In this month of love that everyone is preparing for date nights, parties etc, i thought i should add a little spice to your beauty package by letting you in on the magic of Almond. Almonds contain lots of healthy fats, fibre, protein, magnesium and vitamin E. The health benefits of almonds include lower blood sugar levels, reduced blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels. They can also reduce hunger and promote weight loss. Aside all these, almond is perfectionist when it comes to skin, our skin speaks louder than words that is why we spend so much money and time looking for ways to make it flawless. Below are the five (5) most effective natural face packs using almonds that can be done at both home and the spa for flawless skin:
To make your face naturally fair and brighter, all you need is almonds and milk. Soak few almonds probably 4-10 nuts in milk at night and the next day, crush the almonds with the milk to make a granular paste. Apply that paste on the face for 20 minutes or when it gets completely dry and wash the face with cold water. This almond face pack is best for all skin types, if you are looking for fair complexion and smooth skin.
We mostly have scars on our faces as a result of acne and pimples which are very frustrating and we would like to do all we can to get rid of them. Soak some almonds in water overnight, grind them and add some yogurt to make paste. Apply the paste on the face and wait like 20 – 30 minutes for it to dry, and then rinse the face with clean water. Pat your face dry with a towel and apply a moisturiser.
FOR DRY SKIN
The ingredients for this face pack are almonds, oatmeal and milk. Soak some almond overnight; blend them with milk and some oatmeal to make a paste. Oatmeal is suitable for all skin types, and even for the most sensitive skin because of its anti- inflammatory properties and its very nourishing to the skin. Apply this on the face evenly and wash the face with cold water after 20 minutes. It will be slightly granular so will also scrub the peeling skin from the dry face.
FOR GLOWING SKIN
This is something everyone is dying for, glowing and flawless skin. This face pack is very special and easy to prepare, all you need is banana and almonds. Soak the almonds overnight in water, grind the almonds to get a paste and add some mashed banana pulp. Apply the pack on the face, wait for about 20 minutes and then wash it off with clean cold water. Unlike the other face packs, the results of this one is much more instantly so you can do it before stepping out for a date or party.
FOR REMOVING SUN TAN
Blend some almonds which you have to soak overnight with milk or rose water and some lemon juice. Apply the paste on the face and around the neck and leave it for 20 minutes. Wash this with cold water. Lemon juice has some lightening properties so is good for removing sun tan from the face and also on the body.
For effective and lasting results, these face packs which is very cheap and easy to prepare must be part of our beauty routines. Let me quickly add that these are good for men as well.
