Get glowing skin with this Hydrating Avocado Face Mask. Made with just two (or three!) simple ingredients, this face mask can be made entirely from kitchen ingredients you already own.It’s officially DAY FOUR of Avocado Week and of course we couldn’t get through the whole week without a little bath and beauty goodness.

If you follow me on Snapchat (thehealthymaven) then you know my deep love for face masks. I come from a long line of women who care greatly about their skin. If my skin can look nearly as flawless as my Mom’s does then I think I can die happy. Okay, that’s vain but for real her skin is perfection.

Not only do I really enjoy my daily skin care ritual, but I also love giving it an extra boost twice a week with some homemade face masks.

Per my go-to esthetician’s suggestion, one face mask is clay-based and the other focuses on hydration: Cue this Hydrating Avocado Face Mask!

Watch as Nikky from HealthNut Nutrition and I put food on our face and treat our skin with this Hydrating Avocado-based Face Mask!

Besides the fact that I’m thoroughly obsessed with face masks, Nikky and I also take any excuse to coat our faces with food…kidding! Clearly I was the only one putting food on my face :p. But truthfully, we both wanted to take the opportunity to highlight that avocado not only is amazing for inside your body, but also for use outside your body.

As we mentioned earlier this week, avocado is high in healthy fats that are incredibly nourishing for your body. And considering your skin is the largest organ of your body, it only makes sense to coat it with avocado…right?!

Get glowing skin with this Hydrating Avocado Face Mask. Made with just two (or three!) simple ingredients, this face mask can be made entirely from kitchen ingredients you already own.We added in some raw, local honey (we’re both obsessed with Beekeeper’s Naturals!) because it has antibacterial properties that helps clean out your pores and it’s also a humectant, which means it pulls moisture from the air and delivers it to your skin.

Oats are an optional add-in if you have inflamed or irritated skin. Oats help to reduce this redness and calm your skin.

Together these ingredients create a natural remedy for treating dry, winter-ravaged skin that could use a little TLC. So get a little wild this week and put some #foodonyourface…yes, Nikky and I are trying to make that a hashtag. Indulge us and get it trending!

    I love this avocado face mask idea–I also made one a while ago except with coconut oil instead of honey!

    Love this idea! I use coconut oil all over my body (face included), so why not try avocado!

    I just loved the idea about using Avocado. The Avocado is not only helpful for skin health. It contains an incredible amount of essential nutrients, including vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants so it even works as a hair conditioner.

    I have never seen anyone do an avocado face mask before. And I thought putting avocados on toast was extreme. It makes sense though, being that avocados are so healthy.
