Ingredients:

½ Ripe Avocado

1 Egg Yolk

1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

1 Tablespoon Organic Plain Yogurt

1 Teaspoon Olive Oil

Prep:

Peel and mash the avocado in a bowl with a fork until you have a smooth consistency. Mix in the remaining ingredients until blended well and apply to clean face and neck. Leave on for 20 minutes then rinse off with warm water and a gentle cleanser. Gently pat dry with a soft towel and follow with an oil-free moisturizer for your face and neck or skip the moisturizer and add a drop of extra virgin olive oil to your face and neck. 1 drop will be enough for your face and neck, won’t leave your pores clogged, and will be a beautiful hydrator for your skin.

Benefits:

Avocados are beneficial to your skin in addition to your overall health. Avocados heal dry skin, reduce age spots, minimize fine lines and wrinkles, and can even soothe skin affected by eczema or other skin conditions. A large quantity of the protein, sterolin, is found in avocado and this specific nutrient is what treats so many skin issues just listed. Sterolin is found in mass quantities in the oil of the avocado which is why this oil is added to so many skincare products. An added bonus – Avocados do not clog your pores and will not make you break out further.

Egg yolk is rich in Vitamin A, which is known to fight acne and prevent future break outs from occurring. Vitamin A will heal and repair your skin, aiding with the production of new skin cells to form. The yolk of an egg is extremely effective in fighting acne.

Organic plain yogurt is a moisture drink for the skin in addition to soothing dry, irritated, and inflamed skin.  Lemon juice works to fight oily skin while leaving skin feeling fresher and looking more radiant with a beautiful glow. Olive oil is wonderful to work deep into the skin to add another level of hydration to the skin without clogging your pores.
