Simple avocado face masks for all skin types

The avocado face mask is a haven of skin benefits, but we knew that already, didn’t we? Ever since humankind first discovered the wonders avocados can do for our health, it’s been a nonstop race to discover more and more practical uses.

 Classic Recipe

  • ½ ripe avocado
  • 2 tbs. hot water
  • 1 tsp. honey

Mash the avocado with a fork. Dissolve the honey into the hot water and then mix it in with the avocado. You can apply the mixture using just your fingers, though we recommend a brush for better control. Keep it on for 10 minutes and then rinse off with lukewarm water.

Avocado and Yogurt Face Mask

  • ¼ ripe avocado
  • 1 tsp. plain organic yogurt
  • ½ tsp. honey

Mash the avocado with a fork. Stir in the yogurt and honey until you form a paste. Afterward, apply using your fingers or a special brush and then leave on for approximately 10–15 minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water. Good for those with acne or dry skin.

Avocado and Oatmeal Face Mask

  • ½ ripe avocado
  • ½ cup oatmeal

Prepare the oatmeal according to instructions. Mash the avocado with a fork and combine with oatmeal. Apply to skin, keep on for 10–15 minutes, and then rinse off with lukewarm water. Good to help hydrate dry skin.

Avocado and Apricot Face Mask

  • ½ ripe avocado
  • ½ ripe apricot

Mash up the avocado and apricot separately and then mix together until you get a pasty texture. Apply to your face for 30 minutes — or as an overnight mask if you need extra nourishment — and rinse off with lukewarm water.
