Almonds, almonds, almonds, or at least almond milk. Now, it’s all about almond oil. While almond milk has been the alternative to milk that doesn’t use soy or rice, almond oil has found its way into soaps, lotions, facial scrubs, and hair treatments. Almond oil is the big
it thing for beauty and other products. The truth is that almond oil products have been around since before we really remember. It just hasn’t been as publicized or trendy until now.
Dr Soheil Simzar, a Santa Monica dermatologist at Ava MD has seen many benefits, and she says,
Almond oil, coconut oil, and essential oils are hot topics because they are known to be multi-tasking beauty products and great for most skin types. Almond oil is hydrating and won’t clog pores. It works great as makeup remover, and the monounsaturated fats in the oil keep cell membranes healthy, reducing the appearance of aging.
Experts believe that literally anybody could benefit from almond oil, even if you have sensitive skin. Almond oil provides a rich source of magnesium, which is common in hair products, and it can help you to repair split ends and make your hair shinier.
Almond oil is natural, not synthetic.
Synthetic ingredients may cause irritation to the skin and make matters worse. It’s always better to use Mother Nature’s ingredients.
Simzar recommends a small dime-sized amount of organic almond oil directly to your skin before you go to bed at night after washing your skin. It will feel a bit greasy at first, but your pores open up at night, and therefore, they can better take in things like almond oil without clogging the pores. It can really soak in for long term benefits.You can also try a tablespoon for your dry split ends, leave it overnight, and rinse in the morning.
