It’s time for another classic homemade beauty recipe. This DIY face mask incorporates some of the most common ingredients we have in our kitchens. It’s a wonderful treat for all skin types, especially to soothe dry skin and to cleanse oily skin.
Ingredients and tools,
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Avocado (half)
- Mixing bowl or cup
As I have used in my Honey and Olive Oil DIY Face Mask, these are two of my favorite skincare products. Honey has tons of anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties, and olive oil is an amazing solution for dry skin.
The star ingredient in this DIY recipe is avocado. This exotic fruit is not only an excellent food product with many nutritional benefits. It also offers natural skincare abilities that are great at deep cleansing the skin and preventing acne breakouts. It contains many vitamins and acids that are essential for a smooth and refreshed skin.
Smash the avocado into a creamy texture.
Stir in some honey and olive oil (less than 1 tbsp each).
Apply this mask to your clean face and leave it on for about 15 minutes. Rinse off with water afterward. And now your skin should be moisturized and smooth. You do want to be careful when using this if you have sensitive skin as I did experience a bit of tingling sensation but no apparent redness afterward. Overall, this is an excellent mask for both dry and oily skin.
