In celebration of National Avocado Day we’ve put together an avocado mask that is sure to leave your skin feeling hydrated and smooth with a supple glow!
Avocado is filled with nutrients and minerals such as vitamin E, Omega 3,6,9 and aids in the healing of sunburn.
Lemon juice is a form of vitamin C which is great for lightening any dark marks on the skin and giving the skin an overall brightening effect.
Honey helps with inflammation and acne with anti bacterial properties.
Yogurt contains lactic acid which is hydrating and a mild exfoliate.
1/2 ripe avocado
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp honey (Manuka is best)
1 tbsp lemon juice
Blend all ingredients together until smooth. The mask can be used right away or chilled in the fridge for a short while. When the mask is cold it’s great for sunburn, shrinking the appearance of large pores. To apply either use a brush or your fingertips. Remove the mask with a damp cloth after 20 minutes.
Having wine with your friend while you’re masking is optional, but totally recommended. HAPPY MASKING!
This makes enough for about 4 to 5 applications, and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days in a sealed container.
