Avocado Face Masks

Avocado Face Masks

The avocado or “alligator pear” is a tree, which is originally found in South and Central America. The fruits are with green skin and in the form of a pear. The avocado is technically a large berry with a big nut inside. It is very nutritious, has a positive effect on blood cholesterol levels, contains fibers and is full of monounsaturated fat.

The avocado facial masks are an amazing source of goodies for your skin. The fruit contains a lot of minerals such as iron, potassium, calcium, sodium, copper, magnesium, etc. It also contains vitamins A, E, B and K. The result of that special cocktail is that the avocado face mask reaches the deepest layers of the epidermis and gives elasticity even to the driest skin.

  • nice thanks how bout one for acne

    • To the poster asking about acne, try a facial with honey and lemon. Take a small lemon wedge and pour a dab of honey on it, slightly squeeze the lemon and rub on your face, avoiding eye area. Add more honey as needed to get a very thin coating. Rinse after 5 minutes. The honey acts as a natural moisturizer and honey disinfects. You can also use colloidal oatmeal (sold by aveeno in a box at your local walgreens) and honey.

  • Whoops, the *lemon disinfects

  • How long can you keep this without it going bad? Thanks!

  • Should this burn my face?
