|Almonds are very beneficial for the skin. Including them in the daily beauty regime can do wonders for the skin.|
|Almond body oil
In a clean glass jar take two cups of almond oil and two cups of rose petals or orchid flowers. Let it sit for two weeks. Strain and pour it in a bottle. Massage your skin with the oil. It is good for dry, flaky skin.
Almond-butter hand softener
Mix one tablespoon of almond oil with a cup of white homemade butter. Massage this mixture into your hands, everyday before you go to bed. If possible, cover your hands with white cotton gloves while sleeping. Your hands will become soft.
Mix two tablespoons of crushed almonds with one tablespoon honey. Apply the mixture on your face and leave it for five to ten minutes. Once it starts drying, gently scrub and then rinse with tepid water. The scrub removes dead cells and adds a glow to your face.
Powder 1.4 cup of almonds in a blender until they form a meal. Now add around 1/8 teaspoon of mayonnaise and whip. Rinse your skin. Apply the scrub on it, gently and thoroughly. Leave it on for about 10 minutes. Rinse off and follow with a vinegar rinse which is essentially a mix of one tablespoon vinegar in a glass of water. The scrub works wonders for very dry skin.
Almond rose body Lotion
Combine 1/4 cup rose-water, 1/4 cup glycerin, two teaspoons of witch hazel and 1 tablespoon of almond oil in a bowl. Mix and stir well to dissolve all ingredients. Pour into a bottle and use as body lotion.
Using an eyedropper, put two drops of almond oil in your nose, daily. Your skin will improve.
