Instead of mashing avocado for your guacamole recipes, try mixing them with lemon juice and oatmeal for a moisture boost. Avocados add back oils to our skin through their fatty acids and vitamin E, D and E oils. Not only will you find this mask soothing from the oatmeal, but the lemon juice will also polish off the dead skin on your face.
-1 small ripe avocado
-1 tsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice
-1/3 cooked oatmeal
Mash a ripe avocado in a small bowl with a fork.
Mix in the freshly squeezed lemon juice
Stir the oatmeal into the mixture until you form a paste.
Take an old foundation brush and smear the mask onto freshly cleansed skin. Let it sit for 10-20 minutes.
Take a hot washcloth and wipe off the mask to reveal moisturized and smooth skin.
Apply your favorite moisturizer.
