As a licensed esthetician I love doing cheap effective DIY skin care routines at home. This egg white avocado smoothie face mask is so good for your skin. Additionally all you need is 3 simple ingredients to make it. It’s great for men and women of all ages. Furthermore this homemade avocado face mask is nontoxic with all natural ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
All you need for this healthy DIY skin care face mask is 2 tbsp avocado, 1 egg white, 2 tbsp almond flour, and a blender. The almond flour can be replaced with coconut flour or oat flour if you prefer or are allergic to almonds. The egg whites can be replaced with 2 tbsp coconut oil if you are allergic to eggs.
I love using avocados on my skin. Avocados are packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that brighten your skin. This superfood is rich in natural oils that can moisturize dry skin. In addition to protein and fiber, avocados contain vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin B-6.
They also contain iron and magnesium. All of these nutrients can penetrate the skin for moisturizing and anti-aging benefits. These are just a few reasons I love this egg white avocado smoothie face mask.
Egg whites have been used as a beauty treatment ingredient for years. It has been said that egg whites can tighten the skin and absorb excess oil. Egg whites are about 90% water and 10% protein. This combination of protein and water acts as a humectant.
Humectants are substances that hold in moisture at a molecular level. Furthermore humectants attract and hold moisture in nearby by absorbing it in. It draws the water vapor into or under the surface of the host. Humectants are essential for skin care routines and face masks.
Almond flour is one of my favorite DIY skin care ingredients for this exfoliating homemade avocado face mask. Exfoliation means to come apart or be shed from a surface in scales or layers. Also to wash or rub (a part of the body) with a granular substance to remove dead cells from the surface of the skin.
Exfoliating the skin is beneficial for a variety of reasons. For example exfoliating your face can unclog pores and reduce breakouts. It also reduces and prevents fine lines and wrinkles. Skin cells are constantly replenishing themselves.
In fact your skin completely replenishes itself every 27 days. Exfoliatingskin care routines like this blender homemade avocado face mask helps to remove unwanted dead skin cells. This process has many benefits. Benefits of exfoliating your skin includes unclogging pores and preventing acne.
When dead skin cells build up in the skin they can clog your pores. Especially around the oily regions of the face such as the nose and chin. Clogged pores often result in breakouts of blackheads and pimples.
That’s why this exfoliating egg white avocado smoothie face mask with almond flour is great for acne prone skin. Another reason exfoliating benefits the skin is due to the fact it allowed the skin to absorb nutrients more easily. DIY skin care can easily remedy these skin problems.
Almond flour is made of finely ground blanched almonds. First the almond are boiled in water to remove the skins before being ground and sifted into a very soft fine flour. This is slightly different than almond meal which is ground into powder with the skin intact.
Almond meal is less soft and therefore too “scratchy” for an exfoliating facial like this egg white avocado smoothie face mask. Additionally almond flour is beneficial to the skin because it’s rich in vitamins and minerals.
It also contains vitamin E, manganese, and magnesium. Almond flour also contains magnesium, copper, and phosphorus. All of which are beneficial nutrients for healthy skin in this homemade avocado face mask.
