Beauty Spotlight: Why we’re Nuts about Sweet Almond Oil

What if we told you there was a natural beauty product out there that could reduce wrinkles, cleanse the pores, banish dandruff, brighten up dark circles, treat split ends AND even fade tan lines? Today, we’re shining a big bright beauty spotlight on sweet almond oil, which can do all that and more! This nut oil is light and silky and just loaded with nutrients, making is amazingly good for the condition of your skin and hair.

Here’s a look at ten common hair and skin complaints, and how almond oil provides the perfect natural beauty fix:

1. Dark Circles

Dab sweet almond oil under your eyes before bedtime, to brighten up those dark under-eye shadows. This ultra-natural treatment will work overnight to brighten the skin and “reduce crow’s feet” around the eyes too.

2. Fine Lines

Gently massaging almond oil into your skin will tone and tighten those ageing areas. Sweet almond oil promotes the renewal of skin cells, leaving your complexion looking younger and more radiant.

3. Tan Lines

It’s a little-known face that almond oil can also be used to reduce tanning. Mix sweet almond oil with honey, lime juice and milk powder to make a smooth paste. Then spread it over your skin, leave for 20 minutes and rinse off with warm water. This will help to fade those pesky tan lines, and restore lost moisture to your skin as well.

4. Redness

The anti-inflammatory powers of sweet almond oil make it great for reducing skin redness, irritation and blemishes.

5. Chapped Lips

A dab of almond oil and honey will leave your thirsty lips softer and smoother – and delicious too!

6. Rough Skin

Sweet almond oil is wonderfully hydrating and loaded with vitamin E, which makes it a great natural moisturiser for rough or dry skin. It’s also light and non-greasy, making it the perfect hydrating lotion for dry heels, hands and elbows.

7. Dull Hair

Almond oil is loaded with magnesium, which helps to promote healthy, strong and shiny hair, and to prevent hair fall. Massage a little sweet almond oil into your scalp, then wrap your hair in a warm, moist towel to improve absorption.

8. Split Ends

Apply a little sweet almond oil to dry split ends twice a week, to improve the hair’s condition and add shine.

9. Makeup

Lightweight and non-greasy, sweet almond oil makes a great makeup remover. Use a few drops on a clean cotton swab to wipe away your makeup; it will open up the pores to ensure you remove every trace, giving you a clean complexion before bedtime. Almond oil can be used on all skin types, and it’s also great for preventing the occasional pimple from popping up!

10. Dandruff

Almond oil helps to remove dead skin cells, soothing the scalp and banishing dandruff flakes. Massage almond oil into your scalp, and leave for 30 minutes before washing it out with a natural shampoo.
