The avocados 'ave it
I’ll be honest. I only discovered my love affair with this big green super fruit this year. Yep, you heard right – this year.
You see, I’m one of those annoyingly picky eaters, and I’d convinced myself that I just didn’t like avocados, not one bit. That was until it was spread on a sandwich of mine without my knowledge, and it’s been love ever since.
I also came across this recipe for an Avocado Carrot Cream Mask that I simply had to share – I know how you all love a homemade beauty recipe after all!
What’s great about this is that the mask combines avocados (rich in vitamin E) with carrots (chock-full of antioxidants), and cream, (packed with calcium and protein), so it helps to rebuild skin collagen, improve tone and texture and fade age spots.
What you need:
- 1 avocado, mashed
- 1 carrot, cooked and mashed
- ½ cup heavy cream
- 1 egg, beaten
- 3 tablespoons honey
To prepare, simply combine all ingredients in a bowl until smooth. Spread gently over your face and neck, and leave in place for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with cool water and follow with your favourite toner.
