How to Create an Avocado Facial Cleanser

Save

Avocado has the ability to nourish your body and it can also help your skin as a natural moisturizer. Avocado oil contains vitamins A, C, E and K, which help improve overall skin health and give a supple glow. Avocado has been known to be a multi-purpose beauty essential that nurtures skin without the chemical additives that can be found in conventional over-the-counter beauty products.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 avocado
  • Bowl
  • Blender or fork
  • Water
  • Carefully choose your ingredients. The higher quality your ingredients, the more benefits your skin will receive. To ensure high quality, seek terms on the label such as "organic" and "raw."

  • Remove the flesh from the avocado and put it in a bowl. The flesh is the smooth, creamy green-yellow to golden-yellow portion inside the skin. Dispose of the skin and the pit.

  • Crack a raw egg and place the entire egg white and yolk into the bowl with the avocado flesh.

  • Add the milk to the bowl. Use a fork or a blender to mix all the ingredients until the mixture is smooth and homogeneous.

  • Apply the mixture all over your face and rub it in for two to three minutes.

  • Use warm water to rinse off the mixture. Pat your face dry with a towel and then apply a daily moisturizer to skin.

Tips & Warnings

  • Store the remainder of your mixture in your refrigerator. The cleanser can be stored for up to two days.
  • The sooner you use your cleanser, the better. Avocados oxidize like any other fruit or vegetable.
  • If you have skin allergies, consult your doctor before applying any product onto your face.
  • If your skin becomes irritated, discontinue use.
