Understanding Why Skin Tends to Dry

Our body contains many of oils and some of these maintain the skin’s outer layer.

This outer skin layer is our moisture barrier that prevents water loss and so preserves vitality. If these oils diminish, so does your skin’s ability to renew and retain moisture.

As we age, there is also gradual decrease in the production of essential skin oils and lipids.

The result? Signs of aging.

Why is Argan Oil So Good for Dry Skin?

Argan Oil is naturally beneficial for dry skin because of its unique nutritional content.

Some of the more well known compounds that have benefits for your skin include:

💧 Vitamin E[0] – a powerful antioxidant that fights cell damage.
💧 Oleic acid[6].
💧 Linoleic acid [13].
💧 Stearic acid [15].
💧 Lauric acid [1].
💧 Triglycerides [18].
💧 Plant sterols.

All of these are proven to contribute to a more healthy skin with topical application.

It is worth noting that adding essential fatty acids ( Omega’s ) to our diet can also have a big impact on skin dryness.
