These are two face masques I have done and the outcome.
(Hannah O. told me it probably would, but with my common sense I didn't think that applied to MY skin-- it did. So maybe when Hannah O. talks about skin, you can find out if yours could handle the avocado)
The second masque I tried was the same steps, but with a banana. This one made my skin feeling soft as well, but no itch whatsoever!
Easy enough? Told you I like simple!
All that's left is to apply it to your face, and let it sit while you get on with your life for the next 15 minutes.
I prefer to watch a good TV show on Netflix (Wonder Years is a good amount of time), or for the more go-getter's you can fold those clothes, or unload the dishwasher.
When you clean it off, I HIGHLY recommend using a warm wash cloth. It is 1000x less messy and way easier.
That's it! You are just fifteen minutes away from enjoying super soft skin :).
I found both these online (thanks Pinterest, you rock) because I was having dry skin and these both help hydrate your skin. Both masques left my skin feeling soft and hydrated... You can't go wrong, but because the avocado made me itchy, I prefer the banana masque. I say this as a fellow licensed Pinterest expert, not a skin care expert, but I asked Hannah O, our actual skin care expert to weigh it! See what she has to say below.
Hannah O. Says:
Avocado oil is used in lots of beauty products from moisturizers and masques to hair dye and body butters. However, for some people, the actual avocado fruit can cause there mouth, lips or throat to be a little itchy and this is just from the pollen in the the fruit. This oral allergy should be harmless, but if you begin to become too uncomfortable, wash off immediately and consult your doctor.
When using any produce for a masque try and buy fruits that are in season and if possible organic. You want to use the best, most active ingredients you can.
