Sweet Almond Oil -
Sweet almond oil is a mild oil that has a variety of applications, especially in the health and beauty arena.
It is made by warm-pressing and concentrating sweet almonds, which are the longer, more oval-shaped almonds common for baking or snacking. With high concentrations of vitamin E.
Using the right oil can make the difference between having dull, dry skin and smooth, healthy skin that glows. Almond oil is one oil that provides moisture, vitamins and antioxidants that are necessary in caring for the skin, as the Beauty Cosmetic Guide says. The helpful benefits of this oil can work for any skin type, especially dry skin.
Almond oil is known mostly for its moisturizing effects. According to natural-homeremedies.org, almond oil enhances the appearance of the complexion and makes the skin smooth and supple. It is a perfect massage oil because of its lubricating properties and how easily it spreads but it is not excessively greasy like many other oils. In addition, almond oil alleviates dryness and gives moisture to the skin.
As herbs.ygoy.com states, almond oil is rich in Vitamins A, B1, B2 and E and relieves itching. It is the perfect oil for any skin type but people with dry skin will benefit the most from using it. Almond oil provides overall nourishment to the skin so it can be healthy with a radiant glow.
Almond oil is also known for its healing properties when used on the skin. Issues like psoriasis, eczema, sunburn, dermatitis and muscle pain can be relieved with the use of almond oil, as herbs. Almond oil also balances moisture levels (naturalhandcraftedsoap.com) and when the skin is properly moisturized it can heal faster from problems it might face. Some people even find that almond oil helps with acne and scars but this has not been proven.
Protecting and Preventing
Almond oil is helpful for protecting the skin and preventing some unwanted problems from occurring. Perhaps the most common things that the use of almond oil can prevent are premature aging and inflammation of the skin. If these problems are already underway then almond oil might be able to help relieve them. Not only does almond oil protect the skin but it also refines the structure of the skin, stimulates cell renewal and helps fight against the unwanted effects of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, or sagging skin, according to beauty-cosmetic-guide.com. Almond oil can also help to relieve skin irritation and inflammation and can lighten dark circles, most specifically around the eyes, as stated by indiaparenting.com. This source says that almond oil delays the aging process as it is a rich source of vitamin E and of some essential minerals like magnesium and calcium.
