If you wish to know about the avocado mask benefits and to get some facial mask recipes - check this site out!
The avocado contains vitamin E , vitamin C (ascorbic acid), Pantothenic Acid (which moisturizes the skin and prevents its aging) and essential fatty acids that treat the dry skin thoroughly.
As you can see, avocado mask can benefit your skin in many ways, but keep few things in mind:
- Some of the people are allergic to avocado and other ingredients of the facial mask recipes below. In general - you should check your body for any skin allergies before applying any homemade mask, as you do with skin care products that you purchase in the store.
- For the best effect use organic fresh avocados; that way you'll get the most vitamins, minerals and natural acids out of the ingredient.
- Apply the mask recipes up to twice a week, so your skin ph balance won't be hurt (this applies too, to all the mask recipes and products).
- You can use the avocado alone for the facial, but if you want to add some extra vitamins - see the recipes below.
