Autumn can hit our skin hard. When the heating is up and the humidity is low, our skin can become unbalanced and in need of some extra nourishment. Don’t fear- almond oil is here. This humble oil softens the skin, is non-greasy, and is super-nutritious. High in essential vitamins and anti-oxidants, almond oil is the key to naturally soft and smooth skin, and it is for this reason that we use it in STEAMCREAM®. Discover our top 5 reasons to incorporate amazing almond oil into your skincare routine:
Rich in vitamins A, B & E
We all know that vitamins are good for you, but did you know that vitamins have their place in skincare too? Vitamin E helps to protect the skin from environmental pollution, has brilliant skin-healing properties and helps to keep the skin looking plump and nourished. Vitamin B is incredibly soothing, helping to reduce any redness and skin irritation, whilst vitamin A has some incredible anti-wrinkle properties.
Helps to rejuvenate skin
Not only does almond oil help to nourish skin, making it softer and smoother, but massaging it into your skin can help to invigorate the skin, promoting cell renewal and rejuvenation.
Promotes healthy and strong nails
Almond oil can be used on nails to help to keep nails strong, healthy looking, and less prone to breaking. Simply use as a replacement for cuticle oil and massage onto the nails daily for healthy looking stronger nails.
Rich in anti-oxidants
Vitamins A and E are also antioxidants, which act to protect the body from the harmful effects of free radicals on your body- bringing an abundance of health benefits.
High in omega 3 fatty acids
Using almond oil on your skin and hair has internal and external health benefits. What you put on your skin is as important as what you eat, as it sinks straight into your blood stream. Just as when you eat almonds, when you use sweet almond oil on your skin your body will absorb the benefits of the minerals, vitamins, and proteins found in the oil. Almond oil is high in Omega 3- 6 and 9 fatty acids.
