New Delhi: Almond oil is one of the best natural sources of healthy fatty acids, antioxidants and other phytochemicals (plant-based chemicals). So whether your face skin feels damaged, dry and itchy, or you just want that natural glow, including almond oil in your daily face-care ritual can make a huge difference.
Moisturizer and Emollient
Almond oil, with its high content of healthy fatty acids, helps retain moisture on your skin’s surface and hydrates your face. This gives it a healthy glow. Being light and non-sticky, it is a good choice for all skin types.
Almond oil is rich in vitamin E, which protects your face from harmful UV rays. It can also reverse tanning to some extent.
Being high in Vitamin A, it helps smoothen fine lines and wrinkles, thus giving your skin a more youthful look.
Almond oil does not block or clog the pores on your facial skin, thus preventing skin breakouts.
The skin around the eye
Due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, almond oil can be used to reduce puffiness and dark circles around the eyes.
A little almond oil on your lips every night can heal dry, chapped lips and make them look plum and nourished.
