I wrote last weekend about how I have completely failed at finding a natural face moisturizer, but in my quest I did find one natural skincare recipe that worked wonders.  This hydrating face mask has just 2 ingredients, and it will leave your skin feeling cool, calm, and fresh.  Just try not to eat it before you get it on your face.  


  • Half a ripe avocado
  • 1 tablespoon of raw honey

Cut your avocado in half and remove the seed, and scoop out one half into a bowl.  Add the honey, and mash everything together into a creamy, uniform paste.  Spread the mixture on your face, avoiding your eyes, and leave it for 20 minutes.  Rinse with lukewarm water and pat your face dry with a towel.  Follow with your favorite moisturizer. 

Pro tip: have the other half of the avocado as a snack while you're waiting for the mask to do its thing.
