Avocado Face Mask
If you’re a fan of adding avocado to your toast (or anything else you eat), then perhaps you’d like to try adding it to your face too. While avocados have been long been considered a superfood, it’s been more recent that people have taken to smearing it upon their faces in the name of beauty.
For eating, avocados contain an impeccable roster of nutrients including vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, plus folate, niacin, potassium, and magnesium, to name a few. They also contain the good kind of fat known as monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA), something your body needs to help keep you feeling full. Those good fats also help keep your blood sugar level stable.
Within the creamy meat of the avocado, all those nutrients work beautifully on your exterior too to leave you with incredibly hydrated and brilliant skin. Those good fats make for a prime source of healthful hydration, one you can start harnessing on your skin right now, if you have an avocado on hand.
You can make an avocado face mask if you have an avocado and raw organic honey. Simply scoop out the flesh of your avocado and mash it up in a bowl. Add a tablespoon of raw organic honey and combine until you’re left with a consistent paste. Apply it to your skin and allow to soak in for 15 minutes. Rinse it off, then pat dry. It’s great for dry, dehydrated and aging skin.
If you have tired skin that needs a lift, try mixing just half of the flesh of a ripe avocado with a half-cup of cooked oatmeal. Even if you have a packet of it, that will work, though avoid using the flavored variety. Mix these ingredients together until it’s consistent throughout. Then, like the mask mentioned above, allow it to work for 15 minutes or until it dries up, then rinse away.
Prefer not to use all of your avocado on your face and maybe save it to use on your next salad? You’ll get intensive hydration, especially in dry weather conditions, if you mix 1/4 a ripe avocado, mashed, with 1 teaspoon of plain organic yogurt and a half-teaspoon of raw organic honey. Smear it on and leave it until it dries out, about 15 minutes, before rinsing. If your skin is on the oily-side, you should use a yogurt with a lower fat content.
