  2. Spread a thin layer on your skin, and let it be for 20 minutes. N
  3. Wash it off with lukewarm water.


This avocado and cucumber mask is a great remedy for acne treatment. When the two are combined, they can help clean out skin pores and avoid breakouts.

  1. Take 1/2 cup of avocado pulp and mix with two tablespoon of cucumber juice.
  2. Clean your face and then evenly apply the mask over your face. You can also place the cucumbers slices over your eyes as well.
  3. Lie down for 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Wash the mask off with lukewarm water and pat it dry.


If your skin is dry to an extent that you feel itchy from the dryness and roughness, try this oatmeal and avocado mask. Oatmeal helps heal, soothe, and relieve itching and avocado, which is a good source of vitamin E, is full of natural oils that will hydrate and moisturize the dry skin naturally.

  2. Spread onto your face.
  3. Let it sit.
  4. Wash off with warm water and pat dry.

Egg White and Lemon Juice

  1. Beat the egg white until frothy.
  2. Take out the avocado pulp and mash it.
  3. Mix the two together with one teaspoon of lemon juice.
  4. Apply a thick layer to your face and leave it on for 20 to 25 minutes.

        Hello Shayma,

        I am glad you tried these homemade avocado masks and feel brighter! Me too love to use natural things on my skin.

        The fine lines or marks you are talking about are normal. They get on the body when a person grow or gain weight quickly. You can massage the affected area gently in circular movement to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Exfoliating will also help in removing the excess skin cells!

        I almost always have avocados on hand at home (love them, so yummy!!). Often though, they go bad before I have a chance to eat them so turning my "too ripe to eat" avocados into a face mask sounds like a great way to use them up (I hate having to throw food in the garbage!).
