Make Your Own: Creamy Avocado Facial

This is easy to whip up & a great face mask for natural skin revitalising!
This recipe uses fresh avocado, which is a great fresh treat for dry, dull-looking skin. Avocado nourishes & conditions the skin & is naturally rich in Vitamin E.

This recipe also includes soothing honey & Sweet Orange Essential Oil, which is a natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids to encourage healthy new cell growth & help to renew skin tone.

You can edit the recipe to your own tastes, ie) add some ground almonds for a scrubby mask, or Lavender Essential for spot-prone skin.

Ingredients: (makes enough for approx. 1 treatment)

1/4 mashed ripe avocado

1/2 teaspoon raw honey

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon Avocado Oil

Mix & mash your ingredients together, till you have a creamy consistencey.
Spread thickly over your skin & leave for approx 10 minutes.
Rinse off with warm water. When your face is properly clean, finish by splashing with cold water, to close your pores & pat dry.

Have fun! :o)
