Beauty Tips

There is nothing softer than a baby’s skin.  Sweet almond oil is often recommended by dermatologists and doctors.  Almond oil has a light, sweet scent and contains vitamins A, B1 B2, B6 and E, as ell as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Almond oil is an excellent choice for use on babies because it is naturally rich in emollients and pure enough for sensitive baby skin.  Almond oil for babies is useful in several ways:

Shampoo

Massage almond oil into your infant’s scalp using gentle, circular motions with just the tips of your fingers. This will help loosen cradle cap, which is a common, scaly rash that looks like large dandruff flakes, and loosening the cradle cap will enable you to wash it out more easily.

 

Conditioning

Pour a dime-sized amount of almond oil onto your fingers. Comb the oil through your older baby’s hair with your fingers and massage it into her scalp. Almond oil smells sweet and can help promote thick, healthy hair.

Massage  

Pour a quarter-sized puddle of almond oil into your palm. Rub your hands gently together to warm it, then massage your baby’s skin. Start with arms, working gently from shoulders down, then move to legs, chest and belly, then back. Massage stimulates respiration, circulation, digestion and elimination. Massage is also thought to help relieve gas and colic; it also helps heal the infant during illness by easing congestion and pain.

 

Reduces Indigestion

Massaging your baby with sweet almond oil reduces the chances of indigestion and upset stomach. This is a common problem in infants that can cause a lot of pain. Use this oil to gently massage your baby’s tummy.

Skin Tone Enhancing

Applying almond oil on the skin regularly helps makes skin even toned and smooth.   Almond oil clears all type of blemishes.  Almond oil can be applied on the new-born babies to improve their complexion.

 

 

Warnings to remember

  • Avoid getting almond on your baby’s hands or feet, as they are likely to end up in her mouth.
  • You must never apply oil around the navel, eyes, ears and nostrils, as there are chances of an infection if the oil enters these parts.
