Hi there!

I'm definitely a newbie to the world of bath and beauty, so I'm not sure if this is in the right place.  If it is, awesome.  If not, please let me know and I'll take it down/move it to wherever it should go.

No pictures because the mask I made turns out looking pretty gross, but it's great for your skin.  I used it last night on my sunburnt face and it worked wonders to soothe and reduce the redness.

All you have to do is put 1/2 an avocado, a few tablespoons of honey, and 1/8 cup oatmeal in the blender and blend until the avocado is smooth.  Bonus points if the avocado was refrigerated before you blend it...the cooler it is, the more soothing it will feel.  Put it on your face for ten minutes, then gently wipe off with a towel soaked in cool water.  You might have enough left over for another mask.  If that's the case, you can keep it in the fridge for a couple days.  Just put the avocado pit in with the remaining mask so it doesn't turn brown.

The avocado and honey are great moisturizers and the oatmeal soothes irritated skin.  It's perfect for sunburn, but would also be great in the winter if your skin is dried out from heated air or harsh weather.

I've made a similar mask out of almond oil and mashed avacado (very dry skin in winter, so bad my face feels like it's cracking off).

It is soo soothing and I can feel it working. Honey helps too.

Ooh, I'll have to try almond oil next time.  I'll bet it smells really good.

I love avocado masks. I had a crazy allergic reaction to gradual tan lotion (didn't wash hands with soap between tanning the body and applying face lotion) and the tiniest amount made my skin peel for a week.

1/4 an avocado
2 Tbs honey
drizzle of glycerin
1 Tbs coconut oil
1 Tbs Rice bran oil
enough ground oatmeal to make a paste like the avo before the oils

Delicious.
