Beauty recipe:an anti-dryness balm with avocado

The ingredients.

1/2 very ripe avocado + 1 tablespoon of fresh cream + 1 tablespoon of liquid honey.

Their (great) virtues.

Avocado and fresh cream are two super champions in terms of skin nutrition. Honey, on the other hand, is healing, which (also) helps to improve the appearance of the skin.

Get to work!

1/ Purée the 1/2 avocado in a bowl with a fork.

2/ Add the cream and honey and mix well to obtain a homogeneous paste.

3/ Apply to feet, hands and all very dry areas (elbows, knees, etc.). Leave on for 10 minutes then rinse with lukewarm water.


Immediate use.
