Avocados are highly popular as a food, but did you know you can use the flesh of an avocado directly on your skin? They are filled with healthy fats, antioxidants, and Vitamin E. Instead of throwing out overripe avocados, try making a face mask out of them! It makes for a great, hydrating mask and its inexpensive!
This mask is great during the colder months when the skin is exposed to harsh winds and cold temperatures. I like to do this mask at least once a week or whenever my skin is feeling dry.
I like to make my own face masks for two reasons. First, I have total control over what ingredients are being used. I don’t have to worry about things like parabans, chemicals, or preservatives. Second, I can save money on my skincare regime. Instead of buying face masks for hundreds of dollars I can go into my kitchen and use what I already have and get the same or similar results.
