What is it:
I use Josie Maran’s 100% Argan Oil on my face and hands. At 34 years old my face looks and feels better than it did at 24.
Where can you get it:
$96 for 4 oz.
I stopped using harsh products (retinA, or Proactive or whatever I was getting from the dermatologist) that strip the face and hands of natural oil and moisture. My friend and celebrity makeup artist Adrienne Bearden told me about the product Josie produces and she actually gave me my first sample. The sample came with a promise that this oil was going to be transformational for me. I was very hesitant! Using oil on my face was a scary thing for me to do. I took a chance on Josie’s Argan Oil while having a major face acne breakout during my last pregnancy with my twin girls. At the time my skin was just a mess and I was having hyper-pigmentation scarring every time I had a breakout (even if I didn’t pick at it.) I was frustrated and sad. I was scared to try an oil on my skin because It seemed counter intuitive to use when I had acne. I thought, isn’t acne caused by too much oil and dirt and raging hormones? But, as Adrienne Bearden promised, it worked to bring my skin to balance and perfect health. Today, six months after giving birth to my daughters, my skin absolutely glows.
Japanese women have known this secret of using oils to cleans and moisturize the face for centuries. No wonder they have such lovely skin!
