Almonds help to smooth and soften the skin naturally. Honey is packed full of antioxidants which are great for slowing down the ageing process. Almonds combined with honey and the astringent effect of egg white; make a beneficial mask for ageing and dry skin.
1 Large egg white
1 Tablespoon of organic honey
Soak the almonds in boiling water for 5 minutes and then leave to cool. Beat the egg white lightly. Peel all almonds and blitz them in a blender until they result in a coarse granular texture. Combine the almonds, honey and egg white together and blend until a smooth paste is formed. Rosewater can be added to thin out the texture if it turns out too thick.
Apply the mask in an even manner all over the face and neck and leave on the skin for 20-30 minutes. Remove the mask and wash the face with water, patting the face dry gently to dry. To complete the treatment, apply some of the rosewater to cotton pads and press into the skin. Leave to dry naturally and finish by applying your desired moisturizer.
