Carrot, avocado, honey and egg face mask for dry ageing skin
This natural face mask is packed with antioxidants and moisturising agents that work to hydrate your skin, while also acting to neutralise the free radicals that otherwise cause ageing.
Carrots are rich source of potassium that prevents skin dryness and also contain anti-inflammatory properties to help revitalise and tone up your skin. The other three ingredients, namely, avocado, honey and egg yolk are all moisturising agents.
Take 1 carrot, peeled and de-stemmed, 1/2 avocado, 1 tablespoon honey, 1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive or coconut oil and 1 egg yolk.
Steam or boil the carrot till it turns so tender that a fork can pierce it easily. Blend it along with 1/2 fully ripe avocado in a blender until it forms a uniform consistency pulp. Stir in 1 tablespoon honey, 1 egg yolk and mix well all the ingredients together. Smear it evenly onto your freshly washed face, leaving it there for about 15 minutes. Rinse of the mask with a warm washcloth, followed by applying moisturiser on the still wet skin.
