Avocado-for-face-&-hair

Yes Yes this post is about how avocado mask can be used to get silky hair and baby soft skin. If you are following me on my instagram, you must have seen my face slathered in avocado. It was not accidental. I love eating avocado, in my breakfast, with salad, in my drinks (avocado milk smoothie one of my favorite) and in so every other way possible.

Did you know that, alongside being a super nutritious food Avocado is also great to maintain healthy hair and nourished skin.

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.

Home remedies are more like eating some and at the same time slathering some on the face or hair. I infect find it fun at times.

Anyways, here is how I use avocado mask for hair and skin...

The recipe below:

Avocado Mask

Ingredients to make the Mask:

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

***you might need more of everything if you have long hair hair length. For the face mask usually a moderate layer of the mask does its job.

 

How to use Avocado mask:

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 on the skin for 15 minutes. Then gently massage the face for a couple of minutes more. In case 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 follow with your favorite serum or even just the moisturizer.

I would normally apply the mask at the same time when I’m using it on the face. By the time I’m finish with my face mask the hair gets the enough time to lick the avocado goodness. When I feel I’m done with the hair mask I straight hop on the shower.

The honey gets sticky when dry so it’s very important to rinse off the mask thoroughly.

When the hair is clean I simply follow with the regular haircare routine, the shampoo and conditioner. After blowdrying the hair, viola, super soft and silky hair every time!

Avocado Mask benefits for Hair and skin

Avocado benefits in haircare and skin:

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 the same way nourishing the hair body while restores hair shine in no time.

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. When these three delicious ingredient works together they’re bomb to skin and hair food.

I’ve been finding myself applying Avocado mask quite often lately just because it makes my hair feel so soft and shiny! However, home remedies are good if used 2/3 times a week according to the hair/skin need.

    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!

    1. 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.

  3. 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. >.<

    1. I can totally relate to your feeling, specially when its yogurt ๐Ÿ˜› but avocado you might like because it doesn’t smell that funky and lemon smells refreshing. do give it a try if you can ๐Ÿ™‚

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚
