This recipe is easy enough to do at home. Once a week it's a good idea to give your pores a deeper cleaning to unclog and condition. Avocado nourishes and conditions, ground almonds gently remove dead skin cells, olive oil and honey improves skin's elasticity and helps protect against moisture loss and citrus refreshes your skin. 

 

All you'll need for one face mask:

 

-1/4 cup mashed ripe avocado 

 

-1/2 teaspoon honey

 

-1 teaspoon finely ground almonds

 

1/2 teaspoon olive oil

 

-1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

 

-6 drops sweet orange essential oil

 

In a bowl, combine the avocado and honey, blend together. Stir in almonds and olive oil. Add the lemon juice and the orange essential oil. Mix to a creamy consistency. Use immediately. 

 

Spread thickly onto dry skin, avoiding the sensitive area around your eyes. Leave on 10 minutes, then rinse off with warm water, massaging as you rinse. Finish by splashing your face with cold water, to close the pores and pat dry.
