Argan Oil has been referred as ‘liquid gold’ and I want to know what all the hype is about with this super ingredient. I have done my research and tested a few products that contain Argan Oil to see if it really did make a difference. I wanted to find out what the benefits of using Argan Oil really were on my skin. Not just a one trick pony, Argan Oil is full of antioxidants, essential fatty acids and Vitamin E Argan Oil can be used on the face, body and hair to relieve dryness and rough skin. It improves the skin’s barrier function, protects against ageing free radicals and improves elasticity in one hit.
“Argan oil is an organic product extracted from the kernels of the argan tree, which is native to Morocco.”
I was kindly sent products from the ZIAJA Natural Argan Oil Range to try and I really like them. What I loved most about them was how quickly they absorbed into my skin. If you are a a busy lady who doesn’t have time to wait for moisturiser to dry then this is one for you this winter.
Hand cream was something that I never really gave much time to but this winter my hands and nails are so dry! I keep this product in my desk at work and apply throughout the day when I need it. This ZIAJA hand cream absorbed really quickly into my skin which I loved. Argan Oil is super for protection and healing which is needed on our hands during the winter. It is best used as a preventive for dry or sore skin, but it can also be used to speed up healing. It’s properties include reducing inflammation, soothing pain and increasing healing rate. Argan oil’s softening properties are ideal for brittle nails, dry hands and cracked, hard skin on feet. It both moisturises and softens skin, leaving hands and feet supple, soft with nails becoming strong and healthy. My nails lately have been in terrible condition. I started using this product and noticed a difference after a couple of days. Never did I see the day where I would harp on about a hand cream being amazing!
*Top Tip for any ladies who lift weights at the gym. Use hand cream everyday after to gym to stop blisters and skin building up on your hands. I lift weights in the gym but hate what it does to my hands. This product has really helped my hands.
This ZIAJA Body Lotion is very light and again absorbed really quickly to my skin. It smells amazing which is another plus. I have actually been using this in the morning on my face to mix up my moisturing routine. I suffer from dry skin and often changing one or two products in your routine can make a huge difference. So far so good using this ZIAJA product. Argan Oil is supposed to have Anti-Aging properties, here’s to hoping. Luckily I am young but I will soon have to take this factor into consideration.
My skin so far this winter is extremely dry. I have forgone wearing makeup to work so that I can constantly moisturise my skin. For me, I need to look after my skin before it gets bad or I will spend weeks trying to get it back to normal. Looking after your skin will also do wonders for your makeup. No more foundation sitting in dry patches or cracked lips while wearing matte lipsticks. So far I really like these ZIAJA products and I hope to try more from the range soon so keep an eye out.
