Avocado facial mask recipes - hydrating dry and sensitive skin

These two avocado facial mask recipes were given to me by my friend Joan who spends most of her time gardening, exposed to sun on a daily basis.

Benefits of avocado are numerous: it is filled with monounsaturated fats, Vitamin B and Vitamin E, nutrients excellent for moisturizing and rejuvenating dry or tired skin. Additionally, there is almond oil known as a strong emollient or moisturizer.


First recipe is for Avocado Face Mask for Dry and Sensitive Skin

Ingredients:

1 avocado

3-4 drops of almond oil

Preparation

  • 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

Ingredients:

1 avocado

1 teaspoon of apple vinegar

1 egg white

3 teaspoons of olive oil

Preparation:

  • Peel and mash avocado and start adding the rest of the ingredients. Egg white should be beaten before you put it in.
  • When the mass is done, apply to face and wash off after 20 minutes or so.
  • This mask provides great moisture for skin, making it soft and elastic.
I alternate using both of these masks weekly and really like the results that I get. I also recommend them to all my friends who like sun tanning, they are an excellent way to replenish the moisture of the skin after a long day in the sun.
