How to Make an Avocado Face Mask

You don’t have to lose your head trying to figure out which skin product can make your skin smooth, healthy and young-looking.

In fact, you don’t even have to go farther than your local green grocers for the perfect skin solution because it’s just in there.

We’re talking about avocados here – those green, little pear-shaped fruit we often see in salads and dips.  Yes, it’s not just a tasty treat for your palate, but a treat for your skin, too.

The avocado, aside from being a popular nutritious fruit can do wonders for your skin, especially if it’s dry, scaly, wrinkled or even when you’re not having any skin problems at all.

Another key advantage of making your own face mask is you can be sure what goes into it.  No dangerous chemicals added to make the potion smell good or feel creamy when you lather it on your face.  Besides, why would you need those when your ultimate purpose is to make your skin beautiful, right?

Avocado face masks are a great way of relaxing and pampering yourself while cleaning your pores, soothing your skin and helping cure acne.

This avocado face mask is simple to make – and very affordable.  All you need are:

  • 1 Ripe avocado
  • 1 tbsp. of Honey
  • Natural yogurt
  • 2 slices of cucumber.

Mash the avocado until creamy.  Add one tbsp. of natural honey and natural yogurt on the mash and mix until its texture becomes spreadable and there are no lumps.

Apply a thin layer of the mixture on your face and neck, the two slices of cucumber on your eyes.  But before you do that, wash your face to make sure your skin is free of oil and dirt to allow the nutrients from the mixture to be easily absorbed by your skin.

Leave the mask on for 15 to 20 minutes.  Thoroughly rinse with water after.

The potassium content of the avocado — which is known as youth mineral – plus the rich Vitamin E found in this fruit will help hydrate your skin and smooth out wrinkles.

The honey you mixed in will make your skin glow and look younger.  The lactic acid in the yogurt should clean, sooth and refine your pores.  And to top it off, the two slices of cucumber placed over each of your eye, with cucumber’s astringent properties, would reduce the circle under your eyes.
