(By Chantelle Bester) Natural vegetable oils like almond oil can often replace many conventional cosmetics – here are a few uses.
- Almond oil makes a great face cleanser and make-up remover. Apply it to your skin with your fingertips or with a cotton pad, work it in for a couple of seconds and rinse with the help of a facecloth.
- Due to its easily absorbed texture, almond oil is a good treatment for the skin around the eyes – simply dab it onto the eye area at night. Many also advocate using it to combat dark under-eye circles.
- Almond oil can replace leave-in conditioner to give your hair shine and make it more manageable. Warm a little bit of oil between your palms and work it through damp hair.
