Avocado Skin Care for Dry Skin

Here are two options for treating dry facial skin, both using avocado. The recipes are very simple to prepare and use.

Facial Masque 1

Use the following ingredients:

  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 1 egg white

Mash the avocado into a thick paste and then add the egg white. Apply the paste to the face and leave it on for about 15 minutes. Next, rinse the paste off with lukewarm water.

Facial Masque 2

This is a slight variation of the above recipe, but the avocado is still the star.

  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil

Mash the avocado into a paste and then add vegetable oil and mix well. Apply the paste to clean skin and leave on for about 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water to remove the paste.

Banana and Avocado Masque

This is a great homemade skin care recipe for sensitive skin. It is also great if you have dry skin. The following ingredients are required:

  • 1/4 mashed ripe avocado
  • 1/2 mashed ripe banana
  • 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt (not low-fat)
  • 1 teaspoon of wheat germ oil

All of the above ingredients should be mixed thoroughly. Next, the mixture is applied to the face and left on for 10 to 15 minutes. After the recommended time period, rinse the face with tepid water.

Creamy Avocado Mask

Mash up 1 tablespoon of a ripe avocado. Next, add 1/2 teaspoon of honey and mix both together. Stir in a little almond meal until the mixture is creamy. Apply the creamy mixture to clean skin and leave it on for about 15 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water.

Avocado Hand Treatment

This recipe focusses on avocado skin care for the hands. Here is the ingredient list:

  • 1 mashed avocado (always nice and ripe)
  • the juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup of plain yogurt
  • petroleum jelly

Mix the avocado, lemon juice and yogurt together. Slather the mixture over the hands and leave

on for 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse off. This will gently slough off dull skin and will gradually fade those ugly looking age spots. After rinsing, put on some petroleum jelly and then wear white cotton gloves for one hour or overnight for maximum hydrating.

Cleanser Masque

Use the following ingredients:

  • 1/4 ripe avocado
  • 1/2 cup of buttermilk
  • 1 beaten egg yolk

Blend the avocado with the egg yolk and buttermilk. Apply to the face and throat skin areas and

leave on for about five minutes. Reapply the mixture and leave on for another five minutes. Finally, rinse off with warm water and pat the face dry with a clean towel.
