We’ve deep-dived into the origins of almond oil, the many ways it can improve skin health and the Burt’s Bees products you need to be adding into your skincare routine to reap the benefits. 

What is almond oil?

Almond oil is extracted by pressing ripe almonds with minimal heat. For centuries, almond oil has been used to soothe skin and improve skin tone. It’s highly emollient, so it helps to balance the absorption of moisture and water loss and soaks into the skin quickly when used as a moisturiser, encouraging a refreshed and glowy complexion. 

Benefits of almond oil

1) It soothes dryness

Almond oil helps to soothe skin from dryness and irritation, with its fatty acid content quickly restoring skin to its full hydration, leaving it feeling soft and supple. It has antioxidant properties that help to protect against damage from free radicals and strengthen the skin’s natural barrier.
