avocado face maskOkay, I know… It’s not really the season for avocados. The one’s I’ve been buying from the store have been rock hard one day and then seemingly way too soft the next.  But, avocados are so healthy for your skin! If you eat them and if you smear them (gently) all over your face.

Avocado is rich in healthy fats and vitamins that soften rough, dry or flaking skin. Avocado contains essential fatty acids and other nutrients that help prevent premature wrinkling. Hello! 43.7 year old woman here! 

So for this wonderfully moisturizing (and yummy – if you’re into that kinda thing, I always taste stuff. Don’t judge) here’s what you’ll need.  Oh, by the way I adapted this recipe from 7 Beauty Tips.avocado

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 tablespoon Pompeian oil
  • 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey

Peel and mash the avocado really well with a fork. Add oil and apple cider vinegar. Mix until all of the ingredients are combined. apply this mask on your face with your hands. Keep it on your skin for 15 minutes then rinse off with lukewarm water.

So, what makes it so good for my skin?

POMPEIAN OIL

Olive oil, along with the other oils in the Pompeian oil, contain powerful antioxidant that can help retain the beauty of your skin, help heal skin diseases, and make your skin tighter and firmer. Also, it penetrates deep into the skin and wont clog your pores like other oils.
