Health benefits of almonds for hair and skin

If you have made a shift to a healthy lifestyle, almonds must be a part of your regular diet. If it’s not, there are plenty of reasons to include it in your diet.

One of the most loved tree nuts, almonds are a powerhouse of nutrients. They contain proteins, fiber, vitamin E, niacin, riboflavin, omega-3 fatty acids, potassium, magnesium, and antioxidants. These healthy treats provide a plethora of health benefits that promote heart health, weight loss, and maintain cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

However, a healthy lifestyle is not restricted to immunity, digestion and good heart health. It also extends to skin and hair. The nutritional profile of almonds make them a perfect food for healthy skin and hair. Eat these healthy treats raw, or grate them on salads, savory dishes or desserts for glowing skin and healthy hair.

Moisturizes Your Skin
Does dry skin bother you? Try almonds! The oily nut acts as a natural moisturizer for your skin. Vitamin E in almonds helps remove dead cells, fights off dryness, and nourishes your skin.

Include almonds in your daily diet and you no longer have to worry about dry, itchy skin. Eat them raw or add them to dishes to get that soft, supple skin.

Brings Natural Glow to Your Skin
The sedentary lifestyle combined with stress, pollution and lack of sleep has snatched away the natural glow from skin. Fortunately, almonds are here to your rescue!

The antioxidant components in almonds help remove toxins from the skin. Vitamin E repairs any damage to the skin and accelerates new cell formation. This enhances the texture of your skin making it softer.

Eat almonds regularly to regain your skin’s glow. If you don’t like them plain, go for natural, gluten-free flavored almonds.

Slows Skin Ageing
Despite eating healthy and working out, there are times when you cannot avoid stress and working late nights. This results in fine lines and wrinkles on your face, which quickens the ageing process.

Eating a handful of these healthy treats helps counter skin ageing. Almonds are rich in antioxidants that help rid your body of free radicals, which promote skin ageing. It also helps reduce wrinkles. With the ageing process slowed down, your skin remains youthful and healthy.

Reduces Dark Circles
Do you have dark circles? You don’t have to worry! A common problem, dark circles occur because of sleep deprivation, stress and fatigue. These factors can make your skin appear dull, exposing the dark skin tissues and blood vessels under the eye.

The oil and nutritional content in almonds fights dullness of the skin, reducing dark circles. It is also a great solution for occasional puffiness around your eyes. Combine almonds with tomatoes, cucumber, green vegetables and other foods rich in vitamin E for double benefits.

Rids Your Hair of Dandruff
Almonds have been used in hair treatments and oils for over centuries now because they contain vitamins and minerals that nourish the hair. Almond oil can reduce dandruff problems.

Regular intake of almonds provides essential fatty acids, vitamins A, D, and B, which reduces flakiness to prevent dandruff. Apart from having these healthy treats, use almond-based hair products that are natural and free of chemical preservatives for dandruff-free hair.

Promotes Hair Growth
Hair fall is a widely prevalent issue among men and women across the world due to the lack of proper nutrition, pollution and consistent stress and anxiety. Fortunately, there are foods like almonds that have your back!

Whether you eat these healthy treats raw, roasted or in dishes, they provide you with essential vitamins and minerals like A, B1, B2, B6, D, magnesium, mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids, etc. These nutrients are essential for healthy hair growth.

Almonds provide nutrition to treat damage, prevent flakiness, strengthen hair follicles and nourish the scalp and hair strands. This decreases hair fall and boosts healthy hair growth.

Acts As a Natural Hair Conditioner
Using chemically-laden hair styling products, and exposure to rising pollution and stressful lifestyle can take away the shine from your hair. If you have dry, dull hair, then include almonds in your diet.

The nutritional value of almonds not only strengthens the hair, but also naturally moisturizes the scalp and hair strands. Consume almonds regularly for glossy, smooth hair.

If you don’t like them plain, try flavored almonds, especially truffle almonds. Black truffle is rich in nutrients including essential fatty acids that improve hair health. Munch on these healthy, mess-free, chocolaty treats for beautiful hair.

Final Word
The tasty oval shaped nut has a myriad of benefits to offer. It’s time you add a fistful of almonds to your daily health regimen. Recipe33 provides a range of NON-GMO project verified, gluten-free flavored almonds to add to the variety of these healthy nuts in your diet.
