Avocado is definitely one of natures superfoods! Rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E, powerful carotenoids and fibre, including avocado in your diet has shown to support cardiovascular health, promote a healthy immune system and may also protect against some forms of cancer. But it doesn’t end there. Avocado is also hugely beneficial for the skin, working to reduce redness and inflammation as well as add moisture back into the skin, which is why so many face moisturizers and cleansers include avocado extract or oils in their products.
If you have dry or oily skin, then this mask is for you! The avocado base will not only hydrate and smooth your skin, but will also work to regulate sebum production as well as remove any impurities from the pores.
Rich in vitamin C and a natural antiseptic, the addition of lemon juice to the mask also works to tighten pores and fight against acne, while the egg white will work to tighten and whiten skin and will also help to set the mask.
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- 1 egg white
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
Mix all ingredients together with a fork until smooth, or alternatively whiz together in a food processor. Apply to your face and relax for 15-20 minutes. Remove with warm water.
NOTE: Beware this mask can get messy, so make sure you wear old clothes and apply the mask lying down, or get a friend to help you.
