Avocado face masks are one of the best DIY homemade masks for your face. With natural ingredients such as biotin, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin K, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12 and folate, you can’t go wrong with using an avocado in your face mask. Before I list the recipe for the avocado face mask I use, let me list why each of the major vitamins that is in the avocado can benefit your skin. I also use an avocado hair mask for my natural hair.
Biotin is great for your hair, skin and nails. It also helps your skin remain healthy.
Vitamin A assists with forming and maintaining healthy skin. It is also considered an ‘age fighter’.
Vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body including your skin. Dr. Oz recently did a study on the importance of increasing your vitamin c intake to maintain elasticity and youthful skin.
Vitamin D is already produced in your skin so having it in your avocado face mask can only bring more benefits.
Vitamin E moisturizes your skin.
Vitamin K can be used to assist with healing acne, bruises, rosacea and other skin conditions.
Thiamine (Vitamin B1)
Thiamine is necessary for healthy skin, teeth, bones and hair.
