DIY Avocado Face Mask For Dry Skin

Avocado is not only good for your health, but it also soothes dry skin. Honey contained in the masks is good for your dry skin, as is the yogurt or milk. Try your own homemade avocado facial masks to nourish, soften, cleanse and moisturize your dry skin

1. Avocado Honey Face Mask: This easy to make face mask for dry skin uses only 2 natural ingredients, namely, avocado and honey, both of which act as natural moisturizers. This mask works wonders for mature, wrinkled and dry skin. Take 1 fully ripe fresh avocado, remove the skin as well as the seed, and mash it up into creamy pulp in a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of honey and stir the mixture until it turns into a uniform paste. Apply to skin and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse off the mixture with lukewarm water and pat dry your face with a soft towel.

This avocado mask recipe works to impart a beautiful glow to your face. This face mask is not too sticky, but it is delicious!

2. Oatmeal Avocado Face Mask: This acts as a great moisturizing mask and helps in restoring damaged skin. Take 1/2 ripe avocado and 1/2 cup of oatmeal. Cook the oatmeal as per instructions in the label on the oatmeal packet and mixed it well with the mashed avocado (without its skin and seed) until it turns into a pulp-free paste of uniform consistency. Apply it on your skin and leave it on for 10-15 minutes or until it dries up. Once it’s done, rinse it off with lukewarm water and pat dry your skin with a soft towel.

3. Avocado Yogurt Face Mask: If you want to pump in moisture into your skin then this mask will do the trick.  Yogurt also works well for acne prone skin because it has lactic acid that kills bacteria. As the plain yogurt is a little acidic, it works to restore your skin’s pH balance as well.

This work great in winter months. Take 1/4 ripe avocado and mash it up in a bowl until it turns lump free. Mix into the pulp 1 teaspoon of plain organic yogurt and 1/2 teaspoon of honey. Stir them well until you get a paste of uniform consistency. Apply the mask onto your skin for 10-15 minutes or until it dries out. Rinse it off with lukewarm water and pat your skin dry with a soft towel.

Natural Beauty Tip – In case your skin is oily, go for a lower fat content.

4. Avocado, Banana and Egg Face Mask: Take 1/2 ripe / soft avocado, 1/2 ripe banana and 1 egg yolk. Mash and mix all the ingredients together to form a paste of uniform consistency. Apply on your skin and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Once done, wash it off with lukewarm water and then pat dry your skin with a soft towel.

Now you must have observed how easy it is to make and use these DIY Avocado Face Masks. They are inexpensive and chemicals free. You can apply any one of them once a week and watch your skin getting young and beautiful.

        Just combine mashed fully ripe avocado and olive oil together to make a spreadable paste. Apply to your face. Keep the mask on until it dries a bit, approx 10 minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water.

  1. Can’t wait to try one of these!
    If I don’t use all of the mask in one application, can I refrigerate or freeze what’s leftover without the mask losing its effectiveness?

    • @ Deb:

      Yes, you can keep the left-over mask in a refrgerator for a couple of days. But better would be to prepare lesser amount and if some portion is remaining then use it over your neck, chest or other body parts…

  2. Thank you for your post. How many times a week do you recommend I should apply the mask? Or should it be daily? Thank you!

  3. I’ve noticed you suggesting application a couple/few times per week. Couldn’t the avocado/honey mask be used nightly?

  4. Avocado and olive oil mask is awesome. Skin feels very smooth to touch. This mask also works like magic even for dry hair. I have tried it on face and hair and loved the effect. Thanks

  5. hi. i just did the avocado, honey mask and noticed i started breaking out in small pimples around my chin, my nose and side of jawline. Not sure if it was the honey or avocado that was sensitive to my skin. I thought s mask would be good for smoothing out, but did the opposite and i still have crows feet undermy eyes, and more of these weird age bumps near my eyes too.

    im not as beautiful as years ago. Im in my 30s.

    • @ Peggy:

      Duck egg yolk has higher concentration of nutrients and more protein than the standard hen’s egg. So, you can use duck yolk if you want. Preferably, you keep an avocado mixed with an egg mask in refrigerator and use it within a day. Otherwise, it can start giving a foul smell.

  6. I have always applied an avacado and evoo face mask nightly as it doubles as my night moisturiser…l have a form of severe irratant allergy who ha and not able to use store bought products..My skin is flawless and wrinkle free and l am 55…l only put on my skin what l can eat…cleanse with water only and exfoliate gently with organic ground coffee beans…Mornings l apply a little evoo…trust me your skin will thank you as will your wallet.

  7. for those that are complaining of d left over,my simple advice is 2 mix half of a whole avocado,den use d part DAT av nt bn mix 2 eat bread,it taste nice,trust me jst give it a try,u will love it

    • Avocado contains high oleic acid content, Omega-9 fat. This skin friendly element works to regenerate damaged skin cells and reduce facial redness and irritation.

  8. Thank you for the great advice, his may I add is also good with raw coconut oil when mixed together with the avocado. Skin feels beautiful.
