Reverse The Effects Of Aging With This Simple 4 Ingredient Avocado Face Mask

The avocado has long been known for its positive effects on the human body, and the healthy properties of this fruit have made avocado face masks more popular than ever. Using an avocado mask has a number of benefits when it comes to fighting aging, dry & dull skin, and a number of other skin issues.

When it comes to skin care, the benefits of avocado face mask treatments are believed to come from its antioxidant and moisturizing properties.

Gives The Skin a Deep-Down Clean

A huge benefit of an avocado face mask is that it can give skin a deep-down cleansing without the use of harsh chemicals. While common chemical peels can get the skin clean and lift away dirt and excess oil that is trapped deep down in the pores, an avocado face mask will penetrate deep into the skin, and remove dead skin cells with the power of vitamin A or retinol, amino acids, and glutamine. This leaves the skin feeling clean and healthy, and can help get rid of acne or skin blemishes. Avocado face mask treatments are usually gentle on the skin, and are far less likely to cause problems associated with harsh chemical applications like redness, moderate irritation, and peeling.

Moisturizes & Nourishes Skin

An avocado face mask battles dry skin and add moisture to the skin due to its vitamins A and E content, both of which have antioxidant properties that also help repair damaged skin. An avocado mask can help heal skin in two ways, one by adding moisture and then by locking it into the skin to keep skin moisturized longer. Many lotions that claim to treat dry skin only soften the surface, and many applications are usually necessary to keep the skin from drying out again. With an avocado face mask, it can penetrate the deeper layers of the skin and create longer-lasting moisturizing effects.

Anti Aging Benefits

An avocado face mask fights the natural effects of aging in two ways. First, it contains vitamin A, which is a form of retinol, because it can help boost new cell growth and collagen production. The more collagen the skin produces, the less visible wrinkles and fine lines become. Collagen is one of the substances in our body responsible for keeping skin tight.

Second, avocado face masks also help the skin fight free radicals that can attack healthy skin cells and eventually lead to dark spots on face and skin discoloration. The naturally occurring antioxidants in avocados help fight free radicals when absorbed directly into the skin. The nutrients in avocados can also act as a natural sunscreen, which can help boost the effectiveness of any sun block you’re using. Research studies have also demonstrated that vitamin E can reduce the effects of UVA and UVB radiation from sun exposure on skin. Vitamin E is also much better for you and your skin when it’s obtained from natural sources like avocados.


This homemade avocado mask is very hydrating and helps restore a youthful glow to your skin. It also kills acne-causing bacteria while providing essential nutrients.
