10 Benefits of Almond Oil for Skin

Happy Wednesday, friends!

If you've been around my blog for a while, you know that I love natural alternatives for beauty products.  I use coconut oil as makeup remover, lotion, moisturizer, in cooking and with my essential oils.  I'm learning about other oils as well such as almond oil, grapeseed oil and avocado oil and their health benefits.

Today, Rida from Beautiful You, is guest posting to talk about the benefits that almond oil can provide for your skin.

1 // Make-up Remover

Almond oil is very light. Even though it’s an oil, there’s nothing oily about it. It absorbs into your skin very quickly and if you wipe it off, it wipes off. It does a very good job at removing eye makeup. Mascara and eye liner come off pretty well too. And the best thing about it is that it doesn’t clog your skin.

2 // Scrub

Almond oil can be used to make facial scrub because it can act as a sugar and salt carrier. So it can be used as the carrier oil. Basically, sugar or salt in a scrub work as a remover of dirt and dry skin from the face. Afterwards a moisturizer is necessary for the scrubbed skin and almond oil works as that moisturizer. Almond scrub is very easy and convenient to make because it consist of ingredients which are easily available in your kitchen cabinet.

3 // Skin cell Renewal

Almond oil renews skin cells and invigorates body. It makes your skin look a lot fresher, younger and revived. This is a natural way to bring life back to your skin.

4 // Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Almond oil consists of zinc which helps in healing wounds. People have also claimed that almond oil gives a soothing effect on their allergic skin. Minor wounds are also healed using almond oil. But it might not be good for some people’s skin, so before using it to treat any wounds do a small patch test just to be sure that it suits you.

5 // Skin Whitening

There are a tons of skin whitening products in the market but they consist of chemicals which some people have a problem with. Almond oil improves complexion and dark spots are also reduced with time.

6 // Dark Circles

If you’ve dark under eye circles then apply a little bit of almond oil on that area before you go to sleep and you let it work while you sleep. After a couple of weeks you’ll notice that the area around your eyes will look a lot fresher and awake.
7 // Pain Relief

Almond oil can be used for pain relief too. If you warm up some almond oil and massage the area that hurts then you’ll notice that the discomfort goes away.

8 // Nails

The potassium and the zinc in almond oil helps the nails become stronger and healthier. You can rub a few drops of almond oil on your nails and cuticles after washing your hands and you’ll see the difference.

9 // Hand or Foot Cream

Almond oil is very light and comparatively less greasy. It absorbs into your skin instantly. That’s why it’s an excellent substitute for hand and foot creams.

10 // Reduces Signs of Aging

Almond oil massages increase blood circulation and tightens wrinkly and aging skin.
 It is also known for renewal of skin cells and invigoration of body which prevent signs of aging.
