Natural Beauty

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,1 which may help protect cells from oxidative stress, caused by pollution, UV rays from the sun, cigarette smoke, and other environmental and intrinsic factors. One serving of 23 almonds provides 60% of your daily recommended vitamin E needs.

  • You’ll find 9% of the NRV for zinc. The antioxidant zinc helps maintain skin.

  • Two B vitamins also help maintain skin. Almonds offer 24% of the NRV for riboflavin and 7% of the NRV for niacin.

  • Almonds are a high source of copper, which helps maintain skin and hair pigmentation.

A new wrinkle study.

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