Recently my complexion has been more flawed than it used to be with blemishes, dry skin, and a lot of redness. I’ve been looking at masks and creams but wanted something natural for my skin. This Avocado Honey Facial Recipe is wonderful and the ingredients are not only good for my skin, they’re also organic!
Avocado Honey Facial Recipe
- 1/2 organic avocado (save the pit so you can grow avocado from seed)
- 1 tbsp organic honey
- 1 tbsp organic coconut oil
- splash of fresh lemon juice
About the ingredients:
Avocado – The avocado is great for soothing the skin and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Honey – The honey not only is a great moisturizer, it also is full of antioxidants and will draw out impurities in your skin leaving it clean and fresh.
Coconut Oil – The coconut oil also moisturizes the skin while it cleans. Like the avocado, the coconut oil soothes the skin. In addition, coconut oil has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties that help skin in many ways.
Lemon Juice- Lemon juice is a natural astringent helping cleanse skin of excess oil. Just a splash, about a teaspoon is good enough. It is also full of vitamin C which provides antioxidants to your skin helping reduce skin damage.
How To Make An Homemade Avocado Facial Mask
Remove the pit from the avocado and spoon the half of avocado into a small bowl. Use a fork to mash the avocado until it is smooth. You could also use a small food processor.
Add the honey to the mashed avocado and blend well.
Add the coconut oil and a splash of lemon juice. Continue blending until smooth.
Transfer the avocado mixture into a small bowl or jar. You will not use all of the mask as the fruit of the avocado goes a long way.
Apply the mask to your face and allow it to set for 10 minutes.
When the 10 minutes has passed, apply a warm wet wash cloth for approximately 30 seconds. This helps your pores to open and the mask to fully work. After the 30 seconds, use the cloth to remove the mask. You can use this avocado facial recipe once a week along with your regular skin care routine.
