1. Double cleansing:

Double cleansing is my favorite cleansing ritual as it gives a clear and glowing complexion. Other than store-bought oil cleansers, I find this work effectively. So consider this non-comedogenic formula to do the trick. The bonus is it doesn’t clog pores. 
1/2 teaspoon is enough for face and neck. Massage into skin with fingertips using circular motion for few seconds, giving special focus on forehead, chin and the area around nose. You may notice melting off makeup, sunblock, dirt, excess oil. Then wash off with a water based cleanser. And you’re ready for the next steps.
2. Facial Oil:

Argan oil is popularly used as a skin moisturizer as it hydrates and softens the skin. It’s recommended to include in your night ritual. Take 2-3 drops on your palms and apply on your clean and wet face. This lightweight product sinks in very fast. Let it work overnight and wake up with a youthful and flawless complexion.

Please keep in mind that technically, oils can’t be considered as moisturizers. Actually they act as a barrier to the skin and prevent moisture to evaporate. So, I always recommend to apply oils on wet face or layer it on your regular moisturizer.  

3. Scrubber:

Mix a few drops with Oats or Coffee powder and use it as your weekly scrubber. You can use it on face and body both.

4. Cuticle oil:

Clean and hydrated cuticle is what you need to get healthy nails. It also treats dry, brittle nails that may lead to severe infections. Applying few drops every night will be an easy solution for all these.

5. Body Oil:

After shower apply on your slightly damp skin, focusing on elbows, knees and heels. It will keep you hydrated whole day. You can also use it at night to get rid of dry patches on elbows and knees and also cracked heels. 

6. Hair Oil:

This miracle formula has many benefits for hair. It’s great for dry, damaged hair due to its ability to lock moisture into the hair follicles. Try this as your weekly Pre-poo treatment. Apply directly or mix with your favorite hair mask and rinse to get soft, silky and shiny mane.
