Homemade face mask
Cut a ripe avocado into cubes and add a small amount of avocado oil. Use a fork or spoon to mash it into an even paste. Apply the paste to your face and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes before washing it off.
Add your preferred amount of avocado oil to your favorite lotion for an extreme moisturizing effect.
Fill 2/3 of a bottle with avocado oil. Pick another nourishing oil like tamanu, emu, or rosehip to suit your skin needs and fill up the last third of the bottle. Ensure to keep the oil in a cool and dark place.
