Avocado Mask For Face and Hair

Healthy and glowing skin always comes from within, depending on food habits, lifestyle, stress scale, etc. However, we always have the option to boost skin radiance or maintain healthy skin by putting a bit of an extra effort. Therefore, in my opinion, home remedies come handy in every way.

If you are following me on my social media, you must have seen my green face rocking this avocado mask. I love avocado, in my breakfast, with salad, in my drinks (avocado milk smoothie one of my favorite) and in so many other ways. Today I’m going to share with you guys how I use avocado as a mask for my face and hair.

Avocado Mask


  • A few slices of ripe avocado
  • 1 tbs organic honey
  • 2 tbs lemon juice

***you might need more according to your need and hair length.



Mash avocado using a spoon or your hand, make a smooth paste. Stir in honey and lemon juice into the paste. Slather the paste onto your clean face and hair. You don’t need to put a thick layer of the mask but concentrate on spreading the juicy extract. Let the mask sit for 15 minutes and then gently massage the face for 2 minutes if the mask feels dry add lemon juice to thin it down. Wash off with warm water then rub some ice to close your open pores. Pat dry and finish with your favorite toner and moisturizer.
If you applied the mask in your hair then you might want to jump off to shower. Rinse off the mask thoroughly followed by your regular shampoo and conditioner.

Avocado Mask


Avocado contains vitamin A, E, C and many other nutrients that help to keep skin moisturized, hydrated and smooth. Honey contains the antibacterial and antiseptic agent that specifically helps to fight inflammation or if you have acne issues. Natural fruity acids of lemon work effectively on reducing dark spots, pigmentation and enhance skin’s natural glow. Just like the mask work on the skin it also works great on locking moisture on the hair body and restore shine and volume.
This mask with all three ingredients proven to me as a supreme source of moisture and many other benefits without any sort of side effect. The unique properties each of them contains works together to feed your hungry skin directly and efficiently.

I love to wear this avocado mask at least once a week, you can use 2/3 times a week if you want or according to your skin need. It’s been always amazing to see the transformation (refreshed and glowing skin) after every use of the avocado mask.

    Thanks for reminding me to use avocado again. The weather has been so unpredictable here, freezing morning and very hot afternoons. It is getting to dress and the worst part is that my skin gets all dull by the end of the day. This mask will help me with my natural skin glow :)

    My first time to see an avocado being used as face mask. This is interesting though.

    This looks like a great mask. I’ve heard so many people using avocado but I’ve never used it in a mask. I’ll have to try soon

    Nice tips! I love avocado too, but never thought of using it as a mask. I once tried apple and yogurt but can’t really take the food smell on my face. >.<

      I can totally relate to your feeling, specially when its yogurt :P but avocado you might like because it doesn’t smell that funky and lemon smells refreshing. do give it a try if you can :)

    will it be okay if my honey is not organic? i’m starting to look into these homemade hair mask recipes recently, after learning how to read the ingredients off the commercial products’ bottles. i was horrified when i realised the 2nd ingredient listed was alcohol!

      well, yeh non-organic honey will work as well. I mentioned organic because those tends to be pure (often non-organic honey contains added sugar and some other ingredient that cause allergy, actually I faced allergic reaction by myself. Yet that might not happen to you, my skin is quite sensitive).
      Agree with you, it is always safer to use natural product.
