How to Use Almond Oil on Skin

Save

Sweet almond oil is a popular ingredient in many skin-care and hair-care products. When massaged into the body, it makes skin supple, silky and soft. Almond oil has also been used to diminish the appearance of scars, wrinkles and stretch marks, and is often used as a remedy for dry, flaky skin.

How to Use Almond Oil on Skin

Pour a few drops of almond oil into your hand. Rub your palms together.

Massage the oil on any skin that's dry, chapped, irritated or flaky. Concentrate on rough spots like knees and elbows. Almond oil is not greasy and will absorb easily.

Dab a small amount of almond oil on your undereye circles to remove dark shadows and ease puffiness.

Apply the almond oil onto your face to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. The fatty acids in the oil help to plump up wrinkles with regular use.

Rub a generous amount of almond oil on your feet to soften rough heels and callouses.

Tips & Warnings

  • For stretch marks and scars, massage the almond oil deeply into the affected areas while the marks are still relatively new.
  • Make sure you use sweet almond oil and not bitter almond oil. Bitter almond oil contains amygdalin, a type of cyanide.
