Nourishing facial mask - Skin Care Recipes

A nourishing facial mask must have ingredients that provide the skin with agents that restore it and moisturize it at the same time. It has to have vitamins and proteins in it.

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.
