What to do next

Once you have all the ingredients and tools you will be needing put the avocado and the honey together into a bowl. Mix the two ingredients together well until you have a paste like mixture. Rinse your face with warm water first and then gently pat dry. Your skin can absorb the vitamins in the mask when your skin is clean. Then use the paint brush to apply the mixture evenly onto your face. Let the mask sit for about ten minutes. When you are ready to remove the mask use the wash cloth to clean the mixture off your face.

The benefits of using Avocado and honey in a face mask

Both avocado and honey are loaded with vitamins that are great for your skin. Honey is easily absorbed into your skin and has natural anti bacterial qualities. This combo makes it easy for honey to clean deeply into your pores. Avocado is packed with oils that give your skin a wonderful resilience to damage and locks in moisture. Honey softens the bond between new skin cells and dead ones making it easier for new healthy skin to grow. These are some of the major reasons why this face mask works so well.

      there is also another remedy for this. You can also mix one half of an avocado with 2 scoops of plain greek yogurt. Leave that on for about 5-10 minutes. afterwards, hop into the shower, and rinse your face off. you will have a soft new face

      I'm going to try this soon. I usually eat avocado, but I have some that will go to waste if I don't use it soon, and I love trying out new natural masks.

      Thanks for sharing this information!
