Make your own DIY homemade face mask filled with natural goodness to nourish your skin cells. Avocado and egg white is a perfect combo for oily, acne-prone and combination skin. While avocado hydrates, nourishes and moisturizes skin; egg white tightens pores, has oil control action and lifts up sagging skin. Let's take a closer look at why avocado and egg white are great for skin.

IngredientBenefits for Skin

Avocado

Superfood rich in multivitamins and minerals including vitamin E, healthy fats and natural oils. Nourishes, hydrates and preserves moisture in skin cells. Prevents premature aging by fighting off free radicals that cause wrinkles and fine lines on skin by stealing oxygen from healthy skin cells. Contains antiinflammatory properties that help heal acne and inflammatory skin conditions.

Egg white

Rich in protein, multivitamins and minerals, egg whites nourish and hydrate skin. They contain a potent ingredient known as lysozyme, which destroys acne causing bacteria by digesting their cell walls. Tightens skin and shrinks large pores. Lifts up sagging cheeks. Fights free radicals, which cause premature aging.

How to Apply the Face Mask

  1. Wash your face with a mild cleanser to remove all traces of makeup and dirt. Use warm water to open up pores. Pat dry with a clean, soft towel.
  2. Using clean fingertips, slather a thick coat of the avocado egg white face mask onto your clean face using a gentle circular motion. Avoid the area around your eyes and your mouth as skin here is very thin and sensitive, and if stretched by the mask, fine lines and wrinkles can appear.
  3. Let the mask sit on your skin for 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. When the time is up, rinse off the mask with cold water. Pat dry with a clean towel. Moisturize with olive oil if needed. Now take the time to marvel at the silky, soft feel of your skin!

Top Tips

  1. Gather your hair away from your face into a ponytail, and wear a headband to protect your hairline.
  2. While waiting for the mask to settle, you can lie down and relax, soak in a bath or pamper yourself with a pedicure.
  3. Allow the egg white to reach room temperature before applying it on your face.
  4. Before using any face mask on your face, always use a test patch on your inner elbow to ensure you're not allergic to any of the ingredients.
  5. Feel free to use any extra face mask mixture on your neck, hands or cleavage. Throwing it away would be a total waste. You can store this face mask mixture in the refrigerator for up to five days. If you notice any funky smells, though, you can dispose of it.

What a great idea for a mask! I'm thinking that avocado being so rich in nutrients it will smooth out the skin very well with all of those emollients, while the egg white will prevent it from being too greasy and provoking breakouts.

Hi Wanderings,

I also woke up this morning to unexpected breakouts on my cheeks, ugh! This is following my heavy fast food indulgence 2 days ago...connection? For sure!

Yogurt, lemon and honey face masks are actually more effective in soothing, preventing & getting rid of acne.
