Almonds: Your Skin and Hair Will Thank you
Winter is upon us, and that with it, comes dry skin season. This is especially poignant here in Colorado.
It’s noteworthy too that November is recognized as National Healthy Skin Month, as designated by the American Academy of Dermatology. Given these, we wanted to highlight the significance of natural resources like water and almonds.
According to WebMD, the skin is the largest organ of the body, with a total area of about 20 square feet.
It is recommended that we all drink eight glasses of water a day. Almonds can be a perfect complement to water hydration. Legend has it that the Egyptian Queen, Cleopatra, who was famous for her beautiful skin, hair and body, is also said to have included almonds in both her diet and skin care regime.
Almonds are rich in vitamin-E, which nourishes and softens the skin when applied daily. Applying almond oil or its milk also is beneficial as it protects the skin from damage caused by sun exposure as well.
Almonds are a major part of the ingredients in most natural skin products because they contain flavonoids that are similarly found in green tea and broccoli. These components nourish and are a major anti-ageing property for your skin.
