Beauty trends come and go, but there's never a shortage of must-have "miracle workers." Over the last few years, the attention has shifted over to argan oil, a product that's procured from the argan tree, grown in Morocco. It's being touted for its ability to rejuvenate skin and take years off your appearance - from head to toe. Argan oil is rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids. When it comes to skin problems, argan oil is the answer to many women's prayers. It's said to be effective in combating wrinkles, dry skin, eczema, psoriasis and acne. It's also known for its restorative properties to help women achieve a more youthful look. In addition, the versatile product is also used on hair and nails. While it's far from inexpensive -- two ounces will set you back about $24 -- it serves a multitude of purposes. It strengthens nails and moisturizes hair and skin without making it slick and sticky. Ironically, the hype around argan oil isn't just what it's doing for women's appearances, but for women in general, specifically the Berber tribe of Morocco.
