If there is one skincare ingredient we have seen everywhere on social media, it has to be avocado. This plump, green coloured fruit is a powerhouse of nutrients. Avocados contain vital minerals such as calcium, iron, copper, potassium, magnesium and other vitamins that provide your body with extensive benefits. Its hydrating qualities have earned it a reputation for a great skincare addition.

And, there is nothing quite like selecting your own skin-loving ingredients and making a DIY face mask. While this mask has been an all time-favourite for your celebs, Alaya F is another devotee of it.

The young and vivacious actress always has that ‘right out of the shower’ glow on her face. And recently, she took to her Instagram handle to reveal the secret behind it. One of the things she does for her gorgeous skin and hair game is mash some avocados!

Calling it her favorite DIY hair and face mask, Alaya is seen adding some honey, yogurt and olive oil for an added antibacterial and gently exfoliating kick.

Here’s how she made her own Avocado mask:

  1. Cut and peel the avocado.
  2. Add avocado cubes to a mixing bowl.
  3. Pour a tbsp of honey on it.
  4. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil.
  5. Add a tbsp of yogurt.
  6. Using a spoon, mix and mash the avocado into a creamy mask.

Turning on her front camera, Alaya applied a thin layer of the gooey avocado mix to her face using both her hands.

Before you begin to whip away your own avocado mask, here are a few benefits you can reap out of it:

  1. Treat sensitive, dry and flaky skin
  2. Hydrate your skin’s barrier
  3. Exfoliate dead skin away and unveil a smooth appearance
  4. Enhance skin elasticity
  5. Reverse effects of aging

If you’re looking for variations in this facial mask, you can concoct your own personal recipes. When you’ve applied one half of the avocado on your face, make some guacamole from the other half. Like a ‘serial chiller’, put on your favorite show, pull out some nachos and enjoy some self love!
