Whether you’re getting ready for a hot date tonight or just looking for a quick pick me up to fight the bitter winter cold, this avocado glow mask is just what you need!
This time of year tends to be the most brutal for your skin due to the harsh environmental conditions. With this in mind, being attentive to your skin and investing a little more time in making sure it’s hydrated and supple is key!
In addition to being delicious, avocado is an incredible asset to have in your beauty arsenal. It is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids like omega-9, vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and a ton of skin protecting antioxidants.
So what does this mean in layman’s terms? In short, avocado has been proven to help prevent wrinkles, moisturize and hydrate your skin, and slow down visible signs of aging. Yet another amazing benefit of the scrumptious little fruit is its high levels of oleic acid. Yes, the word acid sounds harsh, but this component is great at regenerating damaged skin cells, reducing redness and irritation! Oh, and the vitamins are super helpful in making sure your skin maintains its firmness and structure.
Now, for the fun part. Here’s what you’ll need for the mask:
- 1 whole avocado
- 1 tbs of olive oil
- 2 tbs of plain yogurt
- 1 tbs of honey
Next step, mix it all up! It will resemble guacamole–which is totally fine–but you can also stir it until it’s a consistency that appeals to you. The vitamins, antioxidants, and fatty acids in this mask are readily absorbed when extracted from a raw source like the fruit.
So what are you waiting for?
Get ready, get set, get glowing!
