Avocado facial treatment

   The avocado is known for its antioxidant properties as well as for its moisturizing and anti-aging virtues; thus, it is widely used in cosmetics to protect the skin. I suggest you to try this easy, inexpensive, and beauty revealing face mask to give back to your skin a healthy glow and a younger-looking feel.

For 2 applications you will need:
-        Half a ripe avocado
-       1 tsp of baking powder
-       1 tbsp of honey for dry skin
Or 1 tbsp of lemon juice/ rose water for oily skin
Or 1 tbsp of olive oil for normal skin

1- Put all the ingredients in a food processor until the mixture becomes homogeneous.
2- Apply on entire face except on eyelids.
3- Wait 15 minutes, then rinse off.


Personal feedback:

 A feel of freshness

 A radiant glow

 A softer touch

-This avocado based treatment could also be applied over your scalp and hair in order to nourish the roots, strengthen it, and give your hair a silky touch.
-Instead of the baking powder, the honey, and the olive oil, add 2 tsp of yogurt (which is a natural hair conditioner) and 1 tbsp of lemon juice.
-Apply before shampoo and keep for at least one hour.
