Avocado Face Mask Recipe
First of all you have to remove the pit from half an avocado and the remaining fresh should be scrapped out of the peel and place it into a bowl. By using a fork you can mash the avocado until it becomes creamy and free from lumps.
You have to add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice into the avocado that you has been mashed if you want to save some or all of the paste in order to use it later. Lemon juice avoids the avocado from turning brown and oxidizing.
The avocado paste should be mixed with a couple of optional ingredients that you pick to include in your face mask such as a raw egg white, ½ orange juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon honey. Even though avocado mask is effective when created with avocado alone, a couple of these ingredients have additional properties which will make your skin health certainly if your skin complexion is oily.
Your face should be washed by using warm water in order to remove cosmetics, dirt or other accumulated debris. The oil of avocado mask will be absorbed by the clean skin more readily instead of skin which is coated with other substances.
Use a thin layer of avocado puree into your face by using your fingertips. And then you have to avoid contact with your hair and eyes.
You can wait for about 15 minutes to leave avocado facial mask on your face or until the mixture dries.
You can remove the mask by cleansing your face by using warm water gently. And then you have to prevent scrubbing the mixture off of your skin. It is well recommended for you to splash your face by using cold water once you are removing the paste if you want to close the pores of your skin. The finishing touch is you can dab your face by using a towel.
