D.I.Y almond face masks


home-made almond milk

Every now and then, it’s a good idea to use natural products to make face masks. For starters, it’s can work out a lot cheaper and on top of that, you have full control over what you use, so you don’t have to be fooled into thinking you’re getting something else (believe me, it happens!)

As I mentioned before, almonds are packed with vitamin E which are very good for the skin, it has anti-aging properties and can help promote glowing skin. When used topically, it gently exfoliates the skin as well as keeping it hydrated.

So here are a few masks you could use for to tackle different skin problems:

Dull skin/Sensitive skin: Use an almond and honey mask

This will give your skin a special glow making it look more alive. Mix two spoonfuls of almond powder with one spoon of honey. Apply to face after cleansing and leave for no more than 20 minutes before rinsing out- watch your skin glow.

Dry skin: Use an almond, oats and lemon mask

Oats will soothe dry and itchy skin, while the lemon makes for a great skin toner.  Take one tablespoon of almond powder and oats and then mix with two tablespoons of lemon. Make a paste and apply on the skin after cleansing.

Oily skin: Use an almond, honey and lemon mask

As in the other masks, the almond will gently exfoliate your skin , while the honey and lemon will help tighten and brighten your skin. Mix 1 tablespoon of  each and apply to the skin after cleansing. Leave on for about 20 minutes before cleaning face.

There you have it, a few different ways you can use almonds in a face mask! If you know any other variations of these masks, feel free to throw them my way!
