WHAT CAN ALMOND OIL DO FOR SKIN & OVERALL HEALTH

Almond oil, rich in Vitamin E and A is easily absorbed into your skin and hair. The almond oil is perfectly adapted to sensitive skin types thanks to its hypoallergenic properties and strong antioxidants. It is a great base for beauty recipes due to its pleasant odour and light texture. It absorbs well into the skin while nourishing and hydrating it. A small amount of vitamin K is also contained in the precious oil.

  • Almond oil is a strong ally for various common skin problems: prevents acne, dark circles and eye bags, treats skin rashes and reduces signs of aging.

  • Rich in protein, omega-9 and fatty acids, almond oil has strong benefits for the hair. Its emollient and sclerosant properties mak hair look smooth, silky and shiny. Nutriments help reduce breakage and improve hair resilience. Rich in vitamin E - a natural antioxidant, almond oil helps fight against pollution and UV.

HOW TO USE IT 

Face: Rub a few drops of almond oil between before applying it onto your face. You may use it daily as a natural moisturiser after water-based treatments ideally.

Eyelashes: Dip a clean mascara brush in almond oil and gently run it through your eyelashes before going to sleep. Repeat every night for a month or two for strong and longer eyelashes.

Skin: Apply a fair amount of almond oil directly on irritated or dry skin. If your skin is not irritated you may mix it with coffee or sugar granules and create your own scrub. Apply once or twice a week.

Hair: Massage it directly to your hair and let it sit for 10 minutes. Wash thoroughly with your regular shampoo. For best results mix it with it with other vegetable oil such as coconut oil or water flowers to form a rich hair mask.

Food supplement: To benefit from the actions of the almond oil, you may use on a regular basis it to boost your diet.
