Moisturizing Mask for Your Skin
Avocados make an amazing skin mask that will leave you with soft, supple skin. For a simple recipe mix ½ ripe avocado, 1 egg, 1 Tbsp Greek yogurt and 1 tsp of baking soda together in a blender until well mixed. Then apply to your skin and leave on for about 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Awesome.
Deep Conditioner for Your Hair
In addition to keeping your skin conditioned, use the same approach on your hair. It will soothe a dry scalp and help with damaged hair. This works even best with overripe avocados which have extra oils that are so healthy for your hair. For your hair just blend together one avocado and one egg yolk in a blender. Work it through wet hair from your scalp to your tips. Leave on for about 5 minutes, rinse well and wash as normal.
