It is extremely nutritious, because of its rich vitamin E, protein and magnesium content. Due to its antioxidant properties, it has age control benefits too and helps to delay the manifestation of ageing signs on the skin. Because of its properties, it is also very nourishing for the skin and can be used in various forms. Almonds, because of their several beneficial properties are used as an ingredient for many skin care formulations such as nourishing creams, eye creams, scrubs, almond face packs, and massage oils.
One of the best uses of almonds in skin care is as an exfoliator, or scrub, helping to remove dead skin cells and thus both refining and cleansing the skin. Exfoliation is a powerful deep pore cleansing procedure too. It is done with scrubs.
Almond meal makes an excellent scrub. To make almond meal, pour hot water on the almonds and allow them to soak till the skin comes off. Dry them thoroughly. This can be done in an oven or by keeping them in the sun for few days. Now grind the dried almonds into a powder and keep it in a jar.
