4. Fights blemishes and scars
It is well known to have anti-inflammatory actions which help reduce skin inflammation and irritation, and also provide relief for minor skin problems. Scars and blemishes are reduced significantly by application of argan oil on a regular basis. It is popularly used to calm burn injuries and scars.
5. Combats eczema
Those who have oily skin can find it very helpful since it regulates the production of sebum that often causes acne and skin problems. In addition, argan oil is effective and has been used to treat psoriasis and eczema. It also prevents the appearance of stretch marks after pregnancy.
However, argan has its limitation as well; it is comedogenic and limited in nature. Though it is effective when it comes to treating psoriasis, it usually clogs the pores of the skin making it vulnerable to acne.
