When it comes to beauty products, nature often provides products that put man-made ones to shame. Argan oil, derived from the nuts of the argan tree, is a natural product that provides beauty and anti-aging cosmetic benefits. Raw argan oil can be applied to most parts of your body to keep nails, hair and skin healthy, while providing them with extra sheen.

Buy raw argan oil, not culinary argan oil (see Resources). Raw argan oil contains unroasted argan nuts, which retain their vitamins and fatty acids.

Store argan oil in an opaque, ultaviolet-protected bottle to preserve its vitamins and minerals for as long as possible.

Apply a few drops of argan oil to your palms and massage your face in small circles until the entire surface is covered in the oil.

Mix equal parts argan oil and lemon juice in a small receptacle. Soak your nails in the solution for 10 minutes to strengthen them and give them extra shine.

Apply argan oil to your hair, beginning with the ends. Wrap your hair in a towel when it is completely coated in oil. Leave the towel in place for half an hour or even overnight, if you prefer.

Massage your skin with argan oil after a shower. Mix with body lotion if desired or apply raw directly to the skin.
