Almond milk has been used to cleanse and nourish the skin for ages. It is gentle and can be used on all skin types. It is especially good for dry and aging skin.

Almond milk contains vitamins A, B, F and Oleic acid, all of these are essential for healthy skin. The added honey in the recipe will improve the nourishing effect of this cleanser even more.

How to make almond milk:

Soak your almonds for 5 – 8 hours. (About a cup full)

Place your almonds in a blender / food processor with 500ml bottled water. Blend until the mixture resembles milk. Strain with a cheese/nut cloth. Add your honey to your almond milk and store. Can be kept for one week in the fridge. Watch the video below. 

I always have some almond milk made, since I use it in my fruit/veg smoothies. Delicious! Just saying. Also you can use the almond pulp and find recipes for facial scrubs. I use my almond pulp in my healthy banting sweeties.

Here’s the recipe for those who are interested:

My Banting Sweet recipe

How to apply your almond milk cleanser

Apply the mixture generously to your face and neck, leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry. This can be applied twice daily.

Benefits of Almond Milk for Skin

  • It is anti-aging.
  • Almond oil is rich in Vitamin E, which protects the skin from the effects of free radicals.
  • It is moisturizing.
  • Niacin helps to trap water in the cells. B3 vitamins aid in circulation.
  • Oil regulating.
  • Will control the amount of oil secreted by the sebaceous glands of the skin.

You can take advantage of these benefits even more, by consuming the almond milk. Why not make it on a daily basis to apply on the skin and drink the left overs ;-) Its super yummy.
