Simple avocado yogurt face mask is effective for your skin like some kind of expensive hydrating cream.
Avocado contain up to 14% fats, mostly MonoUnsaturated Fatty Acids. These fats are very useful for our skin and body, so the avocado is often used in homemade masks and professional cosmetics.
I already mentioned why many women love to use yogurt for mask. You can read about its properties in the article benefits of yogurt.
Masks from these products are very gentle and pleasant. It is recommended for all skin types.
Mash avocado to get uniform puree. Mix avocado and yogurt.
Add some drops of olive oil for dry skin or some drops of lemon juice for oily skin.
Apply the mask generously over your face and neck except eyes area.
Leave the mask on your face for 15-20 minutes. Relax or prepare something from the remaining part of avocado. You can easy make a great sandwich spreading avocado on the bread with slice of tomato or cucumber on the top. Some salt and sandwich is ready. Enjoy the taste.
You can make a salad from avocado, onion and tomato, if you wish of course. Or you can add slices of avocado into ice cream. It gives the dish a delicious taste. Do not forget about the mask while eating.
Wash your face with warm water and with cold water to close pores.
Dry the face with a paper towel. Apply your favorite cream to face.
Your skin will thank you for that care by youthful appearance of yesteryears.
Things you have to know. Seven stages of avocados ripe:
Not ripe/ Not ripe/ Not ripe/ Not ripe/ Not ripe/ Not ripe/ Bad!
Strawberry Avocado and Yogurt Face Mask
This mask is very tender and fragrant. I often make masks from avocado with yogurt and strawberry with yogurt. I just got the idea to mix the ingredients and to see what happens.
I was pleased by result: the mask with soft structure from avocado and strawberry scent. What should be better? Of course that mask has become firmly established in my collection.
I am sure. This mask will save your money. It is so nutritious that you may not use the cream after. The skin will be soft and smooth like after expensive cosmetics.
Avocado is preparing for mask in normal way.
Wash it, cut it in half and remove seeds. Extract the pulp using a teaspoon.
Wash the strawberries. Cut it into pieces and fold together with avocado in a bowl.
I do a mixture with a hand blender to make it smooth.
I also use greek yogurt for mask, because it is thick. Mask with greek yogurt is easy to apply onto the face.
As a result I get a nice homogeneous puree.
Evenly apply it to the face and neck.
Relax for 20 minutes. Enjoy a cup of coffee or listen some good music or mix them all together.
The mask does not work well if your facial muscles are tense. If you’ve got the cucumber on hand put some thin slices on the eyelids to reduce fatigue.
Remove the mask from the face with soft paper towel. Rinse away any remnants with warm water. Refresh your skin with cold water to close the pores.
Now look at your face. You still need a nourishing cream? I don’t think so. Trust me.
Avocado Facial Mask for Dry Skin
Dry skin should always be nourished and moisturized. Otherwise, scaly patches of the skin which appear on the face don’t improve mood and well-being. An avocado mask for dry skin with natural yogurt and oatmeal is good way home care. Avocados contain monounsaturate fats and vitamins “A” & “E” which make it indispensable for dry and aging skin care.
The lactic acid which is present in yogurt will help your skin to get rid of dry cells. Besides, yogurt has a tender texture and does not annoy sensitive dry skin. Oatmeal acts as soft mechanical peeling.
Cut in half avocado and extract the seed. Pull out the avocado flesh with a teaspoon and mash it with a fork. Whole oats are too rough for the skin so it is desirable to grind oatmeal for 5-10 seconds. Use yogurt without sugar and additives.
Mix all ingredients together. You will get a soft greenish mixture.
Liberally apply it on the face and neck. You are free to do any other things or just watch TV.
Wash your face with a soft sponge in 20 minutes.
Another good way to moisturize the dry skin is avocado mask with potato. I gave this recipe in the article Homemade Moisturizing Face Mask.
I would appreciate your opinion.
