    How To Add Sweet Almond Oil To Your Beauty Routine

    Add Sweet Almond Oil To Your Beauty Routine

    I’m a big fan of coconut oil and use if for a variety of skincare, beauty and around the house purposes, but it’s not the only natural oil I use. Here are a few ways to use sweet almond oil.

    Skin Care

    If didn’t get enough sleep or my eyes are puffy I apply a bit of sweet almond oil under my eyes as it is a natural anti-inflammatory. I apply it to help fade scars and stretch marks and to strengthen my nails. When my skin is super dry, I apply over my night cream to seal in moisture. I don’t use if for full oil cleansing but I do use it to remove eye makeup and lipstick.

    Hair Care

    The skin on my scalp gets itchy and dry sometimes so I apply sweet almond oil, and it can also help to minimize flakes. I apply a bit to soften and add shine, tame flyaways throughout the day, and apply it directly under my hair care product when my hair feels dry. It can also help to restore damaged hair and can be a daily protective barrier.

    I also love this DIY hair mask:

    • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
    • 1 tablespoon sweet almond oil

    Apply for 40 minutes to clean hair, then rinse out. Apply a hair cap if you have one. If you have long or thick hair just double the ratio.

    Enjoy your new natural oil!
