ARGAN OIL DEMYSTIFIED

• WHAT IT IS

Pressed from the kernels of argan trees found in Morocco, the oil is said to be a natural hydrating ingredient that conditions hair, skin and nails. “I tried it and fell in love,” says cosmetics entrepreneur Josie Maran. “Now it’s my No. 1 beauty secret.”

• SKIN BENEFITS

“Argan oil is an antioxidant, so it can be considered an antiaging agent. The oil is also anti-inflammatory, so it can be helpful with eczema and acne,” says Miami Beach-based cosmetic dermatologist Leslie Baumann.

• HAIR BENEFITS

It absorbs easily to protect hair and tame frizz.
