It is a natural way to balance the oil production of your skin and moisturize.

Why Include Avocado In A Face Mask Recipe?
Avocados can be great for topical application because they contain a high level of antioxidants and are proven to have a beneficial effect on the skin.
Avocados have a high level of linoleic acid, which can help reduce dryness and protect against sun damage.
They also have a high water content which nourishes the skin and can help improve circulation, making them great for aging skin as well as anyone trying to maintain healthy skin.

Avocado Face Mask FAQs
Love the idea of a homemade avocado face mask for glowing skin but still have a few questions.
I’ll try to answer them here!
1. Can You Use An Avocado Face Mask Every Day?
Since the avocado mask is made with healthy food ingredients it should be fine to use every day, BUT…. if you notice any negative changes in your skin be sure to cut back.
2. Can Avocados Remove Dark Spots?
Possibly! Avocados are rich in antioxidants and fatty acids and contain nutrients including vitamins A & E which can improve skin health by producing new, healthy cells and restoring natural collagen which helps your skin look radiant.
3. How Long Do Homemade Face Masks Last?
If you have leftover mask ingredients, you can store them in an air-tight container for 1-2 days. Be sure to add a thin layer of cold water or extra lemon juice on top of the avocado mixture, then seal it well, this will help the avocado stay green and fresh. Just drain the extra water or lemon juice before use and it should be ready to use.
If you notice a funny smell, something doesn’t look quite right, or you are questioning if the mask ingredients are still good- be sure to throw it away and make a new batch.
