Pump some fun into your routine with these DIY avocado beauty recipes. Packed with beautifying biotin, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids, avocados revive your parched winter skin and hair.

After trying these beauty recipes, you’ll look so radiant your friends will demand to know your secret.

So, why wait? Grab that avocado, and let’s get to work.

Beauty Recipe #1: Avocado, Yogurt and Honey Face Mask

First, whip up this refreshing avocado face mask to pump life back into your skin. All you need is one ripe avocado, a half cup of Greek yogurt, a tablespoon of honey (optional), and two drops of vitamin C serum.

Mash the avocado with a fork. Then, add the yogurt, honey, and vitamin C serum. Apply evenly to skin, and rinse after 30 minutes.

Avocados nourish skin, yogurt exfoliates, and honey fights bacteria to keep blemishes at bay. Vitamin C prevents the avocado from darkening and fades age spots to improve your skin tone.
