What are the Benefits of Almond Oil? Most of us remember those days when our mothers used to make us eat almonds every day, saying, that it’ll sharpen our brains and make us genius.  My mother did the same with me too! Not only were those daily doses of almonds healthy for my brain, but also for my skin.  And later when I got to know about the plethora of benefits almond and its oil holds, did I realize how correct my mother was.

Here are some of the beauty benefits of Almond Oil. Almond Oil is used as a beauty aid in many cosmetics. It is loaded with vitamins like A, B and E. You can apply it directly too.

This lotion is among the best ones I have used so far. It is easy to apply and lasts up for several hours. The lotion gets easily absorbed into the skin once you massage it. Moreover, it does not leave any greasy or oily residue. The best thing about this lotion is its fragrance. It is a soft and mild coconut smell infused with white orchid, giving you fresh vibes all through the day. If you have an extremely dry skin, then apply this lotion frequently for supple skin.

The lotion is lightweight in texture. It is a bit runny and of a thinner consistency compared to the hand lotions I have used before. Yet it is easy to apply, leaving my hands and body smooth for several hours.
