Avocado season means....

.....avocado face masks, of course!

Dominica has the most amazing Avocados. They're huge and in abundance here! So, I decided to try my hand at making an Avocado face mask. Why would I want to do this? Here is a little information gathered about Avocados and how they help our skin:

"Avocado contains Vitamins A, K, B6, C (ascorbic acid), folate and potassium and helps hydrate dry and sensitive skin, but is also great for any type of skin. Avocado facial mask makes the skin soft, smooth, fresh and healthy. Both vitamins A and C from the avocado fruit are known to control the signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines."

The recipe for an avocado mask:
1 Avocado
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 Tablespoon oil (they suggest almond oil, but any oil you have in your kitchen will do)

What to do:
Step 1: Mash up the avocado until it has a smooth constancy.
Step 2: Add the Honey and Oil to the mashed Avocado
Step 3: Rinse your face  clean, and pat dry.
Step 4: Apply face mask and let it sit for 25-30 minutes
Step 5: Wash off face mask and enjoy!

You might look a little goofy....

Apparently I need some work on Step 1

...but the end product is baby-butt smooth feeling skin! This is such an inexpensive way to take care of your skin, so why not try it? If you do, let me know how you like it!

* The recipe makes enough for about 6 mask applications.


  1. Jealousss! The US has a serious avocado issue. They're too effing expensive. But perhaps I'll try this next time they're on sale :)

  2. LOL, KEN!!! I know somewhere deep down, you want to try this. Or, maybe not.

    Heather ~ I seriously found an Avocado almost as big as my sons head!! Word of advice: When you do your mask, be sure to do a much better job of mashing the avocado than I did! I was lazy and don't have a blender, but the more mashed it is the more goodies from the Avocado get into your skin!

  3. Achieve a smooth skin by using products without harmful ingredients.
