Beauty DIY: Make an almond-lemon facial cleanser

How to ... Refresh your skin at home

Looking for a quick and easy way to smooth your skin and boost your beauty? Try this simple at-home recipe that will leave your skin tingling with health.

How to ... Refresh your skin at home

For a smooth, clean and refreshed face, try our almond-lemon facial cleanser. The oil in almonds provides the skin a boost of vitamins A and E, soothing dry or irritated skin and reducing redness and inflammation. Adding lemon juice to the mix can aid in reducing scars and acne, while making your face smell fresh and clean. Last but certainly not least, milk contains lactic acid and butterfat, which moisturize the skin, so try to use milk with at least 2 percent fat.

What you will need:

  • Food processor or coffee grinder
  • Measuring cup
  • Measuring spoon
  • Mixing bowl
