Milk Mask with Avocado For Dry Skin

This formula is from my mother. I got this mask recipe from her. I think it is really effective for her because her face is fair and smooth although she is near 60s. A lot of people has been saying that she look like in her Late 40s or Early 50s.

Those with Dry skin, you may want to try her formula. Cheap and Good too!


1 ripe Avocado (Mashed)

2 tablespoon of Honey

2 tablespoon of Milk


Mix all the things together and leave it on your face for 20 minutes. Wash it off with warm water followed by toner and your moisturiser.
