We have already had a look at the top 5 detox foods of the moment and Avocado was firmly on that list. But what you might not realise is that avocado can be beneficial to our skin as well as our bodies.
The power of two
You may already know just how great avocado’s and match green tea powder is when used separately, but perhaps you are not completely aware of just how well they work together.
Both avocado and matcha are pretty full of natural antioxidants and when it comes to using it on the skin the mixture is thought to provide a real anti-aging treat for your skin.
The face maskThe ingredient list for this face mask could not be simpler. In fact all you need is:
- 1/4 ripe avocado
- 1 tsp thick honey
- 1 tsp egg white
- 1/2 tsp matcha powder
How to make:
All of the ingredients need to be mixed together with a pestle and mortar (or a fork if you don’t have them) until it makes a smooth paste. It should be cooled in the fridge for 5 minutes before application.
This should make enough for two mask applications. The mixture will keep in the fridge for 2 days. Meaning that you can either share the pampering with someone else or perhaps just have a couple of days’ worth of great looking skin.
How to use:
To apply you simply smooth over a clean face, avoiding the eye area and leave on for ten to fifteen minutes. You will then need to remove with a warm cloth, which will not only open up your pores but will also act as an exfoliate too.
Not only is this mask easy to make but it also is ideal for keeping your skin looking glowing and youthful as well as well-nourished and well treated!
