Every bride-to-be knows that a facial is a definite must for beautiful, glowing skin on the big day. But that doesn’t require a spa appointment. You can let your natural beauty shine through by making your own face mask at home.
An avocado and honey face mask is a great, all-natural way to get your skin in wedding-day shape, without having to schedule a pricey spa treatment.
Why do avocados work for your skin? They contain amazing moisturizing properties and enriching nutrients that your skin soaks right up. Avocados contain 4 percent of your daily value for vitamin C, which is important for your skin. Plus, avocados contain 4 percent of your daily value for vitamin E to fight off free radical damage.
The use of avocados as a skin treatment is far from being a new beauty trend; it’s actually a tradition that has withstood the test of time. The Mayans recognized the power of avocados as a skin care remedy and used them in their face masks to enhance the beauty of their skin. To this day, women in Mexico continue that time-honored custom by using avocados to moisturize their skin and protect it from the effects of the hot, dry climate.
Brides can learn from this custom and use an avocado face mask as their secret skin-soothing weapon for their big day.
Ready to get your all-natural glow? To make this face mask, all you need are two simple ingredients that you always have on hand at home: Avocados from Mexico and honey. Adding just a touch of honey to the recipe helps your skin retain all of the moisturizing benefits that avocados deliver. And by applying avocados to your face as a mask, you’re allowing all of its enriching vitamins and nutrients to penetrate your skin.
Mash the avocado in a small bowl, add honey, and mix. Apply to face and rinse after 10 minutes.
