DIY Avocado Lemon Oatmeal MaskInstead of mashing avocado for your guacamole recipes, try mixing them with lemon juice and oatmeal for a moisture boost. Avocados add back oils to our skin through their fatty acids and vitamin E, D and E oils. Not only will you find this mask soothing from the oatmeal, but the lemon juice will also polish off the dead skin on your face.

Recipe:

-1 small ripe avocado

-1 tsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice

-1/3 cooked oatmeal

Step 1

Mash a ripe avocado in a small bowl with a fork.

Step 2

Mix in the freshly squeezed lemon juice

Step 3

Stir the oatmeal into the mixture until you form a paste.

Step 4

Take an old foundation brush and smear the mask onto freshly cleansed skin. Let it sit for 10-20 minutes.

Step 5

Take a hot washcloth and wipe off the mask to reveal moisturized and smooth skin.

Step 6

Apply your favorite moisturizer.
