DIY Beauty Fridays: Avocado Face Mask (Dry Skin)

Photo courtey of http://www.drgranny.com/
Masks are my absolute favorite product to treat my skin with.  Not only do they make your skin feel and look amazing but they buff away flakiness to reveal a more radiant complexion.  And, masks do absolute wonders for your skin during severe weather conditions. 

For those not living in Vancouver, I should explain that our winters consist of rain.  I say rain but I literally mean torrential downpours spanning the course of weeks, and if it's really bad, months.  However, this year has been quite different.  One day you wake up and the weather is sunny but extremely cold/dry and the next day it'll be slightly warmer and raining.  (We've even had wind storms and snow which doesn't happen too often.)  Needless to say, this crazy weather is making even my normal/combination skin extremely dry.  Hence the need for avocados....

Avocado Face Mask

1/2 medium ripe avocado
1 TBSP honey
1 TBSP yogurt (again, use the all-natural greek kind)

Remove avocado from skin and mash (to form a thick paste) in a bowl.  Add in both the honey and yogurt and mix well.  Apply mask to cleansed skin and let sit for 15 minutes.  Rinse off with warm water.

Why this works?: Avocados contain a deep penetrating vegetable oil that is perfect for dry skin.  They are also chalked full of nutrients and vitamins which make your skin healthy and radiant.  The addition of yogurt (or lactic acid) actually smoothes and softens the skin all the while tightening and wrinkles and refining pores!

Try this out ladies!  Even if you don't have dry skin, it's a great way to relax after all the shopping you're doing this weekend....ha
