What exactly is almond oil?
Refined vs. unrefined almond oil
If almond oil is cold-pressed, unrefined almond oil is produced. Raw almonds are pressed without chemical aids and the oil is extracted naturally . This has the advantage that significantly more nutrients are retained.
Warm-pressed almond oil is obtained through heat and chemical aids . As a result, refined almond oil can withstand significantly higher temperatures and has a longer shelf life . Also, refined almond oil is usually cheaper than unrefined.
However, unrefined oil is better for the skin, as the nutrients that are important and healthy for the skin are preserved much better.
Why is almond oil good for the skin?
Almond oil has been used for centuries to prevent the skin from aging. But skin diseases are also treated with almond oil. In traditional Chinese medicine, almond oil was and is used, among other things, to cure eczema.
Dry and very dry skin is moisturized again by the rich oil . Something that other oils and conventional creams often fail to do.
Almond oil also has an antibacterial effect . Despite its richness, it can therefore also be used to treat acne. This benefits people with strong combination skin, whose skin reacts to aggressive anti-acne products with irritation and dehydration.
What does almond oil do to the skin?
The richly contained vitamin E is a natural antioxidant that protects the skin from free radicals and thus slows down the aging process and the formation of wrinkles .
Dry lines, which many of us suffer from, disappear completely with regular use thanks to the healthy fatty acids in almond oil, as the skin is supplied with maximum moisture .
The antibacterial effect, which is also due to vitamin E, among other things, reduces inflammation and evens out the complexion. Inflammation and redness disappear . The complexion becomes more even and begins to radiate naturally .
The oil's delicate marzipan scent makes the application a sensory experience that goes beyond the skin benefits. The almond aroma lifts the mood and is therefore also suitable for soul care.
What vitamins does almond oil have?
Vitamin A is best known for improving eyesight. Few people know that the skin also benefits from beta carotene. Vitamin A has a positive effect on cell renewal and keeps the skin healthy, wrinkle-free and fresh .
Together with vitamin E, vitamin A forms a power duo against the aging process of the skin and can even reduce deep wrinkles and tighten the skin again .
Many people suffer from vitamin D deficiency, especially in central and northern European countries. And that has negative consequences. Vitamin D is considered the happiness hormone and is of central importance for our physical health and our mental well-being .
So it's no surprise that vitamin D also has a positive effect on the skin. The vitamin is normally absorbed through the skin through exposure to the sun. However, the use and intake of almond oil can also increase the vitamin D level in the body .
This not only ensures a healthy complexion, but also a strengthened cardiovascular system, healthy hair and mental balance.
Linoleic acid is certainly a household name for many who are concerned with beauty and skin health. Linoleic acid is often and willingly used in cosmetic products because it increases the skin's moisture content and also ensures that the skin can retain moisture for longer .
In addition, the skin becomes more resistant to infections and inflammations . Stressed skin that is already suffering from inflammation can be healed by linoleic acid.
Almond oil contains around 19% natural linoleic acid . A high concentration that has a very positive effect on skin health after a short time.
This is how almond oil is used
Many Feuerstein Essentials products contain almond oil . For example, the body cream can be applied in the morning or in the evening after the shower.
If you want to use pure almond oil, note the following:
- Before the oil is applied, the facial skin must be free of make-up. The oil only unfolds its full effect if the skin is free of impurities.
- How often and when the oil is used is a matter of taste , but it depends in particular on the conditions of your skin.
- Because the oil is rich, people whose skin is not extremely dry should only apply the oil overnight . The oil is also wonderful as an occasional night cure when the skin is dry and stressed, as is often the case in the cold winter months .
- Skin that is tense from heating air and cold can easily recover from the strains overnight with occasional almond oil treatments .
- The body also benefits from this unique oil. It is best to massage in the almond oil using circular movements . This is not only soothing and relaxing, but also promotes blood circulation and helps against cellulite.
So – why is almond oil good for the skin? It contains valuable vitamins for the skin and cares for the skin in a unique way.
