5 Moroccan Beauty Secrets for a Radiant Skin

November 03, 2019 2 Comments

Morocco is a country rich in natural ingredients that are as good for the skin as they are for the body. Today, we decided to reveal to you 5 Moroccan ingredients that will do wonders for your skin, as well as homemade skin care recipes: masks, face cares and skin cares with various benefits for radiant and fresh skin!

Table of content

  1. Argan oil: for a flawless skin
  2. Ghassoul or Rhassoul: for a purified skin
  3. Beldi soap: for a soft and clean skin
  4. Rosewater: for soothed skin
  5. Prickly pear seed oil: for younger skin

1. Argan Oil

Argan oil is a must-have in Moroccan cosmetics. This seed from the argan tree is native of Morocco. Glorified throughout the world for its virtues, it has found its place on your bathroom shelf, whether in its pure form or in your beauty products.

Did you know that Argan oil could be used to fight acne naturally?

In addition to its anti-aging properties, argan oil helps to restore the skin’s natural balance and heal more quickly. Thus it is an excellent anti-acne remedy that you can apply morning and evening to clean skin. To get the most out of Argan oil, make sure you buy it organic and 100% pure, this way you will be able to dilute it as you please.

We recommend Joodoor’s Organic Argan Oil, made in Morocco from pure argan seed.

 

2. Ghassoul

Ghassoul, or Rhassoul, is a cosmetic powder made from natural mineral clay extracted from the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. It is combined with water to cleanse the body and has been used by North African women for centuries to take care of their skin and hair. Ghassoul can be kept indefinitely as long as it didn’t touch the water. Ghassoul has purifying powers and is used in spas around the whole world to purify the skin.

Ghassoul Anti-blackhead mask:

In a non-metallic container pour 2 spoons of Ghassoul for 1 spoonful of water and mix with a wooden spatula (caution: never put metal in contact with Ghassoul because its high charge of negative ions can affect the effectiveness of the product). Mix until a thick and homogeneous paste is obtained. Spread on your face and leave on for 10 to 30 minutes depending on the needs of your skin. Wash your face with warm water, apply a toner like rose water and then a sebum regulating treatment like argan oil. Repeat once a week.

 

3. Beldi Soap

Beldi soap or black soap is a purifying soap and a key element used during the hammam ritual. Black soap has many benefits, it preserves your skin thanks to its gentle Ph that does not attack it like soaps sold in supermarkets would, and effectively exfoliate the body and face without damaging them.

Beldi Soap Scrub

Prepare a bath or shower and warm your skin well to open your pores. When your skin is warm, apply the Beldi soap by hand all over your body including your face and let it rest for 2-3 minutes. Rinse your skin thoroughly with soap and scrub it with previously wet horsehair or Kessa glove. For sensitive skins, apply a dab of black soap to your glove to make it softer. Rinse your skin and use a natural shower gel or apply to your body Damascus rose water.

4. Damas' Rose Water

Damascus rose water is a flagship product and an integral part of the skin routine of Moroccans. Known in particular for its refreshing, soothing and moisturizing properties, it has many assets and can be applied to the face and body. The Damascus rose comes from the peaks of the Atlas Mountains where the Rose Festival takes place every year, a magical event that has nothing to envy to other flower festivals in the world. You maximize the benefits of this rose water if you pay attention to its origin and its organic label, which guarantees pure rose water containing the best benefits.

Rosewater and honey radiant mask:

To restore your skin's radiance, there's nothing better than a rosewater mask. To do this, mix a tablespoon of honey with a tablespoon of Rosewater and apply it to the face. Leave on for 30 minutes and rinse thoroughly with cold water. The skin of your face is sure to regain its radiance!

 5. Prickly pear seed oil 

With a breathtaking vitamin E content, prickly pear oil is your anti-aging ally. Its richness in vitamin E, omega-6 and sterols make this precious oil an exceptional ingredient to fight against the signs of skin aging. It works its wonders to maintain the skin's suppleness and tone. Its emollient properties also make it very suitable for very dry and dehydrated skin.

Barbary oil as an anti-aging treatment

To be used pure or mixed with argan oil, or with your moisturizing cream: apply your oil to the entire clean and dry face and massage gently, paying particular attention to marked wrinkles, the eye and lip contour. This beauty ritual is to be applied preferably in the evening: it is during the night that the cells regenerate themselves. Be careful not to neglect the massage time and adopt slow gestures during the 3 to 5 minutes of massage for an optimal result.
