Happy Cinco de Mayo Friends!
Are you one of those who are still practicing social distancing, like many of us? On any other year, my husband and I would join 5 other couples and head out to our favorite Mexican restaurant for drinks, chips and guacamole, and good conversation. However, this year will look much different. Tonight, I plan to create my own little spa at home with a simple and fun avocado DIY facial mask, using the extra avocados from our favorite homemade guacamole recipe. I’ve applied this mask before and it leaves your skin feeling refreshed and hydrated. The best part? It only requires 5 ingredients that are most likely already in your refrigerator.
Avocado and Cucumber Face Mask
English cucumber, peeled
Avocado, pitted and chopped
Fresh mint leaves ( I use fresh mint from my garden)
Directions: Blend the ingredients together in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. That’s it! I told you it was simple! Apply to clean skin and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water and moisturize if necessary.
Mix up a margarita, grab some chips and salsa and enjoy a little self-care tonight!
