Avocado and Olive Oil Face Mask for Super Soft Skin

This is a natural face mask recipe that your skin will devour. It is rich, very rich, with plenty of nutrients, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids to really soften the skin and help fight wrinkles. Use it as a skin saving treatment after drying out from the elements, the summer sun or the cold air in winter. Both can leave your complexion dull and your skin in dire need of a powerful homemade facial.

Any basic olive oil face mask is great for dry or aging skin. Olive oil contains vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant, neutralizing free radicals. Vitamin E is also great for skin healing. The fatty acids in olive oil will soften skin, creating a smooth, velvety complexion. As an added bonus, olive oil also has anti-bacterial properties. Use a small amount on a clean cloth to wipe away dirt and makeup at the end of the day. Be sure to use extra virgin olive oil for your homemade face mask recipes.

Avocado is another winning ingredient when it comes to making sure the skin is soft and supple. This creamy fruit supplies the skin with vitamins and minerals, as well as fatty acids, which are easily absorbed by the top layers of the skin. Avocado oils penetrate the skin faster than other nutritional oils, including almond and olive oil. It is also soothing, which is great if you have dry, sensitive skin.

To make an avocado and olive oil face mask you will need:

  • 2 tablespoons of mashed, ripe avocado
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of clay powder or oat flour

Whip all ingredients together well. To get your face ready for the mask, rinse with a little warm water and a gentle cleanser and then pat dry. Rub the avocado olive oil mask into the skin before it has the chance to dry. The clay powder works really well, but oat flour is a great softening substitute. Let the face mask absorb into your skin for fifteen minutes before cleaning off.
