We’re all looking for a miracle skincare secret. Sadly, there probs my isn’t something g that will get rid of all our wrinkles, help us lose ten pounds AND do the laundry, but there are some natural options that can do a whole heck of a lot.
One of those miraculous oils comes from a pretty little fruit called an apricot. 🧡non greasy moisturizer: Apricot kernel oil is a light and ‘dry’ oil. When applied to skin, it immediately sinks in which leaves skin non-greasy. In fact if you’ve ever used apricot kernel oil, you must have noticed it absorbing into your skin within seconds, leaving your skin feeling tight and ‘dry.’
🧡treat inflammatory skin conditions: If you have eczema or psoriasis, use apricot kernel oil! It has strong anti-inflammatory properties and helps soothe skin and reduce redness. Lather your whole body with apricot kernel oil while it’s still damp from the shower. This will keep your eczema/psoriasis patches moisturized.
🧡firm and tone skin: If you’ve used apricot kernel oil on your face before, you’ll know how it soaks up very fast and leaves your skin feeling tight and dry. This makes it good for tightening and toning skin. It’s best applied right before your usual moisturizer! I love doing this to gently tone up my skin without using harsh astringents.
🧡reduce wrinkles: The unsaturated fatty acids found in apricot kernel oil coupled with the Vitamin E content are good for promoting youthful skin. You can make a anti-aging serum with apricot kernel oil for ageless skin! 🧡bye bye, dark circles: Apricot kernel oil is rich in Vitamin K, which is known to reduce dark circles. It also contains vitamin E and omega 6 fatty acids that together with Vitamin K, nourish skin deeply, allowing the nutrients to penetrate the surface of your skin and reaching the blood cells. 🧡moisturize hair: Apply a little apricot kernel oil to your damp hair to seal moisture into it and keep it hydrated and soft! You can even mix in your favorite essential oils in apricot kernel oil and make a simple yet ballistic leave-in conditioner.
