Maybe you can’t afford a milk bath like Cleopatra from Ancient Egypt, but you can horde the same benefits with some spare change. This is an easy trick with 3 of the best beauty ingredients gifted by nature - Almonds, Milk, Lemons.
Almonds are rich in antioxidants and vitamins to nourish your skin and keep it soft and supple. Milk hydrates and replenishes the skin, leaving it glowing and radiant. Lemons are filled with vitamin C and citric acid which helps remove dead skin cells and clear up dark spots, acne and freckles.
Pour 2 tbsp milk and 1 tsp lemon juice in a small bowl. Grind up ⅛ cup almonds in a coffee grinder. Add the grounded almonds to the bowl and mix thoroughly … that’s all, your lemony cleanser is READY!
Apply daily to gently cleanse skin. Rinse well with warm water for not only the cleansing attributes but for toning and exfoliating the skin. Finish with a splash of cold water to close the pores. Apply your usual moisturizer afterwards which will prevent the lemon from making your skin too dry.
