We all deserve a little pampering in life but can't always find the time. This super simple 2 ingredient face mask will give your skin that soft luscious glow we are all worthy of.
What you need:
1 quarter of an avocado (not fully ripe)
1 tablespoon of organic honey
Mash avocado to your desire with honey in a bowl.
Apply to face for about twenty minutes.
Rinse with luke warm water and pat skin dry.
Apply your favorite eye cream and moisturizer.
So good! So simple! So worth it!
Note: For best results exfoliate the skin before hand. Removing the top layer of dead skin cells will allow the mask to penetrate deeper.
Why avocado and honey?
Packed with antioxidants, rich with fatty acids, and high in potassium avocado is a wonder fruit. The antioxidants make it useful in healing sun damaged skin while allowing it to become more supple. Fatty acids and potassium help in moisturizing the skin. Avocado oil has also been known to help with conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
Honey has antimicrobial properties and is a natural antioxidant, which helps protect the skin from damaging sun rays. It also helps to support the skins ability to rejuvenate and refresh depleted skin. Minor acne problems can also be alleviated by the use of honey. Apply honey as a spot treatment to acne and leave over night.
It's the bee's knees!
