Argan oil is the hot beauty trend

What do we have in common with goats that climb trees? They eat the fruit of the argan tree found in Morocco, the same trees that create argan oil, which we love to rub on literally every part of our bodies. 

Argan oil, also known as "Liquid Gold," has been used by Moroccan women for centuries for its beautifying benefits. The oil is so popular because it is a 100 percent organic source of vitamin E and essential fatty acids, making it something of a celebrity in the world of beauty.

At left: Josie Maran Argan Sugar Balm Body Scrub, $28, heals all over as it hydrates.

Its many miraculous skin and hair benefits include  moisturizing, anti-aging and healing properties for the entire body. It softens dry skin, heals acne, lightens scars, reduces wrinkles, softens cuticles, repairs damaged hair and more. What's not to love?

Check out seven of our favorite products that contain the miracle oil.

    • This photo of a dog with a mouthful of ladybugs is freaking out pet owners

      The photo that Kansas veterinarian Lindsay Mitchell posted to Facebook looked so unreal and disturbing that some who saw it went right to the hoax-busting website Snopes to verify it. But that didn’t stop the photo from being shared more than 53,000 times since it went up last week. Mitchell, of Hoisington, Kan., posted a graphic picture of a dog with a mouthful of Asian lady beetles. Ladybugs aren’t so cute when 30 to 40 of them are stuck to the roof of a dog’s mouth. “This is the second pup I have seen like this today. If your pet is drooling or foaming at the mouth look for these lady bugs. They cause ulcers on the tongue and mouth and have a very painful bite,” she wrote on the Hoisington

    • Here's why MacBook and Surface aren't using the newest Intel chips

      Apple's new MacBook Pro is an eye-catching new computer. So is Microsoft's new Surface Studio and upgraded Surface Book. But none of them use Intel's latest processors. Is that a big deal? Not as much as you'd think. Here's our explainer from August on what "Kaby Lake" really means for your next PC. Original story published August 17: The clock has stopped. The chips are down. Intel's seventh-gen Core processors, codename Kaby Lake, are now official -- but they aren't as big an upgrade as you'd expect from Intel. Sure, they're a little bit faster and a little bit more power-efficient. But the best thing about Intel new CPUs might actually be this: the deals you'll find on PCs with last year's

    • Donald Trump’s March to Loserland Is Only Beginning

      Donald Trump’s march to Loserland is only just beginning. His real pain starts the day after Election Day. As they say in his native Queens, what goes around comes around. And come it will. Accelerated business losses. A continent-wide clamoring to remove his miasmic moniker from buildings. Multiple looming lawsuits, two of them fraud actions arising from Trump University, one of those before federal Judge Gonzalo Curiel in San Diego, whom he suggested was biased because of his ethnicity. Trump will also face revelatory depositions should he follow through on threats to sue the 11 women who have recently accused him of sexual transgressions. He might remember his deposition during his 1990 divorce

    • On opening night, Jeremy Lin started a new chapter in his career

      Last year was a new experience for Jeremy Lin. It was his first season as a Charlotte Hornet. (Also his last, at least for the time being.) It was his first season playing off the ball. It was also his first playing almost exclusively as a bench player. More than 80 percent of Lin’s appearances came as a reserve. 2015-16 also saw Lin put up his highest usage rate since his breakout campaign as a Knick back in 2011-12 while setting a career-best turnover percentage mark. His role shrunk, but he used his time more wisely, and though he wasn’t tremendously efficient as a Hornet, Lin showed a level of versatility to his game. On Wednesday night, Lin entered his first season as a member of the Brooklyn
