How to Make Avacado Facial
- 1Wash your face with warm water to remove any dirt, cosmetics or other accumulated debris. Clean skin will absorb the avocado mask's oils more readily than skin coated with other substances
Mix all ingredients until smooth.
Apply a thin layer of the avocado puree to your face with your fingertips, avoiding contact with your eyes and hair. Continue rubbing the paste onto your skin until your face is fully coated.
- 2Leave the avocado mask on your face for at least 15 minutes or until the mixture fully dries. The longer you wear the facial mask, the more chance your skin has to absorb the mixture's nourishing nutrients.
Remove the mask by rinsing your face gently with warm water; avoid harshly scrubbing the mixture off of your skin. FatFreeKitchen.com recommends splashing your face with cold water after removing the paste in order to close your skin pores. Dab your face with a towel to dry.
Do not apply an avocado mask to your face if you have a known skin allergy to avocado.
