Ingredient Benefits

Avocado
Avocados, also known as the good fat, contains polyunsaturated fats, essential vitamins, and antioxidants. These elements aid in softer and younger-looking skin. 

Raw Honey
Raw honey is known for its natural healing properties— described in the beauty world as the natural exfoliator. Raw honey can remove dry skin, exposing the skin’s new skin cells. 

Yogurt
Yogurt contains probiotics. Probiotics are often called “good” or “helpful” bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy, which also supports anti-aging. It’s a natural moisturizer which tightens the skin.

You will need:

  • 1 fully ripe fresh avocado—remove skin and seed.
  • 1 tablespoon of raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon of plain organic yogurt 

You can decrease or increase the measurements.

 

Prepare face mask: 

  • Remove the pit from the avocado.
  • Using a spoon, loosen the skin all the way around, and scoop out the flesh. Mash your avocado until it attains a creamy texture. 
  • Stir in the honey, evenly combining with the avocado.

Note: Using a spatula is much easier when mixing.

  • Add the yogurt into the honey and avocado.
  • Continue mixing until all ingredients are combined.

Note: Take your time and combine all ingredients smoothly until you reach a creamy-textured cream.

Apply mask:

  • With a brush or your fingertips, gently apply the mixture onto your face and neck. 

Note: I recommend applying two layers to the face. 

  • Let the mask sit on your skin for 10-15 minutes.
  • Once dry, thoroughly rinse off the mask with lukewarm water.
  • Pat dry your face with a soft washcloth. 
  • Enjoy smoother and softer skin.
