Avocado face masks are known for nourishing and revitalizing the skin, of all skin types. These natural green wonders are super easy to make from ingredients you already have.
What we put on our skin gets absorbed into our bodies, so let’s make our own face masks from the nourishing ingredients that we put in our bellies!!
Avocados are one of the top healthiest foods on the planet. They are actually a fruit.
Avocados are packed with skin-friendly benefits including critical healthy fats in addition to various antioxidants, multiple trace vitamins

Making a mask is super easy. Start with the ingredients you already have in your home (assuming you have transitioned away from processed foods and added in pure nourishing ingredients).

You only need one or two other ingredients besides avocados to make an effective facial wonder, promoting skin health.

Unfortunately, avocado turns brown fast, so you’ll have to use these masks as you make them.
Collect an avocado and 2 or 3 of the above ingredients you found in your kitchen or bathroom.
You can use a blender (I like Magic Bullet because it is good for these small jobs).
Or you can use a fork to mash the avocado and the other ingredients together in a glass bowl.
- Prepare your mask and place in a glass bowl and walk to the bathroom.
- Wash your face and neck with a pure natural gentle soap.
- Place a warm washcloth over your face for 20 – 30 seconds. This will help open your pores so your skin can take in all the nutritious goodness of the mask.
- Lather on the mask with your fingertips
- Leave the mask on for 10-30 minutes (if you are new to an ingredient, test on
smallpatch of skin first)
- Gently wipe off with a warm moist cloth.
Relax and Enjoy!!
Relax and enjoy what nature can do for your skin.

Don’t stress about an exact recipe for a mask. Take the crazy cost of going natural out of this by using what you have. Enjoy the experience of nourishing your face, body, soul, and your finances.
