The benefits of avocado are not only limited to consuming it as food, because these extend to your skin with this homemade avocado mask, which will help you with any dryness problem you have.
Avocado is full of nutrients, for example, it is a great source of monounsaturated fats and vitamin E, which is antioxidant. On the other hand, the healthy fats it contains work very well when applied to the skin, as natural oils nourish and moisturize it. They are also full of antioxidants and vitamins that can help with redness and inflammation.
How to make an avocado mask for the face
To make this mask you will need a blender and wash your face before. The ingredients you will use are as follows:
1 ripe avocado
1/3 cup natural yogurt
2 tablespoons of honey
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Simply blend all the ingredients in a blender and mix to a smooth consistency. Apply generously to the face and neck, and let it sit for about 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water.
Aside from the benefits of the main ingredient, honey can help with a variety of skin problems, including acne, eczema, psoriasis, and inflammation.
For its part, the creamy texture of yogurt can help retain moisture and potentially brighten the skin. Some research suggests that it can even help to even out skin tone.
Finally, lemon juice provides vitamin C, an antioxidant and a brightening agent, and helps to give the skin an impeccable shine and prevent avocados from oxidizing.
An extra trick is to add oat flakes, because its anti-inflammatory properties can help soothe and treat the skin, and thus increase the effectiveness of the mask. You can also put it in the refrigerator a few minutes before use, to help you shrink pores and relieve fine lines and wrinkles.
Did you know that avocado nutrients can also be harnessed in tea and water? With this fruit nothing is wasted and you can make avocado bone tea or avocado water as well.
