My favourite homemade face masks – Avocado mask

Avocado peel leftovers can be used for a face mask
As part of my homage to my favourite
natural, homemade face masks, I had to share one of the quickest, easiest masks
I know, that instantly gives you baby-soft skin. 
Of all the face masks I’ve tried,
avocado is surely the easiest, as its requires minimal effort and
ingredients.  In fact, you can eat the
flesh of the avocado, it’s the skin we’re interested in.

All you need for an avocado-packed mask
You see, avocado is packed full of
nutrients and essentials fats and oils, making it a great skin treatment.

To use, you simply halve the avocado
and scoop out the flesh as you normally would, and you’re left with a shell
which has a thin layer of avocado flesh and some remnants still inside.  Now you can use this in a number of
ways.  You either hold the avocado peel
and rub the inside (fleshy bit) against your skin, or you can scoop out the
flesh remnants and massage this into your skin with your fingers.  It’s totally personal preference. 

Working the peel into the skin has its
benefits as you can apply pressure through the peel.  

However sometimes the peel can crack and rip
making it a little harder to use.  Using
your fingers however, gives you slightly more control.
Either is good and has the same result
– super soft skin.  The good fats help
moisturise and smooth the skin, making it look fuller, whilst also getting rid
of dry skin.
This mask is great for me as I’m on a
total health kick, and have stocked up on the green beauties.  And it’s a bonus that I can still keep the
avocado, I’m just using the bits I would have chucked away anyway. 
I would thoroughly recommend the
avocado mask, especially during the winter. 
It will give your skin the boost it needs.
