Because of its high nutrient content, avocado is also a popular ingredient in homemade facial masks. Check out these DIY avocado face masks if you want to have smooth, supple and glowing skin.

Super Hydrating Avocado Face Mask

Avocado is rich in healthy fats that help the skin replenish moisture and prevent dehydration. In addition to avocado, this mask contains honey that soothes the skin and relieves inflammation, yogurt that lightens and brightens the skin, and lemon juice that produces an antioxidant effect and gives the skin a healthy glow.

Cut a ripe avocado in half, remove the pit and scoop the flesh into a blender. Add 1/3 cup plain yogurt, 1 tbsp lemon juice (preferably freshly squeezed) and 2 tsp honey. Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Apply the mixture to clean, dry skin of your face and neck and let it sit for 20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and follow up with your regular toner and moisturizer.

Exfoliating Oatmeal Avocado Face Mask

This is a 2-in-1 face mask that gently exfoliates the skin and helps keep it hydrated. It is perfect for the cold months when your skin needs very delicate exfoliation and extra nourishment. As you might have guessed, the mask contains rolled oats that slough off dead cells from the skin surface and avocado that provides the skin with nutrients and locks in moisture.

Scoop the flesh of half of a ripe avocado into a small bowl and mash it with a fork until smooth. Grind 1 tbsp rolled oats in a food processor and mix them with the mashed avocado. Add 1 tbsp honey, 1 tsp coconut oil, 1 tsp lemon juice, and 2 drops of essential oil of your choice (for example, chamomile, lavender or tea tree). Mix well until all ingredients are combined. Apply the mixture to your skin, let it sit for 20 minutes, gently massage your face with your fingertips and rinse the mask off with warm water.

Scoop out the flesh of a ripe avocado into a bowl and mash it with a fork until there are no lumps. Add an egg white and mix with the mashed avocado. Apply the mixture to your face, leave it on for 20 minutes, wash off with lukewarm or cool water.
