Almonds – Spice of the Month

Almonds being a coveted part of the Indian diet, you may be already aware of the health benefits of this nutrient rich nut. Although slightly expensive, homemakers insist on including almonds in the family diet, particularly that of children.

Almonds are believed to have originated in North Africa and Western Asia. While we think of the almond as a nut, it is actually the seed of the fruit of the almond tree which bears beautiful and fragrant white and pink flowers.

Despite using almonds in day to day life, many are not aware of the tremendous skin benefiting properties of almonds.  Here’s a quick lowdown on why almond is one of the most popular ingredients in natural skin care and hair care worldwide.

A potent Antioxidant

Antioxidants are naturally occurring compounds which fight free radical damage responsible for skin aging, wrinkles and skin degeneration. As an excellent source of antioxidants, almonds help control visible and internal signs of skin aging.

Excellent Skin Food

Almonds are a great source of Vitamin E, a powerful ingredient which penetrates into skin cells and protects skin collagen against UV damage, age spots, wrinkles and dullness. Vitamin E is an excellent way to keep skin soft and hydrated and reverse skin damage.

Natural Remedy for Hair Problems

Almonds are a good source of magnesium, an essential mineral for healthy hair growth. As a result, almonds are a traditional and popular remedy for hair problems including hair loss, premature greying and weak hair.

Regularly nourishing the scalp with almond based hair oil treats hair fall and relaxes the mind.

Treat Under eye circles

Massaging the under-eye area with almond oil or almond based cream everyday relieves dark circles. This may be attributed to vitamin E’s ability to slow down the production of melanin, the skin pigment which causes age spots and skin pigmentation.

A Nutrient Powerhouse

Apart from vitamin E and magnesium, almonds are a good source of several other essential nutrients such as fibre, B vitamins, calcium, iron and potassium.  No wonder then that almonds are synonymous with beauty and good health.

Whether consumed or applied on the skin, almonds weave their magic, nourishing, healing and protecting the body in more ways than we can fully understand.
