Sweet Almond Oil for different skin types

Sweet almond Oil is a natural moisturizer that can be used for any type of skin. It’s particularly beneficial for dry, flaky, and sensitive skin. It’s a light oil that is nicely absorbed into the skin and doesn’t leave it feeling too greasy. Here are the benefits for different skin types:

Sensitive skin – Almond oil is mild and has hypoallergenic properties which make it great for sensitive skin. As Sweet Almond Oil is 100% natural, it has a lower risk than most moisturizers for sensitive skin. That said, you should always test out new products on a small patch of skin your first in order to make sure you are not allergic.

Dry/Mature skin – Ageing is natural but premature aging isn’t.

Almond oil is wonderful for your dry/mature skin. It helps to plump and firms the skin, thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It is also a gentle exfoliator, so it helps remove dry, dead skin cells and reveal the smooth, glowing skin underneath.

Acne Prone skin –  One of the best characteristics of almond oil is that it is very light texturally. The substances present in almond oil get rid of sebum, which clog pores, and eventually lead to acne and pimple. So Almond Oil is wonderful for this skin type.

Oily skin – Natural facial oils give a boost of hydration, even people with oily skin can benefit from using them! When you have breakout prone skin, the last thing you want to do is put an oil on your skin that is going to clog your pores. Sweet Almond Oil is fairly non-comedogenic oil, which means it won’t clog your pores which makes almond oil a great treatment for oily skin.


How to use Almond Oil in your beauty regimen

Heat a few drops of Sweet Almond Oil in palms of the hands and apply gently to your body in circular motion. You will achieve the best results when the skin is damp, so do this just after a shower, this will add an extra layer of hydration. Sweet Almond absorbs fast, so just after a couple of minutes, you can get dressed or continue on with your usual skincare routine. Sweet Almond Oil is also great for a massage.

Sweet Almond Oil for hair growth

Every day we lose around a hundred hair strands, but it does not affect our total hair volume because of new hair growth that replaces the old. But if hair fall is heavier than normal, our scalp will show visible signs of thinning which can be very disturbing. Exposure to environmental pollutants, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal inbalance, and stress are main reasons for excessive hair loss.

Deficiency of magnesium and calcium in particular results in poor hair growth and hair loss. Zinc is another important mineral for healthy hair; its deficiency is known to cause alopecia, characterized by thinning of hair. Almond oil is rich in all of these minerals. You will need to use almond oil on a regular basis to control hair loss.


How to use? Warm one tablespoon of oil and apply it to the scalp every night after your shower or bath. Rub it in gently until most of the oil is absorbed into the scalp. Leave it on overnight for best results, shampoo as usual in the morning.

Almond oil uses for long and shiny hair

Let’s talk about benefits of Almond Oil for hair. Not only the scalp, but the hair shaft also can benefits from almond oil. The glands in the scalp produce an oily substance that forms a natural protective coating on each strand of hair. But hair can become too dry and brittle from frequent use of shampoos that strip the hair of these natural oils. This results in breakages and split ends that reduce the length of the hair.

 Restore the protective oil layer by applying Sweet Almond Oil to your hair right after washing it with a gentle organic shampoo. First, dry the hair with a towel to remove excess moisture. Rub the oil between your palms and run your hand through the entire length of the hair to coat every strand evenly. Leave the hair to air dry naturally, gently combing occasionally with a wide-toothed comb to separate the strands. This treatment gives hair a nice sheen, besides making it manageable and tangle-free.

Almond Oil for Nails and Cuticles
