4. Avocado

All the nutrients and good fats present in avocados can also be utilized by the skin. Making an avocado face mask is super easy, and nutritious for your face, just try not to eat it!

Directions: Cut one avocado in half and scoop out half of the avocado into a bowl. Mash with a fork, and add a teaspoon of almond oil if desired. Apply to face, and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes. Remove all avocado and oil mixture with a warm, wet cloth, and pat dry skin. Add a half teaspoon of almond oil to the skin if still dry.

 

5. Bentonite Clay

Bentonite clay is a super detox, so if you find yourself with constant blemishes, especially after eating certain foods, a clay mask may be your best bet for clearer skin.

Directions: Mix one teaspoon bentonite clay with two tablespoons of water, or until consistency is like a thin paste. Spread evenly on the face, and let dry completely, about 10-15 minutes. Remove mask with warm, wet cloth, and apply a light oil, such as almond oil, to the face.

 

6. Almond Oil

Almond oil is light, and contains a number of anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. It can be used in everyday face care, as well as in mask recipes or as a moisturizing mask itself.

Directions: Whenever skin feels dry, apply almond oil generously to the face. Allow to completely absorb into the face. To use almond oil as a cleanser, apply to face, then remove with warm, wet cloth. Allow remaining oil to absorb into the skin.
