Avocado possesses an array of anti-aging benefits. It is rich in vitamins A and E that penetrate deep into the layers of the skin and help to produce collagen. Honey is antibacterial and full antioxidants that leave your skin moisturized and glowing. Coconut oil is rich in medium-chain fatty acids and is the ultimate moisturizer.
- 1/2 a very ripe avocado
- 2 Tbs honey
- 1/2 tsp coconut oil
Mash or puree avocado until smooth and creamy then blend in other ingredients. Apply to face and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Wipe off and then rinse face with warm water and apply your favorite moisturizer.
Avocado is also amazing for the complexion when eaten so use half for the mask and eat the other half!
Use a homemade mask like this once a week in combination with your regular skincare regimen. Check out Botanical Babe's facial care here.
