Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon plain yogurt (optional, for extra hydration)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (optional, for brightening)

Benefits:

  • Avocado: Rich in healthy fats, vitamins, and antioxidants that deeply nourish and moisturize the skin.
  • Honey: Natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that soothe and heal the skin.
  • Yogurt: Contains lactic acid which gently exfoliates and hydrates the skin.
  • Lemon Juice: Helps to brighten and even out skin tone (use sparingly if you have sensitive skin).

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Ingredients: Scoop out the flesh of the ripe avocado and place it in a bowl. Mash it until smooth.
  2. Add Honey: Mix in the tablespoon of honey until well combined.
  3. Optional Ingredients: If desired, add the yogurt and lemon juice to the mixture. Stir until the mask has a smooth, creamy consistency.
  4. Application: Cleanse your face thoroughly. Apply the mask evenly to your face, avoiding the eye area.
  5. Relax: Leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes. Use this time to relax and unwind.
  6. Rinse: Rinse off the mask with lukewarm water, gently massaging your skin in circular motions. Pat your face dry with a soft towel.
  7. Moisturize: Follow up with your favorite plant-based moisturizer to lock in the hydration.

Usage:

  • Use this mask once a week to keep your skin nourished, hydrated, and glowing.

Storage:

  • This mask is best used fresh, but you can store any leftover mixture in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
