HOW TO: Almond Face Mask

Almonds and almond oil have been used for beauty purposes for ages. Being rich in nutrients, especially Vitamins A and E, almond oil improves complexion and soothes skin irritation and inflammation.  An almond face mask is a great way to repair damaged skin.  The natural ingredients that go into a homemade almond face mask rejuvenate the facial skin, making it healthy and glowing. An almond mask can especially prove handy if you have dry skin, and are having a tough time keeping your skin youthful and moisturized.

I tend to use this in the winter when my skin gets a bit tough and I want it to be itself again :) Enjoy!

1 tbsp honey
1 egg yolk
½ tsp almond oil
1 tbsp yogurt

Mix all ingredients and blend well! 

Apply the mask on your face and leave it on for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and gently wipe the residue with a damp cloth to reveal a much softer and suppler skin.

Except for oat flour, mix all of the ingredients except oat flour and pour it into a bowl. Then add oat flour to thicken the paste and get the desired consistency. Apply to a clean face, avoiding the undereye area immediately after mixing, allow the mask to sit for 30 minutes, and rinse with warm water followed by a splash of cool water.

There are plenty of other types of ways to make the mixture for this sort of kind (raspberries) according to what you are trying to treat, this is just the Ingredient line up I go by because I have oily skin. It is great for  discoloration as well :)
