Almond oil is a mild, non-drying, hypoallergenic oil which can be used on sensitive skin or dry acne prone skin due to its emollient properties. It helps in reducing itching, cracking, irritation and inflammation, and it is also softened, soothes, and smoothes dry skin. Almond oil is very lubricating and lingers on the skin, making it good for massage and protecting the surface of the skin. It protects skin against UV radiation damage and keeps skin soft and supple. It’s great for regenerating skin cells because it penetrates damaged cells and softens them allowing for better hydration.
