Today I’m sharing something a little different than usual. Instead of eating your food ~ let’s play with our food! Who says avocados are only for eating? Not I….Did you know they are as wonderful for your skin as they are on your plate? Avocados From Peru sent me a package & this is one of the many ways I enjoyed it.


This homemade Avocado, Lemon & Honey Face Mask is an inexpensive indulgence, a great way to moisturize & clean out those pores & keep your pretty face glowing!

    If I could part with any of my avocados and not eat them all first, I could definitely make this 🙂 Sounds perfect & Pinned!

      Thanks Averie! I agree it is very hard to part with such a delicious avocado, but at least you can eat the other hat!

    I’m not sure if I can wait for 20 minutes without licking some. Being beautiful is not easy at all! Thanks for the idea Marla!

    Will give it a go. Anything made out of advacados sounds good to me.
