Face mask with avocado is a universal homemade remedy for skin care. Avocado masks can be used for all skin types due to hypoallergenic properties of this product. I like facial masks with avocado. They gently moisturize the skin and saturate it with vitamins.
When I mix avocado with different products and I do find something special in each combination. One of pretty recipe is avocado and honey mask.
As for today I intend to get something unusual for you. I wish you to try the mask scrub with avocado and apricot kernels powder. I like this combination and I do mask-scrub always when I have an apricot pits.
- ½ of ripe avocado
- 1 Tbsp of olive oil
- 2 tsp of apricot kernels powder
I will not describe how to make apricot powder now. It was mentioned in detail in the article about apricot scrub for face.
Wash ripe avocado and cut it into two parts. Extract the flesh from one half of the avocado with a teaspoon. Mash it to the uniform mass. Add olive oil and ground apricot kernels.
Stir the ingredients until a homogeneous mixture.
Apply the mask onto your face avoiding the eye area. Massage the skin by fingers in circular movements for 3 minutes.
You can have a nap for 15-20 minutes forgetting about the mask.
Carefully remove the mask with a paper towel when you wake up. Wash away the remains with warm water and a soft sponge.
This avocado mask is simply a great godsend for dry and gentle sensitive skin. But this does not mean that it can’t be used for other skin types.
