Avocado Moisture Mask

I don't know if you've been watching the news lately, but yesterday the Northeast had a random blizzard. Like, out of nowhere. I ended up having to walk around outside yesterday at the tail end of it. It was less than pleasant. And today my skin is rough and dry.


I needed moisture so I came up with this little beauty:

An Avocado Moisture Mask !! It only has two ingredients:

* Half an avocado
* Half a tablespoon of Aura Cacia Grapeseed Skin Care Oil

Mash it together with a fork and it's ready to go.

After smoothing it on and leaving it for about ten minutes, my skin felt moisturized, smoother, and suppler. I decided to go all the way and follow up my mask with some Avène Cold Cream, a super thick ointment for very dry skin. It's extremely intense, but 100% gentle on sensitive skin. I would never use it as a day lotion because it leaves a thick protective barrier, but it's great to use as an overnight treatment.

Much loved this winter.

I expect to wake up to pretty fabulous skin.

You can buy Aura Cacia skin care oils at Whole Foods and Avène products right over at
