Avocados are a fantastic fruit. Some even refer to it as the “super food”. Avocados have huge health benefits due to being loaded with vitamins and other nutrients.
As great as they are to eat, they are also amazing for your skin. You can use them to make wonderful masks that will leave your face feeling soft and hydrated. Avocados are a great antioxidant and loaded with vitamins C and E which are great for your skin. The fatty acid in them make a great moisturizer. Avocados have also been known to reduce redness and irritation as well as damaged skin cells.
So whip up a DIY mask using avocados the next time you really want to pamper yourself. You will not be disappointed!
Homemade Honey Avocado Face Mask
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- 1/4 ripe avocado
- 2 drops rose essential oil (I use these pure therapeutic essential oils here)
I also love using Frankincense essential oil which came with my Young Living Premium Starter Kit. It helps reduce dark age/sun spots on skin. Any reason I can find to get rid of those yucky sun spots… I’m doing it!
