Avocado facial mask

Avocado hydrates and nourishes the skin. It is ideal for dry skin, although it can be used for normal skin type too. It is filled with Vitamin E which restores the skin’s surface and it improves the skin’s texture overall. Vitamin E is also a strong anti-oxidant which helps in reversing the aging process or diminishing the effects of it.
