3 avocado face masks
1.Avocado and honey mask: hydrating
All the avocado face masks are better if you add some honey. That’s the reason the simplest homemade face masks have only those two ingredients: avocado and honey. Both are natural moisturizers for your skin.
Choose one fully ripe fresh avocado and mash it until it becomes creamy. Add one tablespoon of honey and mix them together until you make a smooth paste.
Remove your makeup and wash your face with warm water. Apply this homemade face mask on your skin and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse off the mixture with lukewarm water and pat dry your face with a soft towel.
This mask is perfect if you have dry skin!
2.Avocado and cucumber mask: refreshing
You can make some avocado face masks for almost all skin types. This one is a great remedy for acne. It’s also has a refreshing effect on your face on hot summer days.
Mash the pulp of one ripe avocado using a fork. Grate one small cucumber and squeeze it. Mix the avocado with two tablespoons of cucumber juice, to make a soft paste. Apply the avocado and cucumber mask all over your face, avoiding the eyes. If you want, you can place two cucumber slices over your eyes. Relax for 10 to 15 minutes with the mask on, then remove it using lukewarm water.
3.Avocado and oatmeal mask: healing
If your skin is dry or itchy, you can try homemade avocado face masks. As we were saying, avocado is full of natural oils that will hydrate and moisturize the dry skin naturally. But did you know that oatmeal heal, soothe, and relieve itching?
