It is very nice to have a free evening to pamper yourself. Because I don’t usually have a lot of free time just for myself I love to use it properly. I decided to dedicate every Thursday to pampering and share my tips with you. So, you are reading my first official Pamper Yourself Thursday.
THE AVOCADO FACE MASK
This magic green fruit is not useful just in the kitchen. Avocado is one of those fruits that can easily be used on skin. It is full of vitamins (A and E), calcium, iron, sodium, potassium, zinc and nourishing things that can help skin in so many different ways. Plus, it is budget friendly.
It is full of antioxidants which help fight against free radicals which attack your skin cells and cause it to age. And so by using avocado, we can say we can fight the time. Wow, how’s that for a superpower? ;)
It is also full of unsaturated fats which make wonders on oily, acne prone as well as on dry and sensitive skin. It is also suitable for male skin :P.
It provides skin with moisture and keeps it glowing and young.
I would like to share my recipe for great homemade face mask.
I love to use it on my face, but sometimes I add some sugar and use it as a scrub on my neck and chest.
You will need:
- Half avocado
- 1 table spoon of yogurt
- 1 tea spoon of honey
- Some lemon juice – if you have oily and acne prone skin
- 1 table spoon of olive oil - if you have dry skin (I love to use olive oil in the winter time, when my skin needs something more to keep it moist because of cold weather.)
- Squish avocado with fork than add all other ingredients.
- Mix together.
- Apply on clean and dry face and leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse it off. Enjoy the younger you. :)
