DIY Avocado Honey Mask

There is a reason every skin-care book has a recipe for an avocado mask: this fruit is simply so rich in proteins, vitamins, lecithin, and essential fatty acids that it is like a well-balanced meal for the skin.

This avocado mask will leave your skin smooth and soft. If you want to add extra moisture to the mask, include the coconut oil, which is high in saturated fats.

1/2 avocado, peeled & pitted
1 egg
1 Tbsp plain yogurt
1 Tbsp honey
1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp coconut oil (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a blender and process for 30 seconds. Apply immediately to clean skin and leave on for 5-10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.

Makes 1/2 cup.

  1. Wow, I have all of those things! It's a sign!

    (I bought the coconut oil to make some homemade Magic Shell, but I think I can spare a tablespoon. It's probably put to better use with a face mask anyway :))
