Gather and prep your ingredients:
  • 1/2 avocado, mashed
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1/8 cup fresh mint, very finely minced
  • 2 Tbs ground almonds
  • 1 clove garlic, run through garlic press (or very finely minced and mashed a bit)
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp honey
Combine all by hand or use a food processor (not necessary, but it does make the mask smoother and more uniform). Apply mask to clean skin, stay clear of eyes, and leave on for 10 - 15 minutes.  Rinse off thoroughly with warm water. 

Caution: Remove immediately if you experience a high degree of irritation or burning!  Garlic, lime and mint have strong astringent properties and the concentrations of active ingredients are unpredictable in natural form.   You may want to try a small test patch first, especially if you have sensitive skin.

Avocado is "Love food" with me.

As awesome as that is. I would much rather have that on a chip and a side of mojito. :D
