Almond milk has been used on the skin since ancient Egyptian times. It’s full of linoleic acids and minerals which help nourish and cleanses the skin. It leaves the skin soft and improves clarity. This is suitable for all skin types but particularly useful for those with normal to dry, dry or ageing skin.
It’s quick, easy and cheap to make. When I make a bottle of this lotion I use it twice daily for one week. I throw out the remainder after this time. I make a new bottle every 2 – 3 months and use as a treatment.
- 40g ground almonds (almond meal)
- 1.5 tablespoons of organic honey
- 400ml of still bottled water
Add the honey and almonds to the water. Stir until the honey has dissolved. Leave to rest for 2.5 hours. Filter and pour into a covered bottle (I once used a small airtight lunch box). Store it in the fridge.
Apply the lotion morning and evening to clean skin and let it work it’s magic.
