  • 1 tablespoon honey
Instructions:
  1. Prepare the Avocado: Choose a ripe avocado. Take it apart in half, take out the pit, and scoop out the meat into a bowl.

  2. Mash the Avocado: Use a fork or a spoon to mash the avocado until it becomes a smooth, lump-free paste. You can also use a blender or food processor for a smoother consistency.

  3. Add Honey: Measure 1 tablespoon of honey and add it to the mashed avocado. Make sure to use pure, raw honey for its natural benefits.

  4. Mix Thoroughly: Mix the mashed avocado and honey thoroughly to create a well-blended, uniform mixture. The honey will add a natural sweetness and enhance the mask’s moisturizing properties.
