The facial oil trend is one that originated on Instagram. Videos of makeup enthusiasts generously ‘dropping’ oil onto their skin before starting their makeup went viral. Celebrities, influencers, and makeup artists have quickly adopted facial oils as part of their daily makeup routine. With a promise of dewy, radiant skin and perfectly blended makeup, this is one practice that’s here to stay.
Keeping up with the hype, a few drops of oil are used in skincare and makeup. A drop or two of oil can keep your skin dewy, your lips soft, and hair frizz-free. That being said, not all oils are created equally and for application on your skin and hair. Argan Oil, however, is one such oil that has versatility in terms of application.
Often referred to as ‘Liquid Gold’, Argan oil is native to Morocco. Extracted from the kernels of the Argan plant, the oil has numerous uses in skin care, beauty, and overall health too. Rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids; a few drops of this golden elixir can help with acne, inflammation, dry skin, ageing, and any hair troubles. It's non-comedogenic which means it won’t cause acne. Addition of this oil to your daily routine will not only boost your glow-factor but will also help you deal with a host of skin woes. Not to mention, its lightweight consistency makes it perfect for application during the day and night.
A few drops of argan oil mixed in with your moisturiser, foundation, and even lipstick can keep your skin soft and supple while keeping problems like acne, dry skin, and wrinkles at arm's length. You could even opt for products that already have Argan oil in their composition to ensure that your makeup products are doing you more good than harm. It’s a switch that’ll have long-lasting benefits and will give you the ‘celebrity glow’ you’ve been dying to get. Lakmé’s Argan oil range is enriched with Argan Oil and there is a product for every skin type. Here are a few products you can try:
