Hazelnut Oil is slightly astringent and can be used on oily or acneic skin. Hazelnut is a light, easily absorbed oil and is often used by estheticians for facial massage. It diffuses better than Sweet Almond Oil and penetrates the skin without leaving the skin greasy. It prevents dehydration of the skin and leaves it feeling soft and smooth. It is stimulating to the circulation and is reported in studies to have sun filtering properties, which makes it an excellent choice for cosmetic preparations and sun lotions. Do not use it full strength, but combine with an oil like Sweet Almond.
