Avocado's Pore Refining Mask

September 8th, 2010

Face masks are a way to give your skin a boost of radiance even if you have a great skin already. And masks containing avocado are particularly popular with skin care gurus because they are rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins A, D and E and potassium – also known as the youth mineral.

The avocado has been a beauty secret since the times of the Mayan, Aztec, and Incan royals. They used the avocado in numerous beauty aids such as the rejuvenation of the skin, to help reduce eye puffiness, smooth frizzed hair, and much, much more.

And of course, other than applying avocado on your skin, consuming it in salad form can also be beneficial for your skin, helping you keep that youthful, healthy glow.

Here are a few simple avocado recipes for beautiful skin now.

Avocado for Skin Care

Avocado for Puffy Eyes

This works so well you won’t believe it! Just slice a peeled avocado into quarter-inch crescent-shapes. Lie down with a few slices under each eye and rest for around 20 minutes. The nutrients will seep into your skin and you’ll love the results!

Moisturizing Avocado Facial Mask

This facial mask is useful for dry skin. Mash half avocado and 3-4 drops of almond oil. Apply it on your face and relax. Keep it on for about 15 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water.

The Rejuvenating Avocado Mask

Mash half avocado and add 1 tbsp of organic honey. Honey has the ability to kill germs on the skin and can reduce swelling and inflammation, giving the skin a taut and youthful appearance.

Avocado’s Pore Refining Mask

Stir in organic yogurt with your mashed avocado. Yogurt is a natural and gentle exfoliating cleanser. It contains lactic acid, which soothes and softens the skin while tightening wrinkles and refining pores.

As you can see there are many ways you can use avocados for great skin and perhaps this is why many have name it “green gold”.
