Avocado Face Pack Recipe



Start with a clean face. Avocado is a good cleanser, even then start with a clean skin. 😛

Massage gently with soft strokes using a tiny amount of the mask you have prepared.

After massaging leave the face as is for few more minutes. Once you feel everything is dried up, apply the remaining portion of the face mask throughout the face. This time apply a thick layer of the mask.

Now leave for 20 minutes and wash off with warm water.

Guaranteed glowing skin. Dry skin feel moisturized, oily skin feels stickiness reduced, damaged old skin feels soothed. What more can you ask for! Avocado is suitable for all types of skin.

Just that you have to make sure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients you use.
