Superfoods are not only amazing for your health but they are also a powerhouse of nutrients for your skin. Of course, nutrition plays a major role in how your skin looks, because more often then not, beautiful skin is a reflection of our overall health. However, you can always give your complexion an extra boost by committing to a skincare routine that suits you best and applying natural face masks every once in a while.
Mother Nature has the best ingredients to answer most of your skin problems and today we are rooting for Turmeric and Avocados.
- Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory ingredient with potent anti-bacterial properties making it perfect for acne-prone skin. Turmeric is also full of antioxidants, one of which is a powerful ingredient called curcumin. Curcumin boosts your complexion, reduce ageing and gives you a natural glow. It has natural skin-lightning properties that can help reduce dark spots, age spots and sun damage and also helps with brightening your dark circles and rejuvenating your undereye skin.
- Avocados are loaded with Omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin A, D and E which are easily absorbed by the skin and are essential for its health and elasticity. Avocado also contains minerals such as potassium that moisturize the skin and gives it a revitalized and fresh look. Research has shown that applying avocado to the skin can help with conditions such as eczema and psoriasis and can also prevent and treat acne. Many of these benefits should make applying avocado topically a must in your skincare routine.
Mixing avocado and turmeric together gives you one of the most powerful nutrient-dense face masks your skin will ever need. Both have anti-aging benefits, moisture and nourish your skin and give it a natural glow.

Cut your avocado in half and remove the seed. Put 1/2 the avocado in a bowl and mash it with a fork. Add the turmeric and mix really well. Once the consistency is nice and smooth apply the mixture to your face and let it sit for 15 to 30 minutes.
Rinse with lukewarm water and dry your face. This mask will leave your skin revitalized and fresh. To try this mask is to adopt it!

If you feel a little EXTRA, give yourself the perfect at home-spa treatment. We recommend you apply your favourite skin oil with a gentle massage right after the turmeric avocado facemask. Our favourite is, of course, Argan oil.
