Here’s an avocado face mask recipe that’s a great natural treatment for acne, dry skin, and aging. There are a lot of acne treatments on the market but they can be harsh and drying. The saying that you shouldn’t put anything on your skin that you wouldn’t put in your mouth is one that holds a lot of truth.
In addition to avocado, the mask also contains raw honey. Raw honey has natural antibacterial properties that will help to fight the bacteria that causes acne.
Avoid using tap water in the mixture because it may contain unwanted contaminants that you don’t want on your skin and may be high in mineral content which can be drying. Use low mineral content distilled or spring water if possible.
Apply the mask several times per month or as often as you like.
1/2 cup raw avocado, mashed
1/2 cup distilled or spring water
1 tablespoon raw honey
Mash the avocado in a bowl until a paste is formed.
Add honey and water and mix.
Apply mixture to clean, dry face and leave on for 30 minutes.
Rinse face with distilled or spring water.
