The Ultimate DIY Avocado Face Mask

February 23, 2013By 10 Comments

I call this the ultimate avocado face mask because it smooths and moisturizes, fights wrinkles, combats acne, and exfoliates… Oh yeah, and it smells (and probably tastes) good, too! :)

Let’s get right to it!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 ripe organic avocado (contains vitamins A, D, and E and has moisturizing and healing properties)
  • 1 ripe organic banana (contains vitamins A, B, and E—anti-aging kick-assers)
  • 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil or jojoba oil (abundant in antioxidants, moisturizing goodness, and it won’t clog pores)
  • 1 teaspoon of orange juice or lemon juice (contains lots of vitamin C and exfoliates, helps fight wrinkles, scars, and acne)

Combine all the ingredients (I like to use a food processor, but you can mash and mix everything by hand instead). Apply to clean, dry skin and leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off.

Enjoy your beautiful, soft, glowing skin, and be happy that you saved yo’self some $$ by DIYing it up! Btw, this mixture makes enough maskiness for 2 peeps (maybe even 3), so invite your homegirls over and make it a spa-sy fun evening.

Hugs! xx

p.s. What’s your fave DIY beauty recipe?
