DIY 2-Ingredient Hydrating Face Mask

Wave goodbye to dryness and peeling with this ultra-nourishing face mask!

The skin on your face is delicate and precious, and should be treated as such! Unlike the rest of your body, which you cover regularly with protective clothes, your face is always exposed and constantly subject to atmospheric elements like wind, heat, and cold. These conditions can easily strip away essential nutrients and suck the moisture from your face. With hydrating face masks, you can keep your skin’s health in check while flaunting beautiful, glowing skin.

With just two common kitchen items, this hydrating face mask is a snap to mix and incorporate into your weekly beauty regimen. If your skin is prone to dryness or peeling, don’t break the bank investing in store bought moisturizers or masks! Avocado and olive oil form a killer combination that will quench your thirsty skin with super-hydrating, ultra-nourishing properties.

Key Ingredients and Why They Work:

1. Avocado
This fabulous fruit does more than nourish you from the inside. With high levels of vitamin E and unsaturated fats, the avocado has incredible skin benefits that easily measure up to professional facial treatments. The oils in avocado pulp penetrate the skin deeper than most oils and promote increased collagen synthesis. It’ll keep your face looking and feeling radiant as your skin drinks up the avocado’s vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

2. Olive Oil
Olive oil is a marvelous moisturizer and your ticket to silky-smooth skin. The superfood works magic with its regenerative power over skin tissue and ability to dissolve dirt, oil, and other impurities. Olive oil infiltrates the layers of your skin and washes your pores. It’s an awesome solution for both oily and dry skin.

What to do:

1. Use one small ripe avocado and ½ cup olive oil.

2. Mash avocado until creamy.

3. Mix ingredients together until paste has reached a smooth consistency.

4. Apply a thick layer of the mixture to your face.

5. Let the mask sit for 12-15 minutes.

6. Rinse the mixture off with warm water and enjoy your soft, radiant skin!
