Most people love eating avocados (in salads, as guacamole, and on sandwiches), but did you know that you can use Amazing Avocados for DIY beauty treatments too?!
Not only is this delicious fruit (yeah, you read that right, a fruit) high in nutrients (when consumed), it’s emollient and vitamin-rich properties make it an equally fantastic at-home, natural skin care and hair treatment.
The fruit is known to improve heart health, aid in weight loss, and provide a good source of vitamins B, C and E. Besides all of the internal benefits, avocados have received a well-earned reputation for keeping skin looking young, beautiful and moist. This makes it especially beneficial for people who are looking to combat dry or aging skin. That’s where the Amazing Avocado Face Treatment comes in handy.
Here’s how to whip up a batch of this super-powerful Amazing Avocado Face Treatment:
- Peel 1 ripe avocado.
- Scoop contents (avocado flesh) out into a small bowl.
- Mash thoroughly with a fork or spoon until smooth consistency.
- Mix in 2 tsp. of honey: Moisturizing and soothing honey is good for dry skin. [The Body Shop Book]
- Apply mixture to clean face and leave on for 20 minutes.
- Wash face and gently pat dry.
