Things You'll Need
- Ground chia seeds
- 4 organic avocados
- Potato peeler
- Whole milk
- Drop of lavender fragrance oil
- Blender (if needed)
- Potato masher
- Jar with lid
Peel the avocado with a potato peeler. Cut it in half and remove the seed from the center using a spoon. Dispose of the peel and the seed.
Mash the avocados with a potato masher. Mix 1/3 cup of whole milk in with the avocados to soften them up. Milk is also great for exfoliating and smoothing skin. Blend well (you may use a blender, if necessary). Add one drop of lavender fragrance oil. The smell of lavender is said to have relaxing effects.
Mix five to six tbsp. of chia seeds in with the whole milk and avocado mixture. Stir until the seeds are evenly distributed through the mixture. Again, you may use a blender, if necessary. Pour the mixture into a jar with a lid.
While in the shower, grab about a quarter-sized amount and rub it into the palms of your hands. Smooth over your body, including rough areas like elbows, knees and feet. Add more quarter-sized amounts as needed. You may also add the mixture to a loofah for extra exfoliation on extremely rough spots.
Allow the mixture to sit on the skin for one minute. Rinse well with cool water. Repeat three times a week for soft, healthy skin.
