Buy Almond Oil for Under Eye Bags and Dark Circles
Are You Seeing Tired Under Eye Dark Circles In The Mirror?
Have you ever considered using almond oil on your skin? If you are suffering from those dark circles under your eyes that can make us look much older than we really feel, maybe you should as it has some amazing benefits.
How many of us can afford to splash the cash on surgical procedures, expensive cosmetic treatments to cure the problem of raccoon eyes? The good news is that if you are looking for a really low-cost treatment method for under eye bags and dark circles, you could not do better than to buy almond oil.
Whilst there are many causes of these under eye problems in people who are otherwise pretty healthy, it can be a bit depressing to see a rather tired and weary looking version of yourself looking back at you from the mirror. You could be suffering from a problem of not getting enough sleep or your genetic inheritance may make you more prone to these problems than others of your age.
It is a fact that even when cash is tight, there are those who will spend more than they can afford on the latest must-have product in the hope that it will somehow work a miracle but it may come as a bit of a surprise to find that almond oil, even though it is not very expensive (especially when compared with some of the top brand name products) it is actually amongst the best home remedies for dark circles and it is pretty effective when it comes to improving the smoothness and texture of the skin in this delicate area.
Almond Oil for Skin is a Natural Treatment
I definitely recommend using an organic, cold pressed almond oil. The one I use here in the UK is from Fushi if you are in the US, you can buy . This is my personal preference as it is not really much more expensive and you have the reassurance of knowing that there is nothing but the natural product in the bottle. Fushi Sweet Golden Almond Organic Oil
Used in aromatherapy treatments to deliver more expensive essential oils (these are mixed into the almond oil which acts as a carrier), this wonderfully light and delicate oil is amazing as a moisturizer under the eyes where the skin is so delicate. It can also be lightly applied all over the face at night if you have dry skin and is very economical as you only need a tiny drop.
It makes skin very noticeably smoother and softer and because it is such a brilliant source of vitamin E your skin will also look healthier and more youthful. You don't have to stop at the area around your eyes either, because the oil is so inexpensive, you can be generous with it too and use if to massage any dry skin anywhere on your body, try it on elbows and knees and give your feet and hands a treat with an almond oil massage too.

Don't Just Use Almond Oil on Your Under Eye Area!
Almond oil is a totally natural product that you can use with complete confidence. As I mentioned earlier, you can use it anywhere on your body and it is very soothing and smoothing as well as helping to clear blemishes. For the reason that the under eye skin is thinner than in many other regions of the body and gets even thinner as we grow older (the only bit of me that has!), and because the skin in this area of our face is so mobile as we laugh and cry and express ourselves, using this natural oil to moisturize the skin helps to avoid the lines and wrinkles that start to develop first in this region of our face.
How To Use Almond Oil for Under Eye Circles
It is easy to apply as a treatment for those dark circles and eye bags.
- Just add a few drops onto your fingertips and then instead of smoothing it onto the skin, gently massage in very small circles - that's it!
- Using this method of application helps to boost circulation and to drain the fluid that can accentuate eye bags. It also helps the oil to get absorbed into your skin.
- What surprised me about using almond oil is that I was expecting it to feel greasy and sticky but it is so well absorbed that all you need to do is just blot your skin with a facial tissue when you have finished to leave a silky smooth skin that is ready for the application of your eye makeup.
Of course, it's not just girls and women who can benefit from this wonderful product, it makes a really good product that men can use for treatment of dark circles under their eyes and general skincare too.
The best bonus for me is, that because it is so inexpensive, I can use it as often as I like!
Home Made Remedy, Honey and Almond Oil Face Mask
Another way to use almond oil if you have time for a pampering session is to make it into a face mask. This is a home remedy skin care trick that is very easy to do if you whiz up a little bit of raw potato (peeled) or some cucumber (skin left on) in your food processor or blender. mix in a little almond oil and use this as a mask all over your face (it is great under the eyes).
As an alternative but just as easy homemade skin treatment, mix some honey into your almond oil and apply this to your face - although this is a little messy, it is wonderfully soothing and healing. You just need to leave either mask in place for about thirty minutes before rinsing off and patting your skin dry.
It is true to say that having eye bags or dark circles (or even both) are not the worst problems we could have as we grow older, they have the effect of making our reflection in the mirror seem older than we actually feel. I feel it is better to try to use natural prodcuts such as almond oil wherever possible so if you haven't tried it before, I can definitely recommend you buy almond oil, even if you only get the tiniest bottle to start with and just use it on your under eye area.
