You might put almond milk in your coffee, but have you ever tried an almond product on your skin? Almond oil can cure your dryness, even out your skin texture and make your skin glow. It’s a nourishing, hydrating oil that you can use on your skin, hair and nails. It comes from cold-pressed almonds. You can use it in just about any way—a serum, a face moisturizer, a body moisturizer, a massage oil, an eye cream or a makeup remover. If you’re a makeup potions master, you can also combine almond oil with other essential oils to come up with your own concoctions.
We rounded up the best almond oil for your skin. Each bottle of almond oil will last you a while, because you only need a little bit. They each have precise dispensers, so you don’t accidentally pour a river of oil into your hand. Of our picks, one is ethically sourced while another is vegan and cruelty-free. One is even unscented, if you have a particularly sensitive nose. These plant-based oils can totally change your skin—in a more natural way than other skincare products.
