Known as ‘Badam’ in Hindi, Almond originated in West Asia, North Africa and Mediterranean regions, but today it is grown in many parts of the world. Its natural oil possesses immense health benefits, being rich in minerals, vitamins, dietetic fiber and monosaturated fats.
Let’s see the skin benefits of Almond:
1) Natural moisturizer
With Almond oils and pastes you can simply discard your chemical laden conventional moisturizers and serums. This natural product not only cleanses facial skin, but also keeps the skin healthy. This is possible because of olein glyceride linoleic acid and Vitamin E contained in it that is important for a healthy skin. What’s more Almond oil is not greasy, does not clog pores and quickly gets absorbed into the skin.
2) Treats acne, blackheads and whiteheads
Acne, blackheads and whiteheads result from blocked pores that trap dirt and oil. However, Almond oil regulates oil secretion from the skin’s sebaceous glands to prevent this breakout. Regular application of Almond oil not only reduces acne, but also reduces rashes and soothes skin inflammation. It also works to prevent arid and prickly skin.
3) Clears impurities from the skin
Scrubbing is an essential part of proper skin care regime. Almond can be made into an effective exfoliating scrub and used as an exfoliator to massage the skin. The result is an even-toned skin, clear of skin impurities.
4) Prevents premature aging
Almond possess age-defying properties that fight signs of aging. It keeps the skin supple and youthful by fading fine lines and wrinkles. Regular application of Almond oil helps revitalize the skin.
5) Protects from the sun
The Vitamin E contained in Almonds acts as a shield against sun exposure. This skin-friendly nutrient not only minimizes skin damage, but also effectively treats skin burns and other skin problems.
It also acts as a mild disinfectant for wounds.
6) Reduces dark circles and puffy eyes
Almond’s moisturizing properties effectively reduce dark circles and puffy eyes. This is way better than readymade eye creams.
7) Reduces eye wrinkles
Almond oil works as an excellent eye wrinkle serum. What’s more, it also acts as a natural makeup remover that not only protects the skin from harsh effects of cosmetics, but also leaves it glowing.
8) Treats stretch marks
Almond oil possesses emollient properties that prove excellent in fading stretch marks. Not only this, it also strengthens the skin to resist tearing, thereby preventing stretch marks.
9) Good for hair
Almond oil promotes hair growth, reduces hair fall, strengthens and nourishes hair and treats dandruff. This is because this oil contains hair-friendly nutrients and minerals, such as magnesium, poly-saturated and monosaturated fatty acids and several vitamins, like Vitamin A, D, B1, B2 and B6.
