Ultimate Face Moisturizer: Avocado Honey Yogurt Mask
St. Patty’s Day has us eyeing spring, but we’re not done with winter just yet. Dry, cold air can wreak havoc on the loveliest of faces. To combat irritated winter skin you need to moisturize. A great way to do that is to use a hydrating mask once a week. Even acne-prone skin needs moisture, as dry, flakey skin can actually lead to more breakouts. If you’re pregnant, you may actually be experiencing both issues at once. If so, than this DIY avocado honey green mask is perfect for you.
Whip up an Avocado-Yogurt-Honey Mask. It is easy and chock full of blemish fighting but nourishing, moisture-rich ingredients. Avocado hydrates your skin with healthy unsaturated fat without clogging pores. It also brightens dull skin and sooths inflammation with Vitamins E, C, and B vitamins. Yogurt also adds moisture while combating acne-prone skin with lactic acid (a natural exfoliant). Honey is a natural humectant that contains anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
