1.For Dry Skin: Honey-Avocado Mask
2 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of avocado
2 tablespoon of olive oil
1 mashed mango
Mix all the ingredients together. Leave on for 15 minutes and then remove with a warm cloth.
Why It Works: “Honey is great because it is hydrating without risking a breakout,” says Joanna Vargas, celebrity facialist and founder of Joanna Vargas Salon and Skincare Collection. “Avocado is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and B vitamins, which are incredible for your lymphatic system and restoring the skin’s lipid layer.” The mashed mango helps brighten the skin, since it’s packed with vitamin C, while the olive oil softens. Olive oil is also an anti-inflammatory that reverses the signs of sun damage.
