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!
