Skin Care - Honey and almond moisturising / exfoliating mask
Easy recipe to try at home (ready in seconds !)
Ideal for dry and mature skins
100 % natural
30ml apricot or evening primrose oil or even rosehip (depending on your skin type)
1 teaspoon clear runny honey
Enough finely ground almonds to make a paste
2 drops frankincense
2 drops mandarin
2 drops neroli
Mix the oil and honey and add enough almonds to make a paste in a clean glass bowl.
Add the essential oils.
Apply to your face and neck area, avoiding the eyes.
Leave on for twenty minutes while resting with eyes closed or reading a good book.
If you don't have time or do not want to keep the mask for so long, you can just use it as a gentle exfoliator. Rub in circular motions over the face. The ground almond is soft enough as to not irritate the skin (which is important for dry and sensitive skins) and will gently rub off dead skin particles.
Rinse off with warm water and follow with a hydrolat to tone.
Finish with moisturiser or night cream of your choice.
Any extra mask will last for three days if stored in the fridge. Cover with lid or cling film.
