Lepota - Almond milk cleanser

Almond milk is a time-honored beauty treatment. Crushing the almonds by hands is said to draw out more "milk", but you can use a blender of food processor instead. The cleanser is suitable for all skin types.

6 tbsp whole almonds
cold water
2 tsp/ 10 ml honey
3/4 cup/ 200 ml mineral water
4 tbsp / 60 ml rosewater

Place the almonds in a saucepan and cover them with cold water. Bring to boil. Allow to cool. Strain, then squeeze the almonds from their skins when still moist. Chop the almonds finely by hand of in a blender or food processor. Crush the almonds by hand using a large, heavy mortar and pestle. Transfer the almonds to a bowl and beat in the honey. Add the mineral water, a few tablespoons at a time. Cover and leave to stand for eight hours. Strain off the liquid through muslin, squeezing well to extract as much as possible. Add the rosewater. Store in a sterilized bottle or jar in a refrigerator. Use within three weeks.
