Applying Argan oil
For pure raw Argan oil, only a few drops are sufficient to apply to the whole face. Usually applied by a dropper the oil can be used at night as a moisturizing agent. It is non-greasy and non-oily and absorbs into the skin readily and does not leave any oily feel if used in the appropriate amount. It can also be used as a base for make-up because of its non-oily nature.
For nails, an equal mixture of lemon juice and Argan oil is all that is needed. Dip your nails and cuticles into the mixture for about 10 minutes. The treatment will increase the softness of cuticles and strengthen the nails.
On the scalp drop the oil into the desired area and rub in. It can also be used as a conditioner for hair. Use a small amount and run your fingers through your hair.
