There’s been quite a bit of buzz lately about the skin benefits of Argan oil and how it can effectively treat and help minimize the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis. Argan oil is made from the Argan tree only found in the southwest part of Morocco and until recently has been very rare. It has been known for its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and has been said to have very distinct benefits for the skin.
Argan Oil for Eczema And Psoriasis Treatment
Since Argan oil is known as an anti-inflammatory, its immediate benefit on psoriasis would be reducing the red patches found on the skin as well as reducing the chance for future breakouts since the skin is often made softer without clogging skin pores like many crams and ointments often do. Its anit-bacterial properties would also reduce the chance of infection from those suffering from eczema or psoriasis since the breakouts and flaky skin patches often do not heal well on their own and can become inflamed and infected. Argan oil also has very high concentrations of vitamin E which helps keep skin healthy and promote new skin growth. This reduces not only the dry flaky skin effect of eczema but also keep psoriasis breakouts at bay.
When choosing a product made from Argan oil, be sure to choose an all natural product that is free from other chemicals which can not only reduce the healing effects on the skin, they can often make some problems worse. Be sure the product you are buying contains 100% Argan oil to ensure the best benefit possible.
