Might Improve Your Skin
Empirical evidence indicates that water-drenched almonds may fight your skin problems. Many researchers believe that both internal and external usage of almonds benefits our skin.
First of all, the consumption of soaked almonds leads to a better quality of nutrient intake. Most of these nutrients (such as vitamin E and some others) are powerful antioxidants, which protect us from free radicals that damage our cells (including skin cells). Therefore, the more nutrients we get with almonds, the better it is for our skin.
Next, thanks to the high content of polyphenols in almonds’ outer layer, they can be used externally to soothe irritated skin. The paste made of mashed almonds is found to be very helpful for chapped and itching skin.
