DIY Avocado Mask

Read about DIY-ing your next girl's (or family in general) night in from our Walnut Creek marketer Mariel Thompson!

Sheltering-in-place has made us more resourceful than ever.  We are getting creative in the kitchen with our meals. Why not beauty products?  My daughter, Mia, researched homemade mask recipes using ingredients we had on-hand.  Just like that, our house turned into a make-shift spa!

  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tbs. honey
  • 1 Tbs. coconut oil (or your preferred oil of choice)

There are lots of recipes variations online. I opted for less abrasive ingredients for their sensitive skin. No lemon, etc. Many people react differently to coconut oil. Some folks swear by it and others steer clear! Feel free to swap it out for a different one in your pantry or a face oil you have in your beauty cabinet.

We melted the honey and coconut oil first. Then we blended with the avocado in a food processor.  You can also mash by hand. Our mask had the consistency of Ghostbuster slime which was fun for Emiliana to spread all over my face.  Not only was this a fun project to do together, it worked really well! Our skin was soft and supple after this.
