Avocado Face Mask

January 6, 2012

I got this avocado face mask from my friend Purvi from Zaaina Skincare.

This avocado face mask is really easy to make.

I like to run a beautiful bath with essential oils, cut a couple of slices of cucumber, make this mask, slap it on my face, and then relax in a soothing bath for 30 minutes while I let the avocado work it’s magic on my face.

The powerful anti-aging combo of Vitamin C and Vitamin E is what the magic of avocados can offer your skin. The good high fat content moisturizes your skin, and prevents future drying, which can help your skin maintain that youthful glow. The natural sterolin found in the oil can reduce age spots, heal sun damage and scars, and increases the collagen in your skin.

I find this recipe makes enough for 3 people. So share it with a friend before it oxidizes! You will have a very slight tingling sensation and the mask will harden slightly while on your face. Rinse thoroughly with a damp face cloth, and moisturize.

Check out the almond pulp scrub and organic moisturizer recipe that I make with my girlfriends every Christmas.

  1. Such a great site. Glad a friend made me aware of it tonight. The photo for the Home Made Organic Avocado Face Mask From Zaaina Skincare alone is reason enough for a positive comment. 😀

    1. Thankyou SO much for your lovely positive words of encouragement. I really appreciate it.

  2. Really appreciate all your sharing….for our insides and outsides
    Thank you very much

  3. Hey I just found this site and it seems very helpful. I have acne allover my face, I have tried many soaps, cleansers and creams but nothing works. I want to try out your home recipes for my face and I hope it works on me. Please advise me on which one would be best to use. My skin is oily. Thanks in advance.

    1. Thanks. I admit I am not a skincare expert, and different things work for different people. I would be nervous to suggest something that may aggravate your existing condition. Consult a naturopath, aromatherapist, natural aesthetician etc for more expert advice.

  4. I use avo oil in my home made sugar scrubs – equal parts sugar and avo oil. Brilliant results. I’m an actress in my late twenties but being short, my career has been made playing children mostly.
