This is one of my lovely wife's concoctions, she suggest this is an old remedy for a really deep cleaning.
She suggest this recipe has a clean, cooling effect, and leaves your skin very soft.

How to Make Avacado Facial

Step-by-Step

  • 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.
  • 3Warnings
    Do not apply an avocado mask to your face if you have a known skin allergy to avocado.
    Avocado can stain fabric, so consider wearing a shirt you aren't particularly attached to when making an avocado facial mask.

    Tips
    Use an avocado that yields slightly when squeezed, which indicates ripeness. Firm, unripe avocados are difficult to mash into the correct consistency for a face cream.
    Consider eating the unused avocado half after making your facial mask.
