Hydrating Face Mask

What you’ll need:

  • Avocado (gives your skin excellent hydration)

  • Honey (is anti-inflammatory so your skin doesn’t flare up)

  • Cocoa Powder (natural and soothing antioxidant)

Grab your avocado. You’ll only need 1/4 of it, so you can use the rest later. Take your 1/4 and mash it up in a small bowl. Next, get 1 TBSP cocoa powder and 1 TBSP honey and stir them both into the mashed avocado (you may need to mash a little more but that’s okay).

Next, make sure your skin is clean and dry (remove all makeup before applying). Apply the mixture all over your face and leave on for 10 minutes. Then rinse and moisturize as usual!

That’s it! Easy right?! Such a fun and easy way to pamper your skin either alone or with your girlfriends!

Happy hydrating!
