Avocado Rejuvenating Skin Mask

The Amazing Benefits of Avocado  For Your Skin

Avocados are rich in healthy fatty acids and antioxidants that are amazing for your skin. I will discuss some of those perks and give you a homemade Rejuvenating Avocado Mask recipe that is super easy to whip up!!

So what are those amazing benefits I am talking about??

1. Vitamin C- for skin vitamin C is needed to create collagen and elastin, which bind skin cells together and help maintain their firmness and structure.

2. Vitamin E- it assists in preventing free radical damage from breaking down fats in your skin cells that lead to aging skin. 

3- Antioxidant Carotenoids- these are alpha carotene, beta carotene, and lutein; along with a few more. These free radical compounds provide amazing protection for your skin from the environmental damage that leads to fine lines, wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. Studies have shown that high amounts of carotenoids in your diet can improve skin tone and general appearance.

4- Moisturizing Monounsaturated Fatty Acids- an omega-9 fatty acid in avocados is linked to regenerating damaged skin cells and reducing facial redness and irritation. This is done by maintaining moisture in the epidermal layer of your skin, helping to make it soft and hydrated.

Now that we know some of the benefits to avocados, we can see that making a mask with avocados is an excellent choice!!

This can be used for all skin types and should not be made in large batches. Only make what you need at the time. 

Rejuvenating Avocado Skin Mask

2 tablespoons diced avocado
1 teaspoon raw organic honey
1 teaspoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon plain Greek yogurt

Combine all ingredients into a small bowl and mash. Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Smooth onto a clean face and leave for 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel. A moisturizer should not be needed after application, but if you prefer to use one, go ahead.
