Making the Mask

This is a mask that requires a little bit more work than most, but in the end is greatly worth it. Using this mask once a day for five days will clear the majority of a breakout and make your skin feel smooth and refreshed. Now that we know what our ingredients to lets get to making our mask.

Because I like a very creamy and smooth mask I like to put all my ingredients directly into my blender.

  1. Take your avocado and cut it in half. Take the pit out and scoop the avocado out. I like to go ahead and cut the avocado inside the skin once I half it so when I scoop it out it is already diced and ready to be mashed.
  2. Peel your banana and cut into piece and add to your avocado.
  3. Next peel and grate your carrot into thin stripes and add to your blender
  4. Once you have your banana, avocado, and carrot in your blender and add your honey, lemon juice, and apple cider vinegar into the blender and set to chop until smooth
  5. Once your mixture is smooth set your blender to puree for until creamy. Pout into a container and walha! You have a multipurpose face mask!
