6 Avocado Face Mask Recipes You Can Make At Home

There are only a handful of foods that can improve your skin regardless of whether you eat them or apply them directly. Avocado is one of them and our personal favorite. Whether you slice it up and put it on your salad or apply it on your face as an avocado face mask, this fabulous fruit can work wonders. Avocado is particularly potent when used topically because the healthy ingredients like potassium, folic acid, biotin, calcium, and vitamins B5, B6, C, K, E, and A can directly benefit your skin. To help you harness the natural wrinkle-fighting power of the avocado, we’ve created six avocado face mask recipes you can make at home.

NOTE: For the recipes below, you’ll need to peel the avocado first and remove the pit. The easiest way to do this is to cut the avocado in half. Set the half without the pit aside while you remove the pit from the other half. To remove the pit, first scoop the fruit and pit out of the peel with a spoon, then cut the avocado in half again and remove the pit with your hands.
