Mask For Dry Skin - DIY

You can make your own facial mask to relieve dry skin if you know the right ingredients to use. Here is how to make one of the best facial masks we've ever tried. Packed with Vitamin A, B, and D!

These are the ingredients you'll need for this DIY face mask:

1 ripe avocado halved
1 tablespoon plain Greek yogurt
2 teaspoons calcium bentonite clay (you can find this at natural or whole food stores)

Make sure that your avocado is soft when squeezed lightly. Scoop out the meat from one half of your avocado. (Eat the other half or save it for later) With the back of a mixing spoon, mash the avocado in a medium sized mixing bowl.

Add the yogurt and clay to the avocado and mix well until there are few or no lumps. Apply to your clean, dry face evenly - getting close to the under eye area as possible without getting it in your eyes. Don't apply to eyelids.

Leave the mask on your face for 15 minutes. You might feel some tingling, but that is just the clay drawing impurities from your skin. The mask will become sticky and brown.

Rinse with warm water. Rinse again with cold water. Apply your favorite moisturizer as usual. (If you've never tried Clinique Youth Surge, we highly recommend it.)

Do you have a DIY moisturizing facial treatment? We'd love to hear from you! Be sure to include ingredients and measures, and if your recipe calls for something other than a typical grocery store item, be sure to tell us where to get it.
