I will start the topic with a short preface. At the weekend, my daughters and I went shopping and went to the store where goods for creativity were sold. The eldest daughter was given a certificate so that she could independently choose everything she needed for a certain amount.
We spent a lot of time in the store and when the amount of purchases exceeded the amount of money on the certificate by 2 times, I realized that I had to run out of there, otherwise I would not buy myself boots.
Running past the rack with oils, I lingered for a second and literally without looking, I put almond oil in the basket (I do not know what cosmetics do in the creative department).
Only at home I figured out what a wonderful gift I made myself! The oil turned out to be very useful for my skin, dry and tortured by cold wind. Yes, and I found it for nails. In general, I do not get tired of pleading myself. I will share with you the recipes that I have already tried on myself.
It turns out that almond oil is very useful for the skin and can be used for cosmetic purposes and spread literally from head to toe.
True, I was counting on the fact that this tool would be suitable for an aroma lamp, but it absolutely does not smell, which even disappointed me a little. Well, okay, but it has a tonic, moisturizing, regenerating and rejuvenating effect.
Especially recommended oil for those whose skin is dry, cracked, scaly, in general, is in terrible condition. In addition, the tool will be useful for eyebrows and eyelashes, as well as nails. Last, again, I was pleased, because nails and teeth are my pain. You can not smear the teeth, so at least treat your nails. 🙂
Recipes and know-how
I wandered around blogging a bit and looked at how other girls use natural oils. I learned a lot of useful information and now I hasten to share it with readers of Alimero.
For the face almond oil is still fatty, but it can be used as an emollient. What am I doing. My morning usually passes at home, respectively, I put on makeup for dinner. I wash my face, moisten a cotton swab with oil and selectively put it on my face: under the eyes, on the cheeks and a little on the forehead. There my skin is dry. Then with my fingertips I spend a little massage and leave my face alone. For dinner, I wash and apply ordinary cream.
The skin after the procedure becomes soft, tender, the irritation disappears. Only a couple of days passed the peeling on the cheeks! And they say that it helps against wrinkles. We’ll see!
I grease my hands with almond oil, almost to the elbow. In winter, the skin on them is especially dry. And without fail, I rub the product into each nail. After that, the nails become shiny and beautiful. I also read about how you can combine household chores and spa procedures. I grease my hands with oil and put on household gloves. So I kill 2 birds with one stone: I protect the skin of my hands from household chemicals and allow the product to be absorbed normally.
Before bed, I use almond oil and for the feet. I just grease them with a tool and put on cotton socks. Then you can not be afraid to stain the floor and bedding, and the oil is better absorbed.
They say that almond oil can be used for hair, but I have not tried it yet 🙂
I would be glad if you share your recipes!
