Just apply it in the same way you would a normal makeup remover, and let it sit for a while before cleaning it off.
Lastly, Sweet Almond Oil can be made into a natural face scrub. By adding a little bit of fine sugar (avoid sea salts as it may be too coarse for your skin) into the oil, it becomes an exfoliating cleanser!
2) Smooth, Flawless Skin

Sweet Almond Oil also contains Vitamin E, which is a good antioxidant to keep your skin safe from harmful UV rays and oxidative stress!

4) Rashes, Eczema and Psoriasis
The common thing about these skin problems is that they cause the skin to become dry and itchy.

Sweet Almond Oil can be used for marks caused by friction, for example, inflammation from the friction of infants wearing diapers. Just apply the oil on the skin, and let it absorb completely.
5) Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Smooth and supple skin is a sign of youth. These days, both men and women sought skin products that help them maintain, or even improve the condition of the skin. The reason why the skin becomes slack and wrinkles start to form is mainly because a) the skin is losing its moisture, and b) the collagen under the skin is damaged. While there are many products that help to repair collagen and retain moisture in the skin, Sweet Almond Oil is the most natural and inexpensive product amongst all.
Firstly, Sweet Almond Oil contains Vitamin E, which has antioxidant properties that can repair some of the damage made to the collagen layer. The oil has a lot of proteins as well, which provides amino acids for the formation of new collagen. Also, the oil prevents loss of moisture from the skin, keeping the skin moisturised.
While there are many other good properties of Sweet Almond Oil, we believe that these reasons should be enough to encourage you to use it! After all, we use this oil in our products so it should be a good reason for you to use it too! Well, that is all we have for you, and we will see you in our next blog!
