Buenos Aires beauties are known for their intense, drop-dead gorgeous eyes (ever seen an Argentine tango?). Turns out the secret to achieving that come-hither gaze may be lurking in your kitchen cupboard.

Almond oil is a rich source of vitamins A, B and E, and because its composition is similar to the natural oil found in a baby’s skin, it’s mild enough to use on the delicate eye area.
