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