Relax Already: Homemade Avocado Masque for Dry Skin

I am always looking for spa treatments I can do in my home with ingredients found readily in my fridge. After a day of harsh weather on the mountain skiing or sitting in an over heated office, it is a great idea to treat yourself to a moisturizing masque. Feed your skin and relax your mind at the same time.


Here is a great moisturizing masque made with just avocados and eggs, courtesy of the California Avocado Commission.

  • Beat the yolk of an egg until it is light and frothy.
  • Add the mashed pulp of half an avocado, mix well in a blender.
  • Cleanse your face thoroughly before using this masque (or any masque, for that matter).
  • Spread the avocado mixture over the face and neck evenly, and just lie down and relax about 20 minutes.
  • Remove with clear tepid water and a face cloth, followed by a rinse of cold water or a mild skin lotion.

You should see a marked improvement in skin texture, and might experience a deep craving for some guacamole.
