Rejuvenate your skin with avocados

Rejuvenate your skin with avocados

I LOVE avocados! They're one of nature's most powerful fruits. And because I love them, I'll never waste one!  So when you have an avocado that's gone a bit too soft to eat in your salad, either make it into guacamole or alternatively use it as a face mask!

 

Rejuvenating skin masks are one of the oldest forms of beauty treatments. In ancient times, across many lands and cultures, women have applied many simple and exotic substances on their faces in order to keep the skin smooth, silky, beautiful and protected from the elements.

 

The delicate skin of the face is particularly affected by the elements - both in winter and summer and a good face mask can work wonders to replenish vital moisture, vitamins and minerals. So if you've got some mushy avocados left then here's what to do with them!

 

Avocado Mask

There's more to avocado than guacamole! Avocados are Mother Nature's skin moisturizer. With their healthy fats and phytonutrients, they offer remarkable benefits to human skin - both when eaten and when used topically. Avocado oil has been used extensively for its ability to heal and soothe the skin. This use is based on the high Vitamin E content of the pulp and oil, which may help dry skin.

 

This nourishing mask utilizes the amazing avocado to supply your skin with a whole range of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and softening agents to fight winter dryness. For years, people have used avocado as a natural facial treatment, especially for dry skin. It’s so easy to make yourself at home!

 

1. Remove your makeup and wash your face with warm water.

2. Mash the flesh of an avocado with a fork.

3. Add a touch of coconut or extra virgin olive oil and mix.

4. Apply this smooth, natural mixture onto your face.

5. Take 5 – 10 minutes to relax and unwind while the mask nourishes your skin.

6. Rinse off with water and enjoy your new radiant skin!

 

    What are you waiting for? Get mashing!

     

    Rejuvenece tu piel ¡Con Aguacate!

    ¡Me encantan los aguacates! Son de las frutas más nutritivas que existen en la naturaleza, y precisamente porque me fascinan nunca los desperdicio. Cuando tengas un aguacate que ya esté demasiado blando para usarlo en tu ensalada, ¡lo puedes usar para hacer un rico guacamole o también puedes hacer una nutritiva mascarilla facial!

     

    Las mascarillas faciales son la forma más antigua de tratamientos de belleza. Desde hace muchos años, las mujeres de diferentes culturas y países usaban sustancias simples y exóticas en sus rostros con el fin de mantener su piel hermosa, hidratada, tersa y protegerla del sol, la lluvia, el viento y los factores ambientales.

     

    Una buena mascarilla puede hacer maravillas para ayudar a la piel del rostro que es la que más se expone al ambiente a recuperar su hidratación y aportarle de nuevo vitaminas y minerales. Así que si se te quedaron por ahí algunos aguacates maduros, ahora te diremos qué hacer con ellos.

     

    Mascarilla de Aguacate

    ¡Hay mucho más que hacer con el aguacate que sólo guacamole! El aguacate es un hidratante natural, contiene ácidos grasos esenciales y fito nutrientes que ofrecen grandes beneficios a la piel tanto si lo comes como si lo usas sólo tópicamente. El aceite de aguacate se ha utilizado ampliamente por su capacidad para curar y aliviar la piel, esta cualidad se debe al alto contenido de vitamina E en la pulpa y el aceite del mismo, la cual ayuda a reparar la piel seca.

     

    Esta nutritiva mascarilla utiliza las propiedades del aguacate para darle a tu piel una gran cantidad de vitaminas, minerales, antioxidantes y agentes suavizantes que ayudarán a tu piel para que se proteja de la resequedad del invierno.

     

    ¡Es muy fácil hacer tu propia mascarilla de aguacate!

    1-Lava muy bien tu rostro con agua tibia.
    2-Muele la pulpa de un aguacate con un tenedor.
    3-Añade un poco de aceite de coco o de aceite de oliva extra virgen y mezcla.
    4-Aplica esta natural y suave mezcla sobre tu rostro.
    5-Espera de 5 a 10 minutos mientras te relajas y la mascarilla nutre tu piel.
    6-Enjuaga con agua y ¡disfruta de una piel radiante y humectada! ¿Qué esperas? ¡A moler aguacate!
