Love doesn’t know borders and limits. It is driven by the most beautiful feelings and emotions. It can last forever and become infinite. That is what you feel when you are in love:) I am in love with green smoothie. And I’ve extended my love by not only drinking and eating greens and veggies but also to use them to nourish my skin. Avocado and oatmeal are probably the most often used ingredients in my breakfast, every day. Today they are also making my skin glow because I am having the avocado and oatmeal facemask. How awesome is that??
This is a very easy to make homemade facemask, and is very good for a dry skin (like mine). Most of you guys are probably enjoying the sun and very warm time of the year now. It’s different here where I am, in Australia. Here it is winter and freezing cold. Brr…Either way the avocado mask is an excellent moisturizer and helps to restore skin damage done by the hot summer sun or the freezing winter wind.
There are a few options to make an avocado facemask – to mix avocado with honey and warm water or yogurt or banana and egg yolk. My favorite one is Avocado + Oatmeal. Probably because they are my favorite breakfast ingredients:) Well, actually because it worked the best for my naturally dry skin and it’s not sticky or too messy like the other options. Here is the simple recipe:
- 1 avocado, peeled, stone removed avocado
- 1/2 cup of oatmeal, cooked.
Cook the oatmeal in the microwave or stove top. Peel and mash the avocado. Bring the two ingredients together. Mix until smooth. Apply the paste to your face. Leave for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy. Rinse off the mask with warm water and apply your moisturizing day or night face cream.
Make the mask once a week or more often if your skin feels dry after exposure to the sun or wind.
As always, feel free to leave a comment and let me know if you tried the mask.
Be healthy and fabulous!
