DIY Fresh Avocado Face Mask

By now you should have all received your September projects (Yay!) which includes 3 recipes in the project instructions (you can still purchase the box here and see the project tutorial here). We thought it would be fun to blog about the third “what’s in your kitchen” recipe that uses two ingredients from your September box and a few ingredients from your kitchen. What can we say? We’re suckers for testing new recipes. It’s kind of our thing =) And a girl can’t have too many face masks right?

This recipe couldn’t be easier and it’s perfect for all skin types. It’s nourishing, hydrating, and could help to improve fine lines. Clearly we can’t stop raving so we hope you like LOVE this mask as much as we do.

 

Handmade Beauty Box makes DIY face masks easy with this simple step by step recipe using ingredients right from your kitchen! Recipe:
1 small avocado
1 egg white
1/2 teaspoon of rice bran oil (substitute olive oil, avocado oil, or sweet almond oil)
1/2 tablespoon of honey
2 tablespoons of kaolin clay

The avocado is full of vitamins and potassium, the honey is a humectant (draws moisture to the skin), and the egg white is an astringent (tightens).

Directions: Cut the avocado into small chunks and use fork to smash the avocado pieces until you have a smooth texture (it’s okay if you have a few tiny chunks). Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until fully combined. Adjust the kaolin clay and rice bran oil quantities to changet the consistency.

Handmade Beauty Box makes DIY face masks easy with this simple step by step recipe using ingredients right from your kitchen! To Use: Apply a generous amount to your clean face, making sure to avoid eyes. Wear mask for 15-20 minutes and rinse with warm water. Make sure to keep the remaining mask mixture in an air-tight container and store in refrigerator (this mask looks a little bit like delicious guacamole, so we suggest labeling it). Use within 2-3 days.
