Beauty From The Inside Out

Beauty products have long touted their love of almonds.

Your skin loves almonds too.

Several key nutrients found in almonds are linked to skin health, making them a delicious addition to daily beauty regimens:

  • Almonds are rich in antioxidant vitamin E, which may help protect cells from the damaging effects of free radicals, caused by pollution, UV rays from the sun, cigarette smoke and other environmental and intrinsic factors. One serving of 23 almonds (about an ounce) provides 50% of your daily recommended vitamin E needs.

  • You’ll find 8% of the Daily Value for zinc. Zinc contributes to the integrity of healthy skin. 

  • Two B vitamins contribute to the maintenance of normal skin. Almonds offer 25% of the Daily Value for riboflavin and 6% of the Daily value for niacin.

  • Almonds are a good source of copper, which plays a role in skin and hair pigmentation.

  • Linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid, helps prevent skin dryness. A one ounce serving of almonds has 3.5 grams of linoleic acid.

A new wrinkle study.

There is now research that suggests almonds could help reduce wrinkles, adding a whole new meaning to natural beauty. 

An almond life is a fit life.
