oil on your two main fingers, and then rub it on your skin. Start by rubbing in the center of the affected area, and using circular motions slowly increase the amount of space covered with your rubbing motion.

If you have one or two specific problems which need to be solved, then simply apply the oil directly to them. Otherwise, use this technique to slowly rub the oil across your entire face. The good news is that pure virgin argan oil is absorbed by your skin rather quickly, so you only need to rub it for a bit before it takes effect.


Once the oil has been applied to your face, let it sit there for about thirty minutes to an hour, depending on the condition of your skin. Alternatively, you can apply it before going to sleep, and if you want, put something akin to a ski mask on; this will ensure that the oil is completely absorbed by your face throughout the night.

Once you see and feel that the oil has been absorbed by your skin, wash it away with warm water, but make sure not to scrub your face with anything. Once the oil is washed away, use a towel to path your face. This is done to avoid irritations.

Ideally, you should repeat this process two to three times per day, but in reality it is up to you to decide that based on your situation. Just remember that no matter who you are, argan oil will take some time and dedication before showing any results, so you do need to stick to the plan diligently if you want them.

Argan Oil for Face Before and After Pictures – Seeing it Work

Unfortunately, at the moment the only way to make sure a product works without spending any money on it would be to either borrow it from a friend or hope to one day receive a free sample of whatever it is you need.

Though this approach isn’t too problematic with common articles such as clothes and electronics, things get a bit more complicated when it comes to health and beauty products, such as argan oil which has recently skyrocketed in popularity, despite having been used by families throughout generations.

At the moment, argan oil for face before and after pictures really are the best way to see for yourself that the product works, and so for your consideration, here is a brief look at three such sets of pictures from different people, each one documenting their own experience with the oil.

Repairing Blemishes

To start things off, if you are going to be using an oil for your skin chances are that not everything is perfect and there are repairs to make. As you can see from the picture above, it is someone showing the success she had fighting against acne using argan oil. In the first picture, the ravages of acne need no pointing out, leaving an unsightly and irritated skin.

In the after picture though, it seems as if the acne was never even there in the first place. Also, we can notice that the skin in the areas around the acne patch became noticeably smoother, livelier and far less dry in general.

Yes, it did take some time for the healing process to complete itself, but considering the methods were completely natural I can’t call it anything but a successful recovery from one of the most aesthetically-annoying conditions on the planet.

Overall Improvements

I chose to show two sets of pictures for this one seeing as how, from what I can see, they both depict the same benefits which originate from using argan oil. In the before pictures, we can observe the subjects having seemingly thin, dry, and generally lifeless skin. This can be best seen in the first picture set because their subject isn’t doing her best to look miserable in the “before” segment.

In the after pictures the subjects displayed noticeable improvements in skin plumpness, radiance and moisture. Though argan oil may not exactly work miracles and give you baby skin, it can certainly do its fair share to help make your skin not only healthy, but something that is good enough to marvel at (even if literally everyone has that particular something).

The Verdict

I know it takes a bit of close looking to clearly see the differences between these argan oil for face before and after pictures, but they are there, and if these visual facts are to be believed, argan oil does indeed have the potential to help you with skin problems.

However, it needs to be mentioned that for it to happen you first have to find a good quality argan oil product, and learn how to use it properly and diligently… once that’s over with though, chances are good you’ll be able to solve your problems.

Using Argan Oil for a Dry Face Condition – The “why?” and the “how?”

Despite the amazing technological advancements we have come to make, such as space travel, simple problems such as dry skin remain extremely common, to the point where virtually everyone will suffer from it one day or another. Now, there always were, are and will be supposed wonder products that will take care of the problem for you.

However, a few select ones of them have actually stood the test of time, in the sense that they were used for skin health purposes for generations upon generations, in some cases stretching to hundreds of years. Pure  virgin argan oil is one such product; it has been used for hundreds of years for various health benefits, including its ability to fight dry skin.

As it happens, using argan oil for a dry face is a very effective way of fighting the condition, but many are still skeptical about it, and so what follows is a look as to why that is the case, and how you can start the battle yourself.

Why Argan Oil for Face is Beneficial

To begin with, because of the mere fact that the product we are discussing is an oil, it has a high content of fatty acids, and they do wonders when it comes to moisturizing skin. In addition to that, argan oil has a very high vitamin E content, which is an antioxidant and contributes to the protection and reparation of your skin tissue.

In other words, using argan oil on your face will moisturize your skin, help to repair any damage it has already sustained, and on top of that shield it from future hazards. On top of that, the combination of the above-mentioned ingredients will provide a soothing sensation of relief if you have any rashes or irritations.

The use of argan oil can also help those who suffer from acne. It helps to clean out the pores and reduce the amount of inflammation. Prolonged use of the oil can tremendously help those who suffer from mild acne, reducing any unpleasant sensations while actually fighting the condition.

How to Use to Argan Oil for Dry Face

Applying the argan oil to your skin is a rather easy process, and to begin it you need to perform a preliminary cleansing of your skin with a gentle cleanser.
  • Pat your skin with a towel until the former becomes damp (as damp as can be considering your skin is dry).
  • After that, spray a few drops of argan oil on your palm and use your fingertips to pick up bits of it at a time.
  • Rub them in circular motions on your face and neck. Pay particular attention to the areas which are affected worse than others.
  • After applying the oil, wait three to five minutes to let the skin absorb the oil, and go on about your day.
  • Repeat the process twice a day: once in the morning, and once in the afternoon before bed. You can apply it more often depending on the severity of your condition.

Considering we are dealing with a case of dry skin here, it is important to take the following precautions into consideration. To begin with, do not use harsh soaps to clean your face, but rather a gentle cleanser, preferably without any fragrance and unnecessary additives.

Also, don’t rub your skin with the towel, but make sure to just pat it… otherwise, you will worsen the irritation. Be generous with the oil seeing as how your dry skin needs to be kept moist as consistently as possible. Don’t take long hot baths or showers seeing as how they will wash the oils away from your skin.

If you have the patience and dedication for it, using argan oil for a dry face can be the coveted solution you have been looking for. It should be noted though that if your case is truly an extreme one, other measures besides argan oil may need to be taken. Otherwise, you may very well take care of the problem naturally.
