Avocado contains essential fatty acids, the building blocks of collagen – a structural protein contained in the skin essential for elasticity. It moisturises skin and has anti-ageing benefits.
Olive oil is anti-oxidant rich so helps protect skin cells from environmental aggressors. It also contains squalene, a natural lipid produced by skin cells that diminishes as we age, and is a fantastic hydrator.
Honey contains phytochemicals which have anti-inflammatory and moisturising properties that will speed up healing of any chaffed or damaged skin, and prevent infection. It is also a humectant, so will help your skin retain the goodness of the avocado and hydration of the olive oil.
½ Ripe Avocado, mashed until smooth and creamy
1 tbsp Organic Honey
1 tsp Pure Olive Oil
Combine the ingredients in a bowl, then simply apply to your face, avoiding your eye area. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Wipe away with a damp cloth or splash of warm water.
Add some chilled cucumber slices to your eyes, for their hydrating, brightening and anti-oxidant properties!
If used regularly, your skin will reap the natural rewards of this concoction, for a radiant and softer finish, and a few anti-ageing benefits to boot.
