D.I.Y Facial: Avocado Facemask
Hi! Sorry it’s been a while, exams are over and I will be doing so much more for the site!
I recently made an avocado face mask, as I recently learned about their skincare benefits when applying them to your face (and hair) as well as eating them!
How to make:
I used a full avocado for 2 of us but there was way to much facemask, so half an avocado would definitely be enough! I then mushed them up and it was a little lumpy but you don’t want it to be too runny as it wouldn’t sit on your face! I then added a squeeze of lemon and a few table spoons of honey! This clearly isn’t an expensive facemask and it’s also fun to make your own and could add in any other ingredients for flawless skin – such as oats for some exfoliation.
Why are these good for your skin:
Avocado: Avocado has many nourishing and hydrating effects for your skin. Avocado contains vitamins A and E, both of which have anti oxidant properties and help repair damaged skin. The oils in avocado are similar to the natural oils on your face this makes it great to moisturise and reduce inflammation.
Honey: This was discussed previously in my Oats and Honey Facemask which you can read here. Honey locks in moisture and prevents dryness. It also has anti-microbial properties as it can help in wound healing. Therefore it has known to be helpful in reducing acne scars.
Lemon: Lemons are great as a skin brightener as they contains citric acid and vitamin C so it will lighten any dark spots or acne scars and brighten your skin. Lemons can also help clear up acne as they have anti microbial properties.
Let me know if you give this a try!
