Yesterday I tried a DIY avocado face mask. As y'll know avocados are great for you. They are super rich in vitamins and minerals, especially Vitamins A and K which will brighten the skin. This mask also should be moisturizing & nourishing, which is suitable for people with a normal to dry skin. Since I have a combination dry skin I wanted to try it out and see if it's really that good. Homemade masks are usually inexpensive and everybody can make it because it's easy as well ^___^.
All you need is:
- 1/4 medium ripe avocado
- 2 tbsp. of honey
- a bowl
- a fork or a mixer
- a brush
Step 1: Clean your face.
Step 2: Put the 1/4 avocado into a bowl and mash the avocado with a fork or put it in the mixer.
Step 3: Add 2 teaspoon of runny honey and keep mashing the avocado.
Step 4: Apply the mask with your brush. Spread a thick coat of the mask on your face and leave it on for at least 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and a washcloth.
Well, did this mask really work for my skin? To be honest, I didn't like this mask at all. It did feel fresh at the beginning and it did make my skin soft afterwards but NOT moisturizing. After I washed it away with warm water it not only felt dry, it was itchy as well! I think that I'm allergic to something somehow o__O'. It was quite weird, because I'm not allergic to anything normally. This is the first time that I tried an avocado mask and my skin didn't feel good at all. Thankfully, I didn't get a break out from it though. My sis had also tried this DIY mask before but it felt moisturizing and soft on her skin =/. Hmmm... have you girls tried this homemade mask before?
