We’re big fans of the humble avocado. Not only does it taste delicious (try it chopped over chilli or mashed on toast – yum), but avocado is also packed with good fats that are essential for healthy skin, hair and nails and a whole load of potassium to make you feel great, too.

Because of its reputation as a skincare superstar, many beauty products now contain avocado to moisturise, add radiance and soothe skin. Now, we love a good face mask as much as the next skincare obsessive, but why shell out on something you can make at home? Here’s our quick and easy homemade face mask recipe – just don’t eat it all first!

 How To Make An Avocado Face Mask

Homemade Avocado and Honey Face Mask

A luxurious, natural face mask to smooth, hydrate and brighten your skin.

You’ll need

½ avocado

¼ cup uncooked oats

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon lemon juice

 

The method

  • First thing’s first, grab your bathrobe and make this a real home spa experience

  • Mash the avocado in a small bowl then carefully add the rest of the ingredients, combining until you have a thick paste

  • Apply to your face, taking care around the eye area

  • Relax for 20 minutes while the face mask gets to work!

  • Rinse with warm water and wipe away residue with a flannel

  • Follow with a rich moisturiser to seal in hydration

This is a simple face mask that uses ingredients from your kitchen cupboard – why not get creative and try a few variations? Swap the oats for coarse salt to create an exfoliating mask, or add some coconut oil for an extra moisture boost.
