Another natural favorite: Almond Oil!

Labels: , , , ,

Skincare

Almond Oil (or "Sweet Almond Oil") is very lightweight but intensely moisturizing. This does not feel sticky or tacky at all, only slick to the touch. The oil apparently nourishes your skin without clogging pores. It has no real scent, and it's fantastic around your eyes or on chapped lips. Various sources say that it is an excellent eye makeup remover and general moisturizer. And, it's great for diminishing black circles and crow's feet, so I've read.

Almond Oil is really easy to find too! You can get it at most grocery or natural food stores :) I used to use this as part of the Oil Cleansing Method (along with Castor and Grapeseed Oils)... but now I just put a little Almond oil on a cotton ball, and go over dry areas with it to soften and remove dead skin, like a toner almost. It soaks in fast, so your skin won't feel oily or greasy for more than a second.

Obviously, if you are allergic to nuts, it's probably not a good idea to use Almond Oil. Otherwise, pick up a bottle ASAP and start enjoying the amazing skincare benefits of natural products like this one!

Yup, you're right almond oil is a beauty must-have. Very nourishing and highly emollient. By the way, it was one of Cleopatra's beauty staples. That's beauty history lesson for today :)))
