Making your own avocado face mask is easy. All you need is one avocado and you can make the face mask. Peel avocado and remove the pit (the pit can come out easily with a spoon or a knife). Scoop out the avocado flesh that is left in the peel and do not discard the peel. You can then mash the avocado flesh in a small bowl until it reaches the consistency of a fine paste. Take the peels and rub the inside of the avocado peels against the skin for about three minutes to help with exfoliation. Then take the avocado paste and apply it all over your face. You can leave the face mask on for about ten minutes and then rinse the mask off with warm water and pat your skin dry.
