Can an Avocado Face Mask Transform a Dull Complexion?

I always find my way back to creamy, vitamin-packed avocados for my homemade beauty care recipes. There is something about this soft green fruit that I absolutely adore. True, I get tired of how messy an avocado face mask can be, but, with fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamin C, B vitamins, and a nice little array of skin healthy minerals, I always go back!

Yes making a DIY mask with ripe avocado can totally transform a dull, dry complexion. Save your money on expensive hydrating creams and try this cute little fruit (did you know they call it the alligator pear?) Always an advocate of nourishing your skin from the inside out, I recommend throwing two-thirds of your avocado on a salad, and mashing the rest to make a beauty treatment, perfect for dry skin, but also useful for any woman over the age of 25 who wants to keep that youthful complexion! You can also use some to make a moisturizing hair mask.

Here are three quick and easy avocado face masks that you can try out:

For a silky smooth complexion, mix together:

  • 1/3 ripe avocado
  • 2 teaspoons grapeseed oil 
  • 2 teaspoons whole fat coconut milk

To balance combination skin enjoy the beauty benefits of:

  • 1/3 ripe avocado
  • 2 tablespoons lemon verbena hydrosol (a gentle astringent, you can get from Mountain Rose Herbs, I have an affiliate link at the bottom of my site)
  • 2 drops geranium essential oil
  • 1 tablespoon plain yogurt

For an anti-aging avocado face mask use:

  • 1/3 ripe avocado
  • 4 drops carrot seed essential oil
  • 1 teaspoon rose hip oil

Don't forget to open your pores before masking with a homemade facial steam, a quick shower, or just a warm, wet cloth!
