For face, hair and nails: using almond oil as a skin care product

Almond oil renews the skin, makes hair stronger, gives nails a healthy look... and more.

Almond oil is widely used in cooking, but it can also be an excellent beauty product. This oil with a subtle aroma significantly improves the condition of the skin, hair and nail structure. Let's take a closer look at its properties aimed at beauty:

Skin hydration

Almond oil has pronounced moisturizing properties. It helps soften the skin of the face and restore its moisture balance, making it softer and smoother.

Skin nutrition

Rich in vitamins and nutrients, almond oil helps nourish the skin, helping to restore its healthy appearance and even out the complexion.

The oil can be used to strengthen hair, prevent breakage and split ends. Regular scalp massage with almond oil helps improve blood circulation in the scalp. Apply the oil to the scalp 30 minutes before washing and rub in gently with massage movements.

Nail and cuticle care


Almond oil nourishes the nail plate, making nails stronger and healthier. It also moisturizes the cuticle and softens it. When the cuticle is soft, it is much easier to push it back with an orange stick and remove it painlessly.

Makeup removal

Almond oil can be used to remove makeup, including waterproof makeup, without further irritating the skin. Apply the oil to a cotton pad and wipe your face, then wash your face with your usual product. You will notice that after such makeup removal there is not a trace of makeup left on your face, and to remove it you don’t even need to make an effort or intensively rub the skin.

Softness and shine of hair
