- 10-15 Almonds

- Vitamine E
- Now in a blender, you have to add soaked almonds, ¼ teaspoon sandalwood powder, mulethi powder, and 2 tablespoons of rose water; now, make a very smooth paste
- Once done, you just strain the almond milk out of the mixture. Now this almond milk has the goodness of sandalwood, licorice, and rose water.
- If you want, you can add a few strands of saffron to it.

- Here if you want, you can add any essential oil for aroma, but I don’t like it, so I’m skipping on that.
- Once all the ingredients are added, you have to mix it well to get cream-like consistency.
- This will take about 5 minutes of whisking; then, you can transfer this to an airtight container and
- You can store this in the refrigerator for about 10-15 days. We suggest you to make small batches because the fresher it is, the more effective it is going to be.
- Now to apply to take a pea size, use a spoon to scoop out the cream, and just apply it all over your face and neck as you would normally apply any cream, massage it for few minutes, then leave it overnight, in the morning you can just rinse your face with normal water,
We suggest not to use face wash right in the morning because our skin produces essential oils at night, and it’s very important that oil stays on the skin, so just wash the face with lukewarm water, not with any face wash or soap.
You can use this cream in the morning as well.

Just make sure to apply sunscreen before going out in the sun, and with regular use of this cream, you’ll notice your acne marks will start fading, your face will look even-toned, brighter, and radiant. It will also help you in reducing fine line any signs of premature aging and wrinkles.
