Have an extra half of an avocado? Why not make a dry skin mask! Avocados are deeply nourishing to your skin and are full of vitamins and other skin soothers. All you have to do is mash one-half of an avocado in a wooden bowl until it's creamy. Then apply the mashed avocado to a clean, dry face using circular motions and avoiding the eye area. After 20-30 minutes, wash the avocado mask off your face with warm water. It’s that easy. For extra moisture, mix a teaspoon each of olive oil and honey in with the avocado before applying it to your face.
Safety Reminder: Be sure to test a small amount of the mixture on your arm ahead of time to make sure you’re not sensitive to any of the ingredients in the facial mask.
