Almond Body Care
Protection for sensitive skin to restore natural beauty
If your skin becomes dry, red or itchy after using certain soaps or skincare products, you are not alone. As many as one in two people are estimated to suffer with sensitive skin conditions and with increased use of synthetic ingredients in personal care products this level is set to rise.
Experts believe that in some cases, skin sensitivity in adulthood may be a relic of allergic or atopic eczema in childhood – a condition that often vanishes as children get older, but which may leave underlying vulnerabilities in the skin structure. We also know that hormone fluctuation and stress, both emotional and environmental (from harsh weather for instance), can temporarily upset your skin.
This type of skin tends to be quite dry, but responds to the nourishment offered by rich emollients (moisturising ingredients that help lock in moisture). At the same time, being particularly susceptible to chemical irritants, sensitive skin needs gentle care and the most natural of skin care regimes.
Go nuts for your skin
If you have sensitive skin, then using simple and pure natural skin care products is important and one ingredient that will be vital to your skin is almonds! Well, sweet almond oil to be exact.
Almonds have earned celebrity status in the culinary and nutrition worlds. Often overlooked, however, is their equally beneficial use in skin care. In actual fact the almond ranks among the most valuable and skin-healthy oils on the planet.
The very fine, light and non-irritating kernel oil from the beautiful almond plant protects and cares for the most sensitive skin. In nature, almonds develop in a nurturing haven, with the inner
nut safely nestled inside a shell. Under this protection, the nut cultivates its rich composition of omega-6 essential fatty acids. These key fatty acids, along with the naturally occurring antioxidant vitamin E in almond oil, improve your skin’s protective barrier function and keep it smooth, supple and protected from irritation. It is ideal for calming and soothing allergy-prone, sensitive, inflamed and dry skin.
