A Homemade Mask to Combat Dry Winter Skin

The chill factor just hit sub zero and dashing from overheated interiors to the car and on and on will show up on skin immediately. Dryness comes with the climate, but there are ways to fight it. This DIY mask is ultra simple and super effective with a straightforward ingredient list. Remember to exfoliate first and moisturize after (we go for Eve Lom or Tata Harper).

2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel, ½ a ripe avocado, 1 tablespoon of runny honey (if required, warm it for a few seconds in a microwave), 1 teaspoon of almond or coconut oil and 1 ½ tablespoon of dry oatmeal (the real stuff not the instant one).

Mash up the avocado in a bowl until it turns into fine pulp without lumps. Mix all of the ingredients together to form a uniform paste. Spread the mask onto freshly washed skin and leave for 15 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water and a clean, warm washcloth. Happy New Year xx.
