HOW TO USE SWEET ALMOND OIL?
To take care of dry skin
Sweet almond oil is the ally of dry, fragile and irritated skin. It soothes, deeply moisturizes, strengthens the hydrolipidic film, protects against external aggressions and restores elasticity to the skin. Its anti-inflammatory and calming virtues also allow it to soothe the skin in case of eczema on the face.
After your beauty routine, warm a few drops of sweet almond oil between your hands and apply it to your face. For very dry skin, it is possible to apply it in a slightly thicker layer and leave it on overnight.
To moisturize the body
Sweet almond oil is finally used to moisturize the face as well as the body. You can add a few drops to your body lotion or massage yourself directly with the oil. If you suffer from irritations, eczema patches on the body or sunburn, apply a little oil to the affected area to reduce the feeling of discomfort.
To make a homemade scrub
Almond oil can be used to make a homemade body scrub. Its softening and moisturizing properties make it an ideal exfoliating base. The recipe is very simple: mix a little oil with sugar, about 4 tablespoons of each. It is preferable to choose cane sugar because the grains are a little larger and will be more effective on the skin. You can also replace the sugar with coffee grounds. This scrub leaves your skin soft, moisturized and free of dead skin!
To prevent stretch marks
During adolescence, pregnancy or following a weight gain, the skin undergoes some changes and tries to continuously adapt to these new forms. It stretches, relaxes, sometimes loses its elasticity and can end up forming red, purple or whitish cracks. If stretch marks are a worry, sweet almond oil is the perfect potion to prevent them. Apply it by massaging in a circular motion on the affected areas (stomach, thighs, chest).
To reduce scars
Thanks to its high concentration of vitamin E, sweet almond oil accelerates cell regeneration. Its use is ideal for reducing scars and repairing the skin little by little. Apply a little oil on the scar and massage deeply to stimulate the cells and make the material penetrate.
To soothe babies' skin
Known for its softness, sweet almond oil is often recommended for the most fragile skins such as those of babies. In case of temporary redness, it helps to calm irritations, nourish and soften the skin of infants. You can massage your baby with this oil with gentle gestures. However, ask your doctor's advice to make sure you are not allergic to nuts.
