Just like any other woman, we like to think that wrinkles will stay away from us for as long as possible, when the truth is that something must be done, because hoping may not be as effective as we think.
We’ve talked earlier about how important it is to have a set of rules when taking care of your entire skin, not just the one on your face. Aside from the usual teas, tinctures, and natural remedies that you can purchase online or from any herbal store, there are a few things you can do for your hair that won’t cost you a thing: use natural masks.
Today, we are going to talk about avocado and its amazing health benefits. This fruit is rich in various active constituents and antioxidants, such as vitamins A, B, C, D vitamins, K vitamin, and folic acid, but it can also be a wonderful source of fiber. Avocado contains 60% more potassium than bananas, meaning that you only have to eat a small piece in the morning in order to provide the daily amount for your body.
When added to your meals, avocado can fight osteoarthritis, bone sclerosis, or arterial pressure. However, if your problem consists of livid lips or dull skin, it’s important to know that avocado can also be useful. Let’s see how to use avocado in order to obtain a nice and soft skin:
Avocado mask with olive oil
All you need for this mask is a ripe avocado fruit and two tablespoons of olive oil. Throw these ingredients in the blender and keep them mixing until you obtain a thick composition that needs to be applied immediately to your face so that nothing goes away. This mask is designed for dry skin only, so you may want to avoid it if you wake up with a shiny face looking at you from the mirror.
Avocado and sugar mask
This mask is recommended for oily skin, pimples, acne, and other sebum imbalances. All you have to do is smash the pulp from a ripe avocado or mince it with the blender. Add a teaspoon of ground sugar and gently massage your entire face with it. After a few seconds, stop and leave the treatment work for 20 minutes. Wash it off with lukewarm water and wipe your face with a hint of chamomile extract, in order to disinfect your skin.
Avocado and grapefruit mask
Use this mask to bring relief from pain in case of acne and damaged skin. All you have to do is mix these two ingredients together in equal parts and then apply the composition all over your face. Stay like this for 15 minutes and then remove the mask with a wet cloth or lukewarm water.
Avocado, thyme, and lemon mask
This mask proved to be very efficient when trying to postpone wrinkles for as long as possible. The beauty of it is that you can use it no matter the skin type and that you may also use it for your neck, feet, hands, and so on. Gather the following ingredients: a handful of fresh thyme, half a lemon, and half an avocado fruit. Throw all these ingredients in the blender and let them mix for a minute. When they’ve turned into a thick paste, apply to the affected areas and massage gently. Wait half an hour for the health benefits to be released and then wash the mask off with warm water.
