This face mask is antibacterial and will soothe any inflammation, banish free radicals and acne causing bacteria, and soften your skin. This mask will help painful  pimples come to a head and to heal and soothe the skin when it pops.

Manuka Honey is a natural humectant, antibacterial and antiseptic that kill bad bacteria. The lactic acid in the yogurt will help slough off dead skin cells and tighten pours.

Ingredients:

  • ¼ Avocado
  • ½ T. Manuka Honey
  • ¼ t. Greek Yogurt

 

Directions:

Cut avocado in half, use the side without the seed in it (the seed in the other side will keep that side fresher, longer), scoop out ¼ of total avocado.

Using a blender, cream the avocado meat into a paste.

Drop in the manuka honey and stir by hand until you get a consistency you are happy with. Then add the Greek Yogurt to stiffen the mixture a bit more.

Cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser first, then apply the mask with a flat brush or your fingers. Wait for 15 minutes for the mask to do its work. When time is up splash with lukewarm water then rinse with cool water to keep the anti-inflammatory benefits lasting!
