So, we aren’t telling you to smear almond butter on your face (though you could do that), but we are saying that eating almond butter can have some really positive effects on your skin. We know some people will say that peanut butter does the same thing, but it doesn’t… technically speaking peanut butter has omega 3 & omega 6 ratio issues that don’t make it as good for your skin as almond butter.
It is packed with Vitamin E (almost 9mg per cup) which is great news for your skin. It protects your skin from the effects of oxidation (it’s impossible to keep the oxygen off your face) and photoaging (damage caused by the sun).
Most almond butter that is mass produced doesn’t have all of these benefits, they are also expensive, and include chemicals (that’s a big no no). Almonds are not sustainable in general because to grow one almond takes 1.1 gallons or 4.1 litres of water (that’s a lot). So, this might not be something you want to consider as a forever thing, but in the time of empty shelves and social distancing we decided to try making almond butter using a Nutri-Bullet and a stove top.
We are aiming to come out of this crisis with great skin at the very least…
