Argan Oil

Let me share with something that really has made a difference for my skin. Ever since I went back from Indonesia, my skin had been really prone to breaking out, especially my forehead. It's like there's nothing I could do. Acne kept on popping up out of nowhere, and it's really driving me nuts!

I might be late on the whole face oil bonanza. About two months ago, I finally tried out the little sample of argan oil from Josie Maran. What I have is the light version. I put it on one night as a substitute of my face moisturizer because I really wanted to know what it would do to my skin.

Lo and behold, the next morning when I woke up I looked at the mirror and I saw my gigantic zits on my forehead were diminishing instantly, just like that! I don't know what was really happening there, but it really does help in keeping me from breaking out. 
The theory behind face oil that I've been hearing people say is that when you put oil on your face, you're helping your skin not to produce excess oil, which usually what causes acne. I've heard people with oily skin also finds this a miracle worker. 

Really, this has changed my skincare routine. I read the ingredients and it was a pure argan oil, so I was thinking if it was just organic argan oil, there must be a generic brand that costs much less than the Josie Maran one. I was cheap, I know, so I risked it and bet on the Argan oil by Poppy Austin  that I bought off of This is not a light version like the sample size I had, which I believe is mixed with other component to make it less concentrated.

This works as good. I also tried to put it on my hair see how it works out. I put it on too much, and it made my fine hair looked more flat and greasy. I should've known  better. The next time I tried using less amount, and it helps detangle and smooth out my hair

My current use of Argan Oil now is putting it as a layer under my moisturizer at night. It helps the skin absorb the moisture better. Ever since I use it, I notice my skin breaks out less. I don't know what exactly the oil does to prevent my skin from breaking out, but it works for me.

All I gotta say is give it a shot.
You need to try it for yourself to see if it works for you as it does for me =)
