You can’t just show up for a party, ladies! It takes preparation. Apart from deciding on the perfect outfit, you need to ensure your skin has a natural glow and adds to your beauty for the event. Hence, you need to indulge in some skincare right before a party.

The first step involves scrubbing to get rid of dead skin cells and impurities that cause the skin to look dull. There is one problem, though. Scrubbing during the winter season can make the skin extremely dry. So, what’s the solution? 

Well, the solution to make your skin glow naturally right before you step out to party is simple: almond serum! Almond is the magical ingredient your skin needs, especially during the winters. You see, almonds are loaded with vitamin E and antioxidants that nourish your skin and make it glow. 

There’s no need to look beyond your kitchen cabinet because we’ve got you the perfect DIY home-made scrub with almonds that is easy to prepare and gets you party-ready with just one use!

The best part is that this scrub is all-natural and contains zero chemicals. So, there’s very little chance of you facing any adverse allergic reaction at the last moment.

Here are the ingredients that you’ll need for this home-made face scrub with almonds
  • Almonds, soaked, 5 to 7
  • Almond oil, 1 tsp (feel free to replace it with coconut oil if that suits you better)
  • Sugar, 1 tsp
  • Essential oil (any), 4 to 5 drops
Here’s how to prepare this almond face scrub

1. Soak the almonds overnight. In the morning, grind them.

2. Now, add the crushed almonds to a bowl. Next up, add almond oil, sugar, and essential oil. Mix the ingredients together.

Here is the right way to apply this nourishing almond scrub

First of all, you need to do some hygiene checks. Wash your hands properly before starting the process. Next, dip a cotton ball in rose water and clear your face with it. This will remove any dust or impurities from your skin.

After prepping your skin, apply the home-made face scrub with almonds on your skin. Gently massage it on your face and neck. Do this for 3 to 5 minutes. Let this scrub stay on your skin for another 15 minutes. 

Steam the face for 10 minutes so that your skin can absorb all the nutrients from the oils and the almonds. Next, rinse your face with cold water. The last step is the most crucial one. Closing the skin pores using cold water will ensure that dust doesn’t affect your skin.

Also, watch:

That’s all you need! One look at yourself after this process and you’ll see the effect of almonds.

Don’t forget to moisturize your skin with a light moisturizer after the entire process. In addition, we recommend that you give your face wash a miss after using this almond scrub for at least a day.

Get ready for all those compliments on your skin at the party and don’t forget to share the recipe for this home-made face scrub with your fam!
