The primary component required for crafting this exceptional homemade facial mask is a ripe avocado. If the avocado is slightly overripe, that’s actually perfect for turning it into a mask. To start, cut the avocado in half, remove the seed, and scoop the flesh into a bowl.
Avocado is chosen for its abundance of omega-3 fatty acids, along with vitamins A, D, E. It also contains vitamin E oil and avocado oil, enriched with potassium and various nutrients that are easily absorbed by the skin, promoting the development of rejuvenated and fresh skin.
Research indicates that applying avocado can assist with eczema, prevent and treat acne, address dry flaky skin, and alleviate psoriasis. Simply mash the avocado in the bowl with a spoon or fork until it achieves a smooth consistency, and then incorporate the next ingredient.
The second and final ingredient for this DIY face mask is organic honey. Honey acts as a natural antibacterial agent, providing intense moisturization and contributing to a radiant complexion while minimizing signs of aging.
Add approximately two tablespoons of honey to the avocado mixture. Thoroughly mix the ingredients to ensure even distribution, paying particular attention to incorporating the honey deeply into the avocado. Once a smooth consistency is achieved, apply the mask to your face using a brush or your hands. Begin in small sections, as you may need to reapply layers to fully cover your face, especially in areas like under the eyes and other dry or dull spots.
Allow the mask to sit for about 20 minutes. Throughout this time, you may notice the mask tightening and darkening in color. The sensation should be strong and soothing. When it’s time to remove the mask, use warm water and a paper towel in circular motions to ensure the absorption of all the nutrients. After drying your skin, you’ll likely notice a remarkable difference.
