Don’t throw out those avocado peels! Because you don’t need a lot of avocado to get the moisturizing benefit, the small amounts left over on the peels are usually enough for your whole face.
The best time to moisturize is when your skin’s already exfoliated, so try this recipe after you’ve scrubbed those dead skin cells off.
Natural Beauty - Strawberry Exfoliant
Ingredients: Only Avocado. Peels should suffice
Why It Works
Loaded with vitamins A, B, C and E, as well as potassium and fat, avocado is the perfect moisturizer. This natural soother is ideal for mature and weather-worn skin, reducing roughness, cracking and irritation. The oil found in the peel of the avocado contains a humectant, a substance that locks in moisture.
How To Make It
Take a spent avocado peel and using gentle upward strokes, lightly massage your face with the inside of the peel. You can either leave on as a nighttime moisturizer or, for daytime, wash your face with it gently, rinsing three or four times with warm water; pat dry.
