One ripe avocado
Cut and store the unused portion.
In a bowl, mash the avocado with a fork until all the clumps are gone.
The natural oils in avocados increases production of collagen, preventing the skin from aging. Avocados also brightens skin and reduces age spots.
Add honey and Greek yogurt.
Honey cures acne, dry skin and also soaks up impurities from your pores. While Greek yogurt has natural alpha hydroxy acid, that helps smooth and exfoliate skin. It's also great to put on sunburns. 😉
Apply mixture to face and neck for 15 minutes. Wash, dab dry, and enjoy your silky smooth skin.
I usually don't have any leftovers, but if you do.. Squeeze a few drops of lime juice in the mix and throw it in the fridge. Lime juice will keep it from turning brown. It'll stay fresh up to 3 days.
If you have a lot of ripe avocados, you can make a big batch and freeze it.
Spoon them into ice cube trays and cover with plastic wrap. Throw it in the freezer overnight.
Place the frozen cubes in freezer safe ziplock bags. It'll be fresh for up to 3 months. When you want to do a mask; simply take a cube out and let it thaw for 10 minutes.
