The formula is half a ripe, soft avocado mixed with a quarter cup of honey.
Aloe Vera And Avocado Facial Mask
Aloe Vera is a super hydrating compound and adding to it avocado and honey gives it very potent moisturising properties.

Apply the mask and let it stay for around fifteen minutes, then rinse it off with lukewarm water and wipe with a warm cloth.
Milk Facial Mask
A homemade milk mask is great for dry skin. Milk is often used to moisten skin all over the body and especially helps to fight against sunburns and redness. This is because milk acts as a great moisturiser and can rehydrate dry and aging skin very well. For this mask you’ll need one tablespoon of powdered milk, one tablespoon of runny honey, one tablespoon of aloe vera gel and two drops of essential oil. Mix the ingredients thoroughly and well and apply it to your face. Let it sit for fifteen minutes and then rinse off with warm water.
Coconut Oil And Cocoa Butter Moisturising Face Mask
Coconut oil is a great choice for hydrating your skin and acts as an ideal foundation for the preparation of a variety of moisturisers. When you add cocoa butter and olive oil into the mix, you end up with an extremely hydrating moisturiser that feels nice and supple on your skin. This formula can be used on any part of your body and is not restricted to just a facial mask. The ingredients you’ll need to make this moisturiser are; quarter cup of extra virgin coconut oil, three fourth cup of cocoa butter, two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and a few drops of essential oil. To prepare the moisturiser you must first place all the ingredients in a small pan and microwave them for a few minutes until all the coconut oil and cocoa butter melt. Pour the ingredients into a container and screw the lid on. Shake vigorously while the mixture cools down. When it comes to room temperature, it will achieve the consistency of the coconut oil before it was melted. Scoop out a dollop and apply to your face and/or your body. You can remove any excess moisturiser that you apply with a washcloth.
