Not only are avocados delicious – especially with eggs and toast – but they are also packed full of nutrients, making them ideal ingredients for face masks. Save money by making your own 100% natural mask, instead of splashing out on expensive store-bought versions which are probably full of harmful chemicals as well.
Avocados are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and also contain vitamin C. They’re also extremely moisturising without clogging your pores, rendering them suitable for all face types, even those with sensitive skin.
Here’s a nourishing recipe for an avocado, honey and yoghurt face mask.
You will need:
1 tsp organic honey
1 tsp plain yoghurt
Step #1 – With a fork, mash the avocado in a small bowl.
Step #2 – Add the honey and plain yoghurt into the bowl and combine all the ingredients together until the mixture is smooth.
Step #3 – Apply a thick layer of the mixture onto clean skin. Allow the mask to work its magic for about 10-15 minutes. To remove, use a warm face cloth to gently remove the mask and then finish with a splash of cool water.
Step #4 – Apply your favourite moisturiser.
If there’s any mixture left, we recommend that you discard it. It’s best to use fresh ingredients on your skin, and we all know what happens to an avocado if it’s left uncovered. Yep, nobody wants to put that onto their skin. You can make this mask 2-3 times a week.
