As ancient cultures used almond oil as a medicine to treat dry skin and hypertrophic (a big word for white and raised) scars and general skin rejuvenation. Almond oil is rich in vitamin D, vitamin E (Tocopherol) and various minerals that help soothe the skin from irritation, protect the skin from UV radiation damage and restore the skin’s moisture barrier. More than soothing dry skin, almond oil can improve complexion and skin tone. It’s highly emollient, which means it helps to balance the absorption of moisture and water loss. Because it is antibacterial and full of vitamin A, almond oil can be used to treat acne. Its vitamin E concentration can also help heal sun damage, reduce the signs of ageing, and fade scars.
