Honey Avocado Mask

Avocados are great for your skin. They're rich in fatty acids, vitamins and protein. This mask is fine for any skin type, but if your skin is dry you can add some extra moisture by including coconut oil.


Honey Avocado Mask


Place the following ingredients in a blender and mix until you have a smooth paste. If you don't have a blender mash the ingredients with a fork until smooth and well combined.

  • 1/2 a peeled avocado
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon plain or Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda (optional)

Spread over face and neck. Leave for 5-10 minutes before rinsing with warm water.

  7. Avocado is one food I really do not like the taste of ... so making it into a face mask sounds like a great alternative use!!

    I too run a blog link up party called #GoingGreen on the first of every month and I'd love it if you would join in with the next one. Off to track you down on social media now! (Found you vis #WasteLessWednesday)

  9. I love avocados but never tried to make a facial mask with them, I am sure they are much efficient and healthy than the commercial ones.

  12. Avocados are so healthy for body inside and outside. I have tried avocado on face and have really liked the results but sometimes they are are to find in our area. I do like your recipes with the honey, baking soda, yogurt and coconut - all of these ingredients are great for the skin. I use coconut oil daily all over my body. Visiting from #WasteLessWednesday. Have a healthy, happy & blessed week. Sharing on twitter & pinning.
