So is argan oil really good for your skin? And what are the benefits?

According to The Dermatology Review, pure argan oil is rich in vitamin E and unsaturated fatty acids, which can benefit dry skin as well as address certain skin problems, like acne. The oil also has moisturising properties, as it reportedly contains substances known as sterolins, which help promote healthy skin cell metabolism and retain the skin's moisture.

When it comes to anti-ageing, there are other benefits, as argan oil's antioxidants prevent "oxidative damage from environmental" factors.

According to Underground Health Reporter, "Pure argan oil is easily absorbed, and it regulates the pH balance of the skin, which in turn protects against sun exposure and other damage".
