Almond Oil Sweet
Almond Oil is an excellent emollient and is known for its ability to soften and re-condition the skin. It is rich in proteins, Olein Glyceride Linoleic Acid, and Vitamin D, and is considered extremely nourishing to the skin through moisturisation - particularly when used regularly.
It can also be used to soothe dry and chapped skin. Being non-comedogenic, anti-bacterial, and non-greasy, this medium-light lubricant has a quick absorption rate that is ideal for use in facial care, massages, and on skin that is sensitive or acne-prone.
Almond Oil also contains Vitamins A and E and several powerful antioxidants and soft skin. The vitamins also provide the healing benefits needed to remove dark under-eye circles and can reverse the damage of UV rays.
How to use this item:
1. As a makeup remover
Apply a small amount into your palm and using your fingertips, gently apply the oil to the areas where you want to remove makeup. Afterwards, use cotton balls or warm water to remove the oil. Follow this up by washing your face with your favourite cleanser.
2. As a cleanser
Almond oil is a carrier oil, meaning it has the ability to carry other essential oils more deeply into the skin. You can mix almond oil with an essential oil that’s known to benefit the skin, like lavender, rose geranium, or lemon oil. Apply the oil mixture to damp skin and rinse with warm water. Due to the fact it is an oil cleanser, you may need to rinse twice to remove any residue.
3. As a moisturiser
Gently pat a small amount of almond oil onto your face with your fingertips, and let it absorb into your skin. You don’t need to rinse this off
