We are big fans of DIYs at Brooklyn Botany. Especially, simple DIYs that can be made with products found in your kitchen. It is also no secret that we are full-fledged members of the avocado club. We did create an Avocado Scrub,
We adore how the rich avocado oil in our body scrub works to nourish the skin on a deeper level. And while avocado smeared over a slice of toast causes our taste buds to explode, the same avocado can also be smoothed over skin for an incredibly hydrating treatment.
The Hydrating Avo Masks consists of three simple ingredients: avocado, plain organic yogurt, and honey. Combining the three together results in a thick, creamy paste that exfoliates and hydrates.
Honey also provides incredibly anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that help to combat any breakouts or skin flare-ups. Meanwhile, avocado not only hydrates but also contains potent levels of Vitamin C and E which both helps maintain their cellular structure.
The next time you have a spare avocado hanging around in your kitchen forget about making avo-toast and instead whip up a quick mask!
