Avocado face mask

Buy Avocados from the plantation

Avocados are good for your skin and a great source of antioxidant carotenoids like alpha carotene, beta carotene, beta cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin and lutein. These free radical quenching compounds provide significant protection for your skin from the environmental damage that leads to fine lines, wrinkles and other visible signs of aging.

High amounts of carotenoids in your diet have been shown in scientific studies to improve your skin’s density, thickness, tone and general appearance.

Butternut squash is another high antioxidant food that’s also well worth adding to your diet for better skin.

My recommendation: Avocado face mask

This face mask freshens your complexion, and is ideal for normal and slightly dry skin. Peel and stone the avocado. Blend with the lemon juice into a creamy paste. Apply the mask to cleansed skin and leave on for about 15-20 minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm water. This cream is also excellent for hand care. Simply pour the cream into a small plastic bag and seal well. Cut off a corner of the bag and squeeze out the required amount of cream. The cream will keep fresh for 4-5 days in the refrigerator. Great for dry winter skin!
