Travel & Beauty Writer Ajablue Recommends Zweena for Acne-Prone Skin

By | About Argan Oil, Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum, Reviews, Skin Care Products, Testimonials, Travels to Morocco | No Comments

Travel and beauty writer, Ajablue, spent the summer in Morocco and brought Zweena Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum with her! Typically, we recommend using the Pure Organic Argan Oil if you have acne-prone skin. Ajablue found that the Rose Serum really worked for her. She writes:

“The sun shines brightly in Morocco, particularly during the summer months. Sometimes the roads are dusty and I get tired….And a bit lazy with my beauty regime. As a result, my skin began to suffer about two weeks ago. I broke out. My face started to look haggard and dry, likely due to the Moroccan sun.

 

To get my body back on track, I pulled out a new favorite from my beauty case: Zweena Argan Rose Rejuvenating Face Serum.

Who is it good for?

  • This has been truly effective for me, a woman with sundamaged, acne-prone skin. I am glad I had this in my beauty bag while I’ve been traveling.
  • This would also be effective for women who are concerned with anti-aging.
  • It’s a soothing compliment for to use with other treatments because the ingrediants are so pure.

Application.

1. After washing my face in the evening, I first apply tea-tree oil with a Q-tip to my acne-prone areas in order to combat the pesky pimples that come with stress. Though the tea-tree oil is effective, I find it to be a bit harsh.

2. To sooth my skin after washing and treating, I apply 4 -5 drops of Zweena Argan Rose Rejuvenating Face Serum all over my face and neck. It absorbs quickly and my face immediately feels soothed and nourished, like I’m serving it food.

3. In the nighttime, I will apply a few extra drops, and wear Argan Rose Rejuvenatig Face Serum as a night cream. If it’s daytime, I can either go bare, or apply a little bit of SPF-infused concealer.

The Result.

“3 weeks of this routine has made my skin feel more resilient, more luminous, and healthy. I look more awake.” 

I think the Argan Rose Rejuvenating Face Serum is superior to a standard case of argan oil because of the added benefit of the rose and pomegranate oils.”

Berber Women Still Making Argan Oil in the Traditional Way

By | Argan Oil, Berber Women, Fair Trade Cooperatives, Skin Care Products, Travels to Morocco | One Comment

Berber women in Morocco have been making argan oil for centuries in the same traditional way. They crack the argan nuts that fall from the argan tree to get to the argan kernels. Then they grind and cold-press the argan kernels in this type of stone grinder for the culinary argan oil. Cosmetic grade argan oil is ground in a semi-mechanical cold-pressing machine. Zweena Pure Argan Oil is bought directly from a women’s fair-trade co-op in Morocco that we visit regularly. Even today, the women make it the same way.

They explained that this process preserves the “integrity” of the oil.

No heated machines. All organic and cold-pressed.

Commercial manufacturers of argan oil use heated machines which destroy a lot of the healing properties and nutrients. Cheap argan oil is usually processed with heat and is less effective in moisturizing, softening, protecting and healing the skin, hair and body. It is bought in huge drums and it’s difficult to know how long ago the oil was pressed. Commercial operations typically ship their oil by sea and may take months to arrive. Zweena buys our argan oil in small quantities as soon as it’s pressed and we have it shipped priority air, arriving in 1-2 weeks. It’s super fresh!

“Argan oil was one of the first gifts I gave to my wife and she fell in love with it,” says Yakoubi. “That was our first inspiration. We feel proud to bring argan oil, which is referred to in Morocco as ‘liquid gold’, to the US. It’s been our miraculous beauty secret for centuries. We chose the argan cooperative where we buy our oil very carefully. It’s pure, organic, first cold-pressed and of the highest quality.”
