Avocado is an exotic and tasty fruit that has many benefits for the skin. Rich in Vitamins A, D and E, potassium and magnesium, it has antioxidants and moisturizing properties, leaving skin soft, smooth and plump. And it’s great for conditioning hair too! Here are a few recipes you can try at home:
1. Simple Avocado Facial Moisturizer
– 1 ripe avocado
Mash the avocado until you get a creamy consistency. Apply on face and neck and leave it on for about 15 minutes. Rinse off.
2. Avocado and Honey Facial Mask
– 1/2 avocado
– 1/2 cup of honey
Mash the avocado into a creamy consistency and then stir in some honey. Apply the mixture on your skin and wait for about 10 minutes. Wipe everything off using a cool washcloth.
3. Avocado hair conditioner
– 1/2 ripe avocado
– 1/2 cup of mayonnaise
In a bowl, mash the avocado and add mayonnese. Mix the ingredients together. Apply the mixture on damp hair and wait about 20 minutes before rinsing it off.
– For homemade recipes, choose only avocados that are ripe.
– To make sure that avocados are ripe, simply squeeze them in your palm. Ripe avocados would split open and reveal soft innards.
