Almond oil is acquired from the almond seed, which contains protein, vitamin E and B vitamins, as well as essential minerals, healthy fats and protein. The nutritional content of almond oil has made it a dietary source of these ingredients, but the benefits of almond oil go beyond the inside of the body. Some of the benefits of Almond oil is as follows:

  • Sun Protector: applying almond oil to your skin not only protects you from the sun’s harmful rays, but it also slows down the skin’s aging process.
  • Skin Rejuvenator: almond oil has emollient properties, which gives it the ability to rejuvenate and soften the skin, thereby evening out the skin tone and improving the complexion. Almond oil has been shown to reduce scarring that occurs with surgery and should be considered as a possible post-operative treatment
  • Reduces Skin irritation: Skin irritation, such as itching and swelling, can also be reduced with almond oil. There are many skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema, that cause inflammation of the skin, as well as redness and an itchy rash. Topical application of almond oil can temporarily relieve the inflammation and the irritation associated with such conditions.
  • Long and Healthy Hair: Almond oil is a rich source of magnesium which is used in a variety of hair products. Deficiency of magnesium can result in heavy hair fall. Apply almond oil once or twice a week to moisturize the scalp. This reduces hair fall and improves hair quality.
  • Goodbye to Split Ends: A mixture of almond, castor and olive oil in equal proportions massaged into the hair will get rid of split ends.
  • Reduces Scalp Inflammation: Our scalp is exposed to dust, heat, pollution, chemical styling products which leads to inflammation. And ignorance of this problem can lead to dandruff, scalp infections and hair fall. Almond oil should be regularly used on the scalp to reduce the inflammation. Due to its high content of fatty acids, it moisturizes and softens the scalp tissues and improves the blood circulation, which helps in reducing the inflammation.
