Avocado Facial Masks from Di

Now, you all have fun (g).... Compiled from the 'net:

Carrot, Avocado, and Cream Nourishing Mask

1/2 cup heavy cream
1 carrot, cooked and mashed
1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and mashed
3 tbsp honey

Combine ingredients in a bowl.

To use:
Spread over your face and neck. Relax for 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water and pat dry.

Save the avocado pit. It is a wonderful massage tool. Simply rub it and roll it against your skin to soothe tired muscles.

Cucumber Avocado Facial Mask

1/2 cup chopped cucumber
1/2 cup chopped avocado
1 egg white
2 tsp powdered milk

In a blender combine all of the ingredients until they form a smooth, paste-like consistency. You can apply the mask immediately or refrigerate it for 30 minutes.

Apply 2 tablespoons of the cucumber avocado mask to your face and neck in circular upward motions. Leave the mask on for 30 minutes, or until dry.

To remove the mask simply rinse your face and neck with warm water, followed by a cold water rinse. Finally, pat dry your face and neck.

Egg Yolk, Avocado & Mud Facial Mask (best for oilier skin types)

Clay or fuller's earth mud is available in powder form at any health food store. Mix 1 tablespoon dry clay with 1 egg yolk, 1/4 of a mashed avocado and enough witch hazel to create a smooth mixture. Mud dries excess sebum while the egg yolk and avocado replenish lost moisture. Witch hazel tones.

(Inputer's Note:
As an ex-potter, I can attest to clay masks for oily skin as working well. I used to spread clay slurry from my potter's wheel on my face while making pots. I got a facial as I worked. laughing...)
