Avocado Lemon and Honey Mask

It's Sunday facial mask time again!! I recently fell in love with the way my skin feels after I make a relaxing mask with a bit of honey in it. My face feels super soft and nourished and I noticed my skin looks a bit brighter. Here's my recipe for an avocado lemon and honey mask that I hope you enjoy as much as I do (blush face emoji...lol!) After mixing the ingredients I put it on my face and sat for 20 minutes. I felt a very nice tingle after ten minutes. After rinsing, my face felt smooth and looked great!



I used:


avocado- moisturizes, reduces the appearance of wrinkles

honey- antibacterial, soothes, moisturizes
lemon juice- natural astringent, mild bleaching properties

Who knew this natural ingredient had so many benefits! Here are four reasons to include honey into your beauty routine:





  • Acne: Honey is naturally antibacterial, so it's great for acne treatment and prevention.
  • Aging: Full of antioxidants, it is great for slowing down aging.
  • Complexion boost: It is extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create a glow.
  • Pores: Honey is clarifying because it opens up pores making them easy to unclog.
I found it easier to use a muddler than a spoon or fork. I was really able to get a good mix and squish out any large clumps of avocado. I used a brush to apply the mask to my face, but you could use your fingers. I liked the control I got when I used the brush and I was able to get the mixture in the hard to reach places like the corner of my nose and right under my eyes. 

Let me know what you think of my avocado lemon and honey mask recipe! I'd love to hear from you!
