Mud Mask Monday - Avocado Style!

MUD MASK MONDAY
** Avocados **

I’ve always felt like Mondays were a good day to detox and get back in your rhythm. My personal Monday morning routine starts with a cup of coffee, a mud mask and a short social media scroll. After I wash my mask off I immediately feel rejuvenated and ready for the work week. My skin is happy, my spirit is lifted and my day is officially ready to start!

Most ‘mud’ masks are formulated for one of two things: Oily skin or dry skin.
Today’s mask is for those of you with skin on the dryer side. Let’s hydrate!

Avocados have a unique nutrition profile. They contain lots of fiber and are rich in vitamins and minerals, such as B-vitamins, vitamin K, potassium, copper, vitamin E and vitamin C – all which aid in healthy skin. Avocados provide an antioxidant effects that help to neutralize cell free radicals. Studies have shown that avocado can help improve skin texture, keep premature signs of aging at bay, tone facial muscles and treat dry skin.



I LOVE Avocados. I truly do and could eat them on almost anything. BUT I have a hard time keeping track of them! Who's with me? (Raises hand) I always buy them with good intent but it seems one or two always get away from me and over ripen. It’s always a bummer when you cut into an avocado and it’s brown! No need to throw them out though, try this instead!

MOISTURIZING AVOCADO FACE MASK

1 Ripe Avocado

1/2 tsp Avocado Oil
(You can skip this if you don't have any - but I highly recommend investing in some! Amazing for your skin! I've been told it's the next Coconut oil)

1 Egg White – room temperature

1 Tsp Lemon Juice

 

DIRECTION

Mix the ingredients together well. You can use the whisk to whip it if you don’t want clumps. Scoop a small amount at a time and apply evenly on clean face, avoiding the eyes....and mouth if your sipping on coffee! 

Let it dry for about 20 minutes. Rinse your face thoroughly with warm water and get ready to have an amazing day! Be yourself, be kind, kick ass! 

See you next Monday! 

*CAUTION – with ANY scrubs or masks, please do a test patch and make sure you are not sensitive to it. If your skin turns red, rinse the area with mild all natural soap and  warm water. Please remember if adding any essential oils that you bare caution and always use recommended dosage (or less!)*
