Uses and benefits of almond oil for your skin


When it comes to your skin, you want to give it the best possible love and care. It’s important to stay away from harmful ingredients that could potentially damage your skin. It’s best to stick to natural products. Almond oil benefits your skin in many ways and is a great option to include in your regime. It has many uses and provides some amazing benefits.

Just like other nuts, almonds are packed with vitamin E and antioxidants, making almond oil a must-have ingredient in many beauty products. Consider it therapy for your skin; nourishing, moisturising and reviving even the driest of skins.
 

Benefits of almond oil

If your skin could do with a revamp, read on to discover the incredible benefits almond oil has for your skin:

• Mild and Hypoallergenic

There are some products that people with sensitive skin need to avoid. Their skin is much more fragile, and any unrecognisable ingredient can trigger a reaction. That’s what makes almond oil a fantastic substitute. It’s mild and lightly textured to relieve skin problems gently.

• Improve Complexion and Skin Tone

Almond oil protects your skin from free radicals and harmful UV rays. So, if you are trying to achieve a radiant, glowing complexion, almond oil is your solution.

• Hydration Station

It’s time to say goodbye to dry, flaky skin. Almond oil has been used for centuries to treat common dry skin conditions. A few drops are more than enough to leave you with smooth, supple skin.

No More Dark Under-Eye Circles

Put the concealer down: we have a better way to get rid of those dark, under eye circles. The anti-inflammatory benefits of almond oil reduce puffiness and swelling of the skin.

Reduces Scars, Stretch Marks and Dark Spots

Scars, stretch marks and dark spots are natural and the body’s way of self-healing. The contents in almond oil can assist in reducing the appearance of these skin concerns. Regular application to the targeted area can improve your skin’s overall look.

Before we jump into the uses of almond oil, if you have a nut allergy or worried about how it will affect your skin, do a patch test first. This will give you peace of mind before diving right in.
 

Uses of almond oil

Almond oil has so many uses in skin care. From makeup removers and massage oils to face scrubs and skin treatments, we’re nuts about the power of almond oil.

Massage Oil

Mix a little almond oil with some essential oils and you’ve got yourself a DIY massage oil. It absorbs deeply and quickly into the skin once applied. Almond oil for baby massage is popular too.

Makeup Remover

Take a few drops of almond oil and rub it between the palms of your hands. Lightly dab your face with the oil and allow it to sit for a minute or two. Then proceed to remove all dirt and makeup with a cotton pad.

Skin Exfoliator

Exfoliators are scrubs designed to remove the dead skin cells on your skin. To make your own, take a tablespoon of sugar and a teaspoon of almond oil (you can even add in a drizzle of honey for extra benefits) and mix. Apply gently to your skin and wash to reveal your glow.

Skin Treatments

Did you know that another benefit of almond oil is that it has antifungal properties? It can be used to help prevent athlete’s foot by putting some oil on the sole of the foot. It can even help remove ringworm, how amazing is that?
