Tip: Before applying a mask to your entire face, test it on a small area of the skin to ensure you are not sensitive to it.

Moisturizing Avocado + Egg White Face Mask

This effective face mask combines three superfoods— avocado, egg white, and lemon.  Rich in healthy fats, antioxidants, and a variety of vitamins and minerals, avocado hydrates, softens and firms skin, while reducing redness and inflammation. Meanwhile, egg whites shrink pores and tightens and tones, as the lemon juice helps heal and brighten your complexion. When you combine these three ingredients in a face mask, you get a powerful remedy for dry, oily, or acne prone skin.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 egg white (room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Combine the ingredients and use a whisk to mix well.

How to Use: Evenly apply the face mask to your clean face, avoiding the eyes. Let it dry for about 30 minutes; then rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a towel.

Use a wooden spoon to mash the banana in a small bowl. Once smooth, mix in the honey and cinnamon.

  • 1 probiotic capsule (optional)

In a small bowl, split open the probiotic capsule and mix it into the Greek yogurt.
