Moisturizing Avocado Face Mask for Dry Skin

Moisturizing Avocado Face Mask for Dry Skin

Avocados have benefits and are a great food and source of Vitamins C, E, and D.  These properties make Avocado Face Masks great for people with dry skin that has especially been exposed to sun.  They are also a good source of potassium as well as the minerals, copper and iron. 

The Avocado Face Mask is also a great mask for those of you that have developed red skin due to dryness!  The healing properties of avocado help to reduce swelling, dryness and redness.  So, if you're suffering from skin that just seems starved for moisture, vitamins, and minerals, or if you're just looking for that healthy glow on your skin, then the Avocado Face Mask is the home remedy for you. 

Ingredients:

1/2 ripe Avocado 

Few drops of lemon juice

1 tbsp yogurt

Read on to make the Avocado Face Mask below:


Directions:

Take the avocado and mash it with a fork until it is mushy like a paste.  You will then add a few drops of lemon juice to the face mask.  The lemon juice helps make sure that the Avocado Face Mask doesn't turn that dark brownish/black in color - which isn't very attractive.  The lemon juice also acts as a natural cleaner for your face which will help prevent acne.  Remember to use the pulp closest to the skin because this is where a lot of the vitamins and minerals are located.

Add the 1 tbsp of organic yogurt and mix well with the avocado until it is a smooth paste for your face.  The yogurt helps to soothe your dry skin as well as refine your pores.  Refined pores means managing acne breakouts which results in smoother, flawless skin.  Yogurt will help cool your skin if it is irritated and red as well. 

Once you are done making the paste, apply to your face gently using your fingertips.  Massage generously over your face (avoid eye area) in circular motions.  Massaging your face like this helps blood flow to your face as well, which promotes cell growth. You may use this on your neck as well. 

Leave on the Avocado Face Mask on your face for about 10-15 minutes.  Rinse off thoroughly with warm to cool water and pat dry.  Tone and moisturize as usual!  You will notice changes in your skin's texture in a few weeks.  The avocado face mask can be used 2x a week to begin and then maybe once every other week.

Enjoy!
