Eating Almonds For A More Beautiful Skin


In the Victorian era, ladies pinned a sprig of almond blossom to their blouse to represent hope. In China, the almond is a symbol of both beauty and sadness. In cosmetics, almonds mean beautiful skin.

 

Natural, unsalted almonds are a tasty and nutritious snack with plenty of health benefits. Loaded with minerals, they are also among the healthiest of tree nuts.

Regular intake of almonds in your diet can enrich your digestive system, and will free you from respiratory disorders. Almonds can also increases your memory power, control the cholesterol levels, and protect you against diabetes, weight loss, and blood pressure. Almonds can be consumed directly without soaking the last night for additional benefits.

 

Now you might want to know what benefits almonds can bring to your skin. Here are some almonds skin benefits that you must know:

While almond oil is a popular natural skin treatment, almonds also have some powerful skin benefits when you eat them regularly.

1- Cleanse and Eliminate Toxins in Your Body

Almonds contain beneficial antioxidants which will actively cleanse and eliminate toxins and free radicals in your body. If you want to cleanse your skin pollution, you can eat this nut frequently. This is helpful because the antioxidant components in almonds will actively cleanse pollution in your body, making your skin smooth and glowing from inside.

2- Major Source of Vitamin E

Vitamin E is so beneficial for skin due to the way it protects the collagen and elastin proteins that ‘glue’ your skin cells together from free radical damage. Collagen and elastin are vital for firm and young-looking skin. The more they break down, the more tired and dry your skin will look, eventually leading to fine lines and wrinkles.

Eating almonds regularly can help provide protective vitamin E to your skin’s cells and keep it looking younger for longer. Perhaps think of a bag of them as a natural and tasty nutritional facelift 😉

3- Help Cure Acne, Pimples, Zits, Blackheads, and Whiteheads

One of almonds skin benefits will be useful for most acne sufferers because almonds can reduce the appearance of acne, along with blackheads and whiteheads.

When treated regularly with almonds oil, your acne will gradually disappear.If you have many pimples that are hard to eliminate, you can use almonds to cure your pimples.

If your pimple has left behind its scar, massage gently with almond oil over the scar to help lighten it. Another way to use it is by mixing almond oil, honey and lemon juice with some milk and applying on the scar. Use this for a week to make it fainter in appearance.

4- Reduces Tanning

Undue sun exposure can tan the skin and make it look darker than your complexion. To remove this layer of tan, make a paste by adding almond oil, honey, lemon juice and milk powder. Apply on the affected areas for about 20 minutes and use it weekly twice to see visible results. This will also help restore lost moisture of your skin.

5- Cure Constipation and Smooth Your Digestive Process

We know that digestive system is important for our skin health. Smooth digestive system will immediately cleanse the toxins from our body. When we have constipation problem, the entire digestive process would be disturbed. Almonds can help cure constipation and smooth your digestive process, making your skin glow healthier every day.

Many of the nutrients in almonds like oleic acid, vitamin E, copper, magnesium and manganese are also associated with healthy hair. Weight loss, good skin and better hair – almonds really do seem to be an exceptional food for improving your appearance. So what are you waiting for?

All New Self-Preserving Products from LUSH


Lush has always used natural preservatives like salt, honey and clay to keep its products fresh for longer. As a result, more than 70% of its range is entirely self-preserving – something not many other cosmetic companies could claim.

 

But that wasn’t enough, Lush has come up with an innovative way to re-balance its formulations, which means that the artificial preservatives can be removed from some of the products 
that you know and love, all without significantly altering the look, the feel, the price, or reducing the shelf life, and always with the freshest ingredients.

 

The original preserved versions will continue to be stocked, but Mask of Magnaminty, Ocean Salt, Dream Cream and Sympathy for the Skin are now available in self- preserving formulas – with lots more to come!

 

Mask of Magnaminty Self-Preserving

A multi-purpose mask with a mixture of gentle yet effective ingredients to clean, calm and clear the skin – now in a self-preserving formula.

Easily smoothed over the skin anywhere you like, this mask is made with peppermint oil to stimulate, marigold oil and chlorophyllin to treat the skin; evening primrose seeds and aduki beans to gently exfoliate as you remove it. There’s also mineral rich kaolin to nourish, antibacterial honey, and peppermint oil to stimulate the blood cells just under the surface of your skin to leave it looking bright and refreshed.

 

Ocean Salt Self-Preserving

Cleansing lime, coconut and sea salt scrub. Ocean Salt is like taking your face on a trip to the seaside for an invigorating splash in the water, then cleansing and refreshing it with lemon, grapefruit and lime juices. Fresh avocado moisturises and softens the skin, while violet leaf absolute calms and nurtures. Use it on oily skin every day and use it to refresh dry skin once a week.

 

Dream Cream Self-Preserving

A soothing and all-round dreamy hand and body lotion that’s suitable for everyone – now in a self-preserving formula.

This simple cream works like a dream on upset skin: cooling and soothing ingredients like oat milk, rose-water and chamomile blue oil calm down hot and itchy skin, as well as a  blend of essential oils help to nurture skin: redness-reducing rose absolute, anti-inflammatory chamomile blue, antibacterial and antiseptic tea tree and conditioning lavender.

TESTING: PURE SERUM BY OLIGODERMIE


As a beauty blogger, I’m always interested in trying new luxurious products. One of the brands that I have been testing lately is the french brand Oligodermie.

oligo_logo

Oligodermie® skin-care products have been specially developed to provide the skin with the natural ingredients it needs:
•    Trace Elements
•    Mineral Salts
•    Amino Acids
•    Vitamins
They contain highly concentrated active ingredients chosen for their different properties. They are formulated by skin type to be applied in daily use for a specific treatment.

The product that I’m going to introduce today is the “Pure Serum”

oligo_pur serum

 

 

What is a serum?

Serums are thick liquid-like products with active ingredients like vitamins and anti-oxidants that are formulated with smaller molecules so they can penetrate deep into the skin. Serums are designed to penetrate and treat various skin conditions, such as redness, dehydration or lack of firmness, wrinkles, dark spots or to brighten the skin.

 

Why have I chosen this specific product?

OLIGO_SERUM

The collection of serums at Oligodermie is really wide, but since I have a combination skin type, the Pure Serum was the right one for me.

The Pure Serum penetrates deeply in our skin to give it the boost it needs, its daily hydration and the vitality it seeks.

In addition, Pure Serum contains an extract of Cornflower, plant known for its softening and refreshing properties.

 

For which type of skin is the Pure Serum indicated?

This light blue serum is recommended for oily skin with problems such as skin shine in excess, enlarged pores, dull and muddy complexion, redness. These imperfections often come along with sensations of discomfort related to dehydration.

 

Directions to use

Apply to cleansed skin before moisturizer. Wait until serum has dried on the skin before applying moisturizer

 

Le Blog De Chanty’s experience

I have been testing it for quite a while now, I love the texture, it’s a bit thicker then water. It’s so light, spreads easily on my skin, and doesn’t leave any sticky feeling and it dries fast. (You need every second in the morning 😉 )

 

I wanted to try it during winter, especially because of the redness around my nose, they were reduced a lot and now they’re gone. Plus the skin is much softer, no more cracked skin!

 

Have you tried any of Oligodermie products?  Do you use serum everyday?

I would love to hear your thoughts 🙂
