DIY Hydrating Avocado Mask

Even though it’s a nice 70 degrees in LA, my skin still tends to get dry during this time. So once in a while, I like to use this DIY mask my sister taught me to keep my skin soft & HYDRATED! Don’t forget to pin these steps to your pinterest so you can always use this mask on a rainy day!

Ingredients: 

1 egg white

1/4 avocado

1 tsp plain yogurt

Step 1

I like to use a ripe avocado for this mask as it’s softer & easier to work with. Using a spoon, carve along the lines to take out the avocado. 1/4 of an avocado is enough for this mask .. but feel free to double the recipe if it’s you’re doing it with your roommate or bestie!

Step 2

Using a spoon, mix the avocado until it becomes a smooth and lump free consistency. This is where using a ripe avocado will make this step easier!

Step 3

Here comes the tricky part .. filtering out the egg white. Egg whites are high in protein and is not only great for nourishing your body but your skin as well. Practice separating the egg white from the yolk separately before doing it over your avocado mixture if it’s your first time!

Step 4

I know, I was confused about this step initially too. Why yogurt? But plain yogurt is actually really great for your skin. It has acids in it that can smooth and fight discoloration. Add in a tablespoon to your avocado mask to not only reap in the benefits of yogurt but to give your mask a smoother texture.

Step 5

Mix mix mix!

And….voila!

Now that you have your mask ready …use your fingers to apply a generous amount of the mixture onto your face and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Then wash off with lukewarm water when the time is up and pat your face dry with a towel.

 Enjoy your fresh and HYDRATED skin!

  • Mmmm avocado!!!! Haha, I’m afraid I’d eat it before I actually make it. 😉 But I really would love to try this soon! My skin gets extremely dry to the point that it hurts when I smile IF I don’t hydrate with good creams+lotions. Thankfully my mom always gives me the best Korean+Japanese sample packets and I pretty much use those. Thank you for this tip, and these photos are strikingly beautiful. <3

    This looks great to try! If using 1/2 the avocado instead of just the 1/4, do you use more egg white and avocado? Thanks for the beauty tip!

  • Vivian says:

    Great idea to use avocado in a mask! Sounds so moisturising~

    I would want to eat all those ingredients instead haha. But if you want to know a way to separate the egg yolks from the whites, just get an empty plastic bottle.
    Steps:
    – Get an empty plastic water bottle
    – Crush the bottle & hold it there so that there’s a little air pushed out
    – Suck the egg yolk by releasing your hold on the bottle, therefore creating a vacuum where the egg yolk can be displaced

    For the kitchen noobs out there, I hope that helps in making this delicious mask!
