Try an Avocado Mask!

Benefits of avocado are numerous: it is filled with monounsaturated fats, Vitamin B and E, nutrients excellent for moisturizing and rejuvenating dry or tired skin.
First recipe is for Avocado Face Mask for Dry and Sensitive Skin

1 avocado
3-4 drops of almond oil

◦Peel and mash avocado and add almond oil until the mass is consistent.
◦Apply to face while massaging it gently
◦Let it rest for 30 minutes and rinse off with warm water.

Before you move on to the next mask, here is avocado trivia for you:

Can you answer this? Is avocado a fruit or vegetable?It's a fruit :) For some reason, I always thought it was a vegetable.

On to the next facial mask.

Moisturizing Avocado facial mask recipe

1 avocado
1 teaspoon of apple vinegar
1 egg white
3 teaspoons of olive oil

◦Peel and mash avocado and start adding the rest of the ingredients. Egg white should be beaten before you put it in.

◦This mask provides great moisture for skin, making it soft and elastic.
