Honey Almond Scrub

Honey Almond Scrub

1/4 cup almonds (or 1/4 cup purchased ground almonds)
1/4 cup honey, or enough to make a spreadable paste

Grind the almonds very fine in a coffee grinder or food processor. Place in a bowl and stir in the honey until you have a goopy paste. This will keep for about a week, covered, in the refrigerator.

To use, dampen your face with warm water, scoop out about two fingertips' worth (about 2 tsp.), emulsify in your palms, and gently scrub your face. Remove with a damp facecloth, rinse with warm water, and follow with your usual toner and moisturizer.

Also try this with ground oatmeal -- great for allover use to alleviate itchy, dry, wintertime skin.
