10 AMAZING BENEFITS OF ALMOND OIL FOR HAIR AND SKIN

10 AMAZING BENEFITS OF ALMOND OIL FOR HAIR AND SKIN

Almond oil cannot be used for skin” said no one ever!

This is one oil that’s extremely versatile, light and non-greasy and brings with it a multitude of benefits for both, hair and skin. And no, you don’t really need to mix it with other oils to use it. Almond oil can be directly applied to face, body and hair.

Here are 10 amazing reasons to start including almond oil in your daily skincare and haircare regime!

 

1. Nourishes deeply & improves skin tone

Almond oil is an emollient (having the quality of softening & soothing the skin) and naturally antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. This makes it ideal to improve both complexion and skin tone, giving you a moisturized, glowing radiance. So, you can use it not just for your face, but also your entire body!

 

2. Helps fight against dandruff

Guess how? With its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, of course! Almond oil helps treat and protect against scalp infections and dandruff, while moisturizing and soothing out the dryness.

 

3. Protects against free radical damage

First off, what exactly is free radical damage?

When our body’s oxygen atoms split, they become free radicals. This process is called oxidation. While this is a normally occurring process, increased oxidation can lead to increased free radicals, that can break down our skin’s DNA. This damage can start appearing on our skin in the form of blemishes, wrinkles, dark spots, dine lines and saggy skin.

What causes free radicals and oxidative stress? Age, exposure to toxic chemicals, pollution and the biggest reason - UV radiation.

Almond oil being abundant Vitamin E and antioxidants (that reduce oxidative stress) help reverse the damage.

 

4. Promotes hair growth & repairs damage

Being rich in Biotin (Vitamin B7), almond oil helps stimulate keratin (a fibrous protein in hair) production, thereby repairing, strengthening and protecting hair against thinning and promoting hair growth.

 

5. Reduces acne

If you’re looking to reduce acne, almond oil is among the best oils to do so! Almond oil has fatty acids that help dissolve the excess oil on skin. The retinoids (a group of compounds that have effects similar to those of Vitamin A) in almond oil also help reduce the appearance of acne and improve cell turnover (the constant shedding of dead skin cells and subsequent replacement with new cells). Try dabbing some almond oil on clean skin before bed. Leave it overnight.

 

6. Moisturizes & conditions hair

Just as almond oil is amazing for moisturizing skin, it is just as great at moisturizing and condition hair! Super- soft and smooth hair, here we come!

 

7. Reduces dark circles & signs of ageing

As you’ve already read, powered with Vitamin E, retinol, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and Vitamin K, almond oil is great for reducing signs of ageing like wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, blemishes as well as dark circles and under-eye puffiness. It is also least likely to cause irritations and keep the skin smooth and healthy.

 

8. Helps prevent split ends & frizz

With Omega-3 Fatty Acids and proteins, almond oil seals the hair cuticles to protect and improve texture, hydration, softness and strength.

 

9. Treats dryness

Almond oil has been used for centuries to treat dry skin and conditions like eczema and psoriasis. With its emollient properties and abundance of fatty acids and vitamins, it helps moisturize, soothe and protect skin while keeping it soft and supple.

 

11. Protects against breakage & hair fall

Once again, with its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, almond oil helps nourish and protect the scalp and the roots of your hair. Vitamins B and E in the oil improve blood circulation, all collectively helping prevent hair breakage and hair fall.

 

NOTE: Always do a patch test on your skin before usage. Apply a small amount of almond oil on your wrist and check for a few hours. If you’re allergic to nuts, avoid using almond oil for skin.

 

HOW TO USE ALMOND OIL FOR HAIR?

For scalp-care, gently massage on scalp, and leave it on for 30 mins. or overnight. Wash off with a gentle shampoo.

For split-ends and frizz, apply a few drops of almond oil on clean, damp hair along the length and ends. Make sure to let it absorb well. Leave it on.

 

HOW TO USE ALMOND OIL FOR SKIN?

For dry skin during cold climates, apply 2-3 drops on the neck and face and spread evenly with gentle circular massage movements. You can also mix 2 drops of almond oil with your regular moisturizer to use it for glowing, moisturized skin!

For a body massage before bath or before bed, take a few drops of the oil on your palm and apply evenly on skin. Massage till completely absorbed.

 

P.S. For best results, use goodnessme 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Virgin Almond Oil. With great purity comes great effectiveness! :)

 

Have a super nourishing time!
