Avocado face mask recipe from our resident natural skincare expert

By West Norwood Therapies Team, Jan 18 2017 11:00AM

Here comes another yummy face pack for natural, healthy skin from our resident skincare expert, Veronica Massa.

This month's recipe is for dry skin. perfect for the winter months, when the skin tends to dry out and de-hydrate due to cold, wind and also central heating.

All the good and nutritious lovely fruits in your kitchen can actually be used, with effective results, also on your skin! Face packs are a gentler version of face mask. They work in a similar manner by improving circulation, cleansing, tightening and nourishing the skin. Face packs are more porous than face masks and allow the skin to breathe, so they can be left on much longer.


AVOCADO FACE PACK with few variations to suit your skin type.


Mash the flesh of a ripe avocado (only what you need, a quarter or half should be enough depending on size) using a fork. Apply it to the skin and carry on reading your book...... in 30 minutes your skin will have absorbed all the precious nutrients it needs and will feel soft and velvety! Rinse your face with lukewarm water, use cotton wool balls dipped in water if you prefer.

It is recommended to tone your skin with Rose Water (Purity Rose Toner by Massaholistics is a high quality flower water blended with antioxidant, rejuvenating plant extracts).

For combination skin:

Add to the avocado 1 tablespoon of natural yogurt and mix to a smooth paste. Again, apply to the skin and leave for 30 minutes. Rinse your face with lukewarm water.

For ageing skin:

Add to the avocado 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 beaten egg yolk and mix (or only the honey if you prefer). You can also add a teaspoon of olive oil or other cold pressed vegetable oil of your choice. Apply to the skin and leave for 30 minutes Rinse your face with lukewarm water.
