Almond oil is one of the most easily accessible oils: it is found in almost every drugstore, pharmacy or online shopping site. As the name suggests, it is obviously derived from almonds and holds lots of beauty benefits.
Investing in a bottle of almond oil can be a great idea: and the good news is that it is not expensive at all! Incorporate it in your beauty routine and you will achieve great results for your skin and hair. Take a look at our list of benefits of almond oil and the potential ways you can get started with it:
Almond oil is a great natural moisturizer which is easily absorbed by the skin because of the fact that its fatty composition is close to the human skin one. It contains vitamins A, E and B which are highly beneficial for the health of the largest organ in the human body.
It is also suitable for all skin types and ages. Not only it hydrates skin efficiently, but the oil also retains its glow, relieves irritations and makes it softer and smoother. It is also very helpful in the struggle against chapped lips and body rashes.
You can use it as a food and hand moisturizer too since it is easily absorbed by the skin, but it is a very strong moisturizer in the same time.
Cure dark circles around eyes
If you want to find a cure for dark circles, almond oil will be a great one! Dab a cotton pad in it and apply it to your under-eye area before you go to bed (it is very oily, so we do not recommend wearing it throughout the day!).
In a week or two you will notice the results: the dark circles will start fading away and the skin will go lighter. Remember that you can apply it to the eyelids too!
As with most skin natural oils, almond oil can also serve as a makeup remover. We advice you to use it before or after another product since it may leave some makeup behind. It will effectively open up your pores and will decrease the possibility of acne, pimples and redness.
Almond oil is a good anti-age product too. It will tighten the skin, improve blood circulation and fight wrinkles. Simply massage it into your skin for about ten minutes once weekly. The motions should be circular and the oil should be warmed up!
When it comes to hair, almond oil is definitely a miracle worker. It activates hair growth, smooths, nourishes and moisturizer hair, leaving it detangled, soft and shiny when used for a while. You can use it in two ways.
The first one is applying a generous amounts to the scalp, roots, lengths and ends of the hair and massaging it gently. Then heat it up for a minute or two with a hair dryer, so that it is efficiently absorbed and put a shower cap or a towel on. You can wash your hair with shampoo an hour later and enjoy the effect.
Almond oil can cure scalp irritations, treat dandruff, and reduce hair fall. The other way is to simply apply a drop or two to your ends just before your hair is completely dry and then blow dry it until ready. This will prevent breakage and drying of the ends of your hair.
We hope that we have convinced you that almond oil is the perfect natural oil to invest in if you want a multipurpose product which will solve lots of skin and hair problems!
