As A Cure To Psoriasis And Eczema

Keeping your skin hydrated is the most important thing you must do for your skin. Psoriasis And Eczema are skin conditions that cause the skin to go red, inflamed, peeled, cracked, blistered, or pus-filled. Due to the antibacterial properties present in this oil, it will help treat all these problems and give instant results.

If you are suffering from any of the above-mentioned skin conditions, it is crucial to keep your skin hydrated. As almond oil is hypoallergenic it does exactly that. However, make sure that your almond oil is 100 % natural and does not contain any ingredients that will affect your skin in a bad way.

Honey And Milk Treatment

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of almonds
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp milk

Process:

  1. Take a blender and add one cup of almond to it.
  2. Blend it to make a powder-like consistency.
  3. To this, add 2 tbsp honey and 2 tbsp milk.
  4. Mix well. Make sure there are no lumps in it.
  5. Apply this onto affected area and  massage well for 15 minutes
  6. Then, wash it using cold water.
  7. Pat it dry.

Substitute For Hand And Foot Cream

While you can spend on the beautiful looking body lotion bottles or something that smells really good, you can always opt for hand and foot cream that you can buy from commercial brands. However, what if you want something natural? Almond oil is the best pick when it comes to substituting hand or foot creams that come packed with chemicals.

Almond oil is very lightweight and comparatively less greasy when compared to other heavy oils like coconut or castor. It is definitely the most inexpensive substitute compared to the hand cream available at those expensive looking stores. It smoothens the skin and nourishes it as it has the capability to be absorbed by the skin real quick. Almond oil also has the powers to compensate for the fragrance of expensive creams while fighting the impurities.

Cracked heels

For Cracked Heels

Ingredients:

  • Few drops of almond oil
  • 1 Pumice stone

Process:

  1. Take a pumice stone and exfoliate your water-soaked heels.
  2. Then use some almond oil and apply it onto the exfoliated skin.
  3. This process will add moisture to your heels making them soft and attractive.
  4. Wear socks on your treated heels and sleep on it.
  5. Repeat this process 2-3 times a week to get the best results.

Pumice stone, which is known to be one of the best exfoliators for the entire body can help in removing the dead skin out of your cracked heel to prepare it for further nourishment using almond oil. Make sure you soak your pumice stone in water as using it dry can cause irritation and in some cases bleeding too.

Almond oil that comes with skin-softening properties will leave you ‘footwear ready’, meaning you won’t hesitate to pick up whatever footwear you wish to wear the next time.

An Ideal Makeup Remover

Makeup removers contain alcohol and while it can remove makeup quite easily, it can leave the skin badly affected and dry. Almond oil ensures that it opens all pores which remove all kind of traces from the skin and face. And because this will prevent acne it is beneficial for all skin types as well.

  1. Great post on almond oil. Almond oil is a fantastic ingredient with tons of benefits for the body. I use it almost daily for my hair. I knew it was good for skin too but not this good. Looks like now I’ll have to buy two bottles of almond oil from now on.

  2. What a fantastic oil is almond oil. Everybody should have it in their homes as it can be used to remedy a variety of problems and issues with the body. It is great for skin, it is great for hair, what is it not good for??

  3. Hey, I am having very bad dry skin. many cracks and stuff are showing and it just does not look good. I do moisturize everyday but still it does not get me through the day. Will using almond oil help in this regard. Is it good for moisturizing the skin?

  4. Yes, almond oil is very good for the skin and has moisturizing properties for it. It is also very light and does not make your skin feel oily or greasy. You can massage a little bit of almond oil on your skin to nourish it and moisturize it.

  5. Hey girls, great post on almond oil. I have a question, I have quite a dry and sensitive skin. Can I use almond oil on my skin every day? I want to use it to massage my skin to nourish and hydrate it. Thanks for any help you gals can provide.

  6. I would think that you can. Almond oil is very gentle and nice on the skin so I would not worry about any side effects or things like that. I also have sensitive skin and I use it quite a lot, though I don’t know about every day. You can try it out and see how it goes.

  7. Thanks for the input. I think I am going to try it out. I already tried it out once on my skin, to do a patch test of sort and it was completely fine. Not sure my skin got any benefits though, but it was the first time so.. we’ll see. I’ll share my results with you gals. See ya.

  8. Alright. great. Please do share your experiences, it helps out other people a lot. Cheers and all the best.

  9. I love using sweet almond oil on my body! It is so calming and soothing cuz of its awesome smell and makes my skin look so much better. I have not tried using it on my face, but now I certainly will.

  10. Hi thx a bunch for this awesome post on almond oil. Can I use almond oil as a facial wash. Pls let me know. thx again

  11. Yes, of course! So what i always do is remove makeup with a wipe and then wash my face with water. after that i apply almond oil to it and rub it on my skin then let it sit for a bit and wash of the excess. It makes my skin feel really good. Hope this helped.

  12. It depends on you and the type of skin you have. But I would say that it generally takes about 3 weeks to show noticeable improvements.

  13. Hi, I recently bought sweet almond oil for my hair (trying to grow it out). I recently started using it on my face also, and it is actually wonderful! Thanks for the great post! Almond oil contains tons of Omega-3s which helps the skin pores to expel out junk.

  14. Hey people, i have one more tip for you. You should try consuming one tablespoon of sweet almond oil every day. I do it and it helps out my skin a lot, even the extremities like ankles, fingers, and toes. Within a month, my skin was no longer dry and scaly. and I am 62 years old. So, I would say everyone should try it out at least. Good bye and I wish you good health

  15. Almond oil is more appropriate for dry skin types but may clog the pores due to its high caprylic/capric acid content which itself has a comedogenic rating of 2. It has a lower comedogenic rating that coconut oil because it has had its long-chain triglycerides removed which makes it less oily.

  16. Will using almond oil increase the growth of hair on my face?? because I do not want that

  17. Can I use almond oil to help heal my acne scars. My face is so pockmarked with them it is quite embarrassing for me. Thanks for the great and informative post anyway

  18. Yes, you can, and it also helps fight acne too! I started using almond oil because my skin was so dry but also somehow oily and i also had a lot of acne. But Then i started with almond oil on my skin and it has cleared up so much, it amazing. I won’t be able to go back now.

  19. Almond oil is one of the best oil for the health of the skin. I massage my skin with it pretty much every day and it gives me soft and glowing skin. I also do not have to face a lot of skin issues, I have noticed, as I had to before when I did not start using almond oil. Now, I can’t even think about going back, it has become a fixture in my life and I do need it. I would and do suggest almond oil to everyone, it will change your life (and your skin. and your hair) for the better so please do try it out.

  20. Hey nice post on almond oil benefits for skin. Great work keep it up. I wanted to know if plain almond oil has the same effects as sweet almond oil or are there any difference between them that we should know?

  21. Hi Bernadette, that’s a good question. Sweet almond oil and regular almond oil are practically the same thing. There is a different almond oil which is called bitter almond oil. As the name suggests, it is made from bitter almonds. It is much more fragrant and certainly not the same thing as sweet almond oil.

  22. Hey queens, i have a great tip for you gals. You should consider mixing some almond oil to your body cream and stuff like that. It works really well and will enhance your cream with the benefits which almond oil provides. And as you gals can see from the post, it has so many benefits for the skin it’s ridiculous. So, yeah, just mix some almond oil in your body creams etc and reap its skin benefits. Lots of love, Alisha.

  23. When is the best time I should apply almond oil to my face. I am looking to use small amounts of almond oil directly to massage onto my face and skin. I have quite dry skin and dark circles too so I think almond oil will be great for my face and skin. any help pls?

  24. I have found that I get the best results with almond oil when I use it on clean, washed skin or face, and that goes for any other skin care products or ingredients too. So, I would say using it after you take a shower is the best time. Or at least after washing your face. Hope this helped.

  25. Almond oil can be found in Natural foods stores, vitamin shoppes, or tons of online stores too. It is not hard to find it honestly.

  26. Hey guys, congratulations on a terrific and educational post on almond oil uses for the skin. This is really very useful. I have a question though. Can we use bitter almond oil too for all these uses or is this for sweet almond oil only. Thank you once again and keep it up please.

  27. No, you actually should not use bitter almond oil for these uses. The bitter almond oil is not used in skin care at all because it does not have the same benefits for skin as the sweet one has. So, it is definitely better to use the sweet almond oil. I have a lot of acne scars and sweet almond oil helped me clear them in 3-4 weeks.

  28. yes, you can. It works brilliantly on the skin. First, wash your face gently. Then, apply around 10 drops and massage it all over you skin in gentle circular massaging motions. Then when your face starts feeling warm just stop and then press your hands on your face. it’s really useful to treat skin issues and make it feel and look amazing. I’ve used it regularly and got rid of my acne and scars and pigmentation in less than a month. But you should remember one thing- make sure that you get sweet almond oil and organic variety too, if it’s possible.

  29. Yes, you can leave it one overnight without any problems. I do too and I also have oily skin.

  30. Hey guys, great post on almond oil. I am 15 years old. Can I also use almond oil on my skin?? pls reply

  31. How can I use almond oil to treat black areas around my eyes?? any help is greatly appreciated.

  32. Apply some sweet almond oil on the black/dark areas around your eyes gently using a cotton ball. Leave it overnight so that your skin can fully absorb it. You’ll notice great results in about 2 weeks if you do it daily. Hope this was of some help!

  33. Hello, my skin is quite dark and pigmented too. I am also noticing dark spots and blemishes on it too. I want to get a fairer and glowing skin. But the issue is I also have very oily skin which causes many problems to me. I get acne and breakouts a lot which lead to many of the spots and blemishes. Can I use almond oil to some of my benefit? Will it go okay with oily skin or not? I have heard that it is okay for oily skin but I am not sure. Please I need some help. Thank you.

  34. Almond oil is not too oily on the skin so it is pretty good for oily skin so you need not worry about that part. Also, Almond oil is great for skin whitening. It will help lighten up your skin while also nourishing it and moisturizing it. Your skin will feel amazing after a while you have used almond oil. It makes my skin really smooth and bright.

  35. Good stuff! Sweet Almond oil is amazing, my grandma used to apply it onto my skin when I was little and I picked it back up a few years ago and the results have been awesome! I don’t know why I gave it up, maybe I was just a kid who didn’t know anything, like any kid 😀 . Now, it is in my daily life. I massage both my skin and hair with and I love the way it makes my skin feel. Honestly, I feel that my skin is much more even toned, soft and supple than it ever was before. I do use some other skin care stuff obviously but almond oil is a major part and I know it is amazing. I would suggest everyone to at least try it out for a month. You will also fall in love with it. Good luck!

  36. Hey friends. I see that almond oil is fantastic for the skin but I have very problem skin. It is really oily and acne prone. My pores get clogged easily and cause blackheads and whiteheads so much it is really annoying. So, I wanted to ask if using almond oil on my skin will clog up my pores even more? cause if that happens my skin will be pockmarked with pimples and nobody wants that, I’m sure.

  37. Hi Elsa, Almond oil is great for oily skin and it won’t clog up you pores. You pores get clogged due to overproduction of sebum which is the natural oil which your skin produces. Some people have oily skin because their skin produces extra sebum which can clog up the pores easily and make it much prone to acne, breakouts and a host of other issues. This leads to debris and dead skin cells being collected in your skin and pores which clogs them up. However, almond oil contains fatty acids in it which in fact dissolve the sebum produced by the skin. Hence, it is great for oily skin, it will make your skin cleaner and help prevent acne and breakouts. Hope this helped.

  38. Thanks a bunch, Tiffany. That was of great help! You cleared up everything I wanted to know, just like how I am now going to use Almond oil to clear up my skin :D. Thanks again and I wish you the best.

  39. Great post on almond oil. It is a terrific oil for the skin and I love it. try it out guys you won’t be disappointed.

  40. Hi team Glowpink. Amazing work like always. Almond oil is one of the best oils in the world and my favorite. It is quite common is such a great thing as people all over the world can get it at relatively economical rates. Keep spreading the word about this awesome oil although I am not sure that is needed as it seems like everybody already love it and are aware of it at least.

  41. Can I use almond oil as a moisturizer for my face and skin?? Can I mix a few drops of it in my moisturizer or cream, will that be useful?? btw nice post, its so detailed and expansive. Keep up the good work.

  42. You can certainly use almond oil as a moisturizer. It gets into the skin quickly and effectively and is a great moisturizer for the skin. You can use it in a myriad of ways- you can mix it with your skin care products as you said, use it mixed with essential oils as it is a fantastic carrier. Or , of course, use it in any one of the like hundred home remedies given in this post. All the best.
