Avocado, egg white and
lemon juice face mask
This facial mask is especially good for those who suffer with oily skin and may produce Acne because of it.
Egg whites are great antioxidants and astringents, lemons are rich in Vitamin C and remove oils gently without overly drying out your skin (due to their balanced pH level), while avocado exfoliates and cleanses naturally.
1 ripe organic avocado (not brown or over-ripened)
1 organic egg, separated (to use only the white / yolk may be used on hair as a conditioner. See recipe here.)
1 teaspoon organic lemon juice
Cut avocado in half and remove pit. Scoop out the green meat and place in a glass bowl, and mash using a fork.
In a separate small bowl, beat the egg white until frothy. Gently fold in the avocado meat and lemon juice.
Apply a thick layer over face avoiding the eye area (the mix is not harmful but lemon may irritate the eyes) and leave on face for about 20 minutes.
Rinse with warm water and allow face to air dry.
*Discard after use, do not keep balance as avocado will begin to turn brown and rot quickly.
Know your ingredients: If you can't pronounce them, don't eat them or put them on your skin! Always try to buy the best; remember than an organic facial mix is less expensive than a pharmaceutical one.
