Avocado FACE MASK RECIPE
|Servings: 1 Mask
|Time: 5 min.
2 tsp finely ground oats
1/2 ripe avocado
0.7oz white kaolin clay
1 tsp honey (optional)
1 tsp water
Combine all ingredients and use immediately.
Oatmeal can soak up the excess oil on your skin and help treat acne. Its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties help to treat dry skin and remove dead skin cells. Oats also contain compounds called saponins, which are natural cleansers. They remove the dirt and oil that clog the pores and exfoliate the skin.
Avocado helps your DIY face masks reach the deepest layers of the epidermis, restoring elasticity even to the driest of skins. Avocados are also high in beneficial fats and contain vitamins E and C, which are important for healthy skin.
Gentle yet stimulating, White Kaolin Clay soothes the skin while absorbing impurities and exfoliating dry patches.
Honey is extremely moisturizing and hydrates even the driest of skin. Honey is naturally soothing and has healing properties (it was traditionally used on wounds to aid healing!). It also nourishes damaged skin to fade scars, and boasts antibacterial properties with a hefty dose of antioxidants.
PRO TIP: If you have sensitive skin, we highly recommend to patch test any skin care product or ingredient before using a large amount – your skin matters!
