Improve Your Skin through Walnuts

Let’s break down the varied ways walnut components promote beautiful, healthy skin through nutrition and application.

Combating the March of Time

Time can’t be reversed, and aging will continue no matter how hard you fight. You can, however, make good choices in what you eat and how you care for your skin. Walnuts have a wealth of vitamins and antioxidants that protect the skin from environmentally caused damage when you consume them regularly. Intense moisture and greater collagen production also promote the health and youthful appearance of the skin.

A walnut oil, rich in Vitamin E, is beneficial as part of a skincare regimen to keep the skin as free of wrinkles and lines as possible with natural treatments.

Combating Blemishes and Breakouts

The anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties of walnuts fight the causes of breakouts. Not only does walnut consumption lead to a healthier immune system that can fight the offending infection from the inside out, but walnut cleansers can also keep the surface free of blemish-causing bacteria and microbes.

Combating Dull, Dry Skin

A walnut scrub contains ample vitamins and antioxidants in addition to the texture needed in an effective exfoliant. Many commercial and DIY recipes for exfoliant treatment call for walnuts to help remove dead skin cells, oil, and dirt from the pores and skin without breaking the skin barrier itself.

The Vitamin E and Vitamin B5 found in walnuts are also helpful for the complexion when included in the diet. From tightening pores to brightening skin and eliminating dark spots, the overall complexion benefits greatly from walnuts in dietary and skin care formulations.

The moisturizers provided by walnut properties come from fatty acids, Vitamin B5, and Vitamin E. Improve blood circulation, moisturize, and condition your skin with a purchased walnut oil product. Using walnut oil regularly helps manage the appearance of scars, reduces dark spots, and treats patches of dry skin.

Combating Dark Undereye Circles

Dark circles, puffy eyes, and other signs of fatigue are natural consequences of busy schedules, stress, sleep issues, and dietary problems. Walnut components can help calm these areas and lessen the inflammation and dark circles of the undereye area.

The benefits walnuts deliver for your skin are numerous and available through both consumption and application via skin care products.
