Almond oil is a highly effective way to combat the dry, flaky, itchy skin we experience this time of year.
This pale yellow oil is obtained from the dried kernal of sweet almonds. It is rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B5, D and E. This nourishing oil easily absorbs into the skin to soothe and soften the skin which is why many massage therapists use this hydrating oil to lubricate the skin during a massage session.
Apply almond oil around the eyes to reduce puffiness and help minimize fine lines and dark circles. It is excellent in creams, lotions and balms to relieve dry itchy skin.
