DIY: Avocado Face Mask with a Twist

Since my 'health kick' at the start of this year I've become obsessed with avocado's! Now they are quite high in fat (the good type) so one avocado is around 225 kcal, not the best option for low calorie meals BUT their goodness out ways the fact that they are slightly higher in calories. Well I think so anyway :)

Avocado's are full of minerals, such as iron, potassium, calcium, sodium, copper and magnesium. They also contain vitamins A, E, B and K. Resulting in them not only being fantastic for you to eat but also great to use as part of your skincare routine! There's certainly no debating or long lists of ingredients to look through to check if this face mask is natural and good for you - it has two ingredients. Both of which are natural.

1) Avocado
2) Lemon

Just mash them together and apply to your face, as you would any shop bought face mask. The lemon is good for your skin but also stops the avocado going brown.

The title of this post is 'avocado face mask with a twist' and so far it's similar to any other avocado face mask recipe out there. Now I'm not claiming this idea is mine, in fact you may already know about this, but I only just found out about this ingenious idea and I love it, so I had to share! The stone of the avocado shouldn't be thrown away - it's the perfect, smooth massager for your face (or body). Ok, so the stone can be quite hard to hold, it's one slippery thing but it's so smooth and rounded it makes for the ideal gentle massager to really work the face mask in. Honestly, if you've not tried this - you should! It's so relaxing and free! (Well once you've bought the avocado to eat/make a face mask with).

Are you going to have a go at this face mask/massager combination?

Feel free to leave me a comment :)
