In recent years, a trend of using kitchen staples in skin care regimens has emerged and it looks as though the phenomenon is here to stay.
From using turmeric in DIY face masks and swabs of apple cider vinegar to soothe acne-prone skin, the stack of culinary ingredients migrating from pantry to bathroom cabinet is steadily growing.
And now, it appears the latest additions to the list are more commonly found as part of a delicious breakfast.
Almond milk and honey, a historical combination made famous by Egyptian queen and renowned beauty Cleopatra, work wonders on dry and sensitive skin.
Beauty 'botanist' for The Body Shop Jennifer Hirsch told Whimn the duo are a match made in cosmetic heaven.
'The antibacterial and water-attracting properties of honey complement the soothing and antioxidant properties of almond milk,' she said.
The milk, typically found in lattes or on breakfast cereal, enhances skin's natural glow and also protects against sun damage.
The cleansing quality of honey is ideal for acne treatment and prevention, while simultaneously slowing the ageing process by moisturising your natural complexion.
Both almond milk and honey have anti-irritant properties, making them ideal for anyone with sensitive skin.
'Dry skin is less effective at reducing transepidermal water loss, creating the opportunity for irritation and infection,' Ms Hirsch said.
The holistic skin expert went on to recommend buying a product bolstered with the two which has been dermatologically tested and made with stable ingredients.
