    ways to use almond oil in spring

    Almond oil is light and non-irritating, making it a must-try oil for hair and skin during this changing phase of weather in the spring season. It is rich in Vitamin E that shields your skin from sun damage. Vitamin E also helps in the production of collagen, which helps tighten and smoothen skin. Take a look at how almond oil can be used in the spring season for skin and hair care:

    1. Acts As A Moisturiser


    Almond oil can be used as a moisturiser. Wash and pat dry your skin , take 3-4 drops of almond oil on your palm and using your fingertips, gently massage till it   gets absorbed. No rinsing is necessary if you're using it as a moisturiser. (Before using almond oil on the face, remember to do a patch test on your hand.)

    2. Controls Hair Loss

    Hair Loss

    Almond oil can strengthen hair follicles and reduce hair fall and split ends. Your hair will certainly get the nutrition it needs as it has  calcium, magnesium, and zinc. Apply warm almond oil to your scalp and massage gently. Leave it for 40-45 or overnight (whatever suits you) and wash it off with a mild shampoo. It will gradually help in reducing hair fall and will improve your hair texture.

Gently massage it on your scalp and later wash it off using a mild shampoo. Dandruff can be cleared up with routine massages with almond oil. This will not only make your hair smooth and soft but also in treating other scalp issues like dandruff, etc.
