Almond Oil for Eye Bags

by Kimbry Parker

Almond oil comes from almond kernels and contains a variety of vitamins and nutrients. It is rich in protein, which helps relieve inflammation and dry skin. This makes almond oil ideal for use under the eyes to treat eye bags. Whether you’ve developed eye bags because of stress, lack of sleep or they are just hereditary, use almond oil to help tighten the skin and get rid of the bags.

Items you will need

  • Facial cleanser
  • Towel
  • Almond oil
Step 1

Wash your face like you normally would with facial cleanser. Rinse the cleanser off and pat your face dry with a towel.

Step 2

Put a drop of almond oil onto your fingertip. Dab the oil underneath your eyes where you notice bags.

Step 3

Leave the almond oil on your skin to dry without wiping or rinsing. Do this twice a day – once in the morning and again before bed – until the bags are gone, then continue using almond oil once a day under your eyes to help prevent the bags from returning in the future.

Tips

  • Use only sweet almond oil or pure almond oil on your skin -- not bitter almond oil, which is toxic.

    Refrigerate almond oil after opening.

Warnings

  • Do not use almond oil if you suffer from a nut allergy.
