The great benefits of almond oil
absorbs quickly & easily none Almond oil works great as a nourishing moisturizer for your skin. Though it may feel weird if you haven't tried it, using natural oil as a moisturizer is a great way to keep your skin hydrated. Most unnatural cream "moisturizers" actually end up clogging pores even though they do technically hydrate the skin, which is why using oil as a moisturizer is great for oily and acne-prone skin. Like evening primrose oil, almond oil is quickly and easily absorbed into the skin, and won't clog pores, so you won't look or feel oily or "greasy."
Another added benefit of using almond oil is that you can mix it with other oils, such as evening primrose oil, sea buckthorn oil, tea tree oil, or jojoba oil, to name a few, for a custom moisturizer formula. Personally, I like to use a couple drops of almond oil mixed with a couple drops of evening primrose oil as a morning moisturizer, and then a mix of almond oil, evening primrose oil, sea buckthorn oil, and tea tree oil at night before bed.
Natural oils, especially almond oil, are also extremely affordable. A few ounces will last you months since you only need to use 2-3 drops at a time for your entire face. You will find that almond oil makes your skin more soft, supple, and even-toned, and gives it a natural, healthy, radiant "glow." Many people also like to add almond oil to their conditioner for their hair, which makes the hair shiny and soft.
Almonds are naturally very anti-inflammatory due to their healthy fatty acids. Almond oil can also reduce the effects of ultraviolet B rays on the skin. Just put a few drops in your palm and gently rub it on your face. Your skin will obviously appear oily at first, but this will go away within a few minutes once the almond oil has been fully absorbed.
NOW Foods is my favorite source for almond oil. Their sweet almond oil is 100% pure, expeller-pressed, hexane-free, and food grade (edible).
