This easy all-natural, moisture-boosting, multi-tasking face mask will nourish and replenish your winter skin.

While sheet masks may be the hottest things on Instagram right now, you don’t have to leave your kitchen to whip up an Insta-worthy beauty treatment. A simple homemade mask will feed skin with natural ingredients like honey and avocado for a much-needed moisture boost.

Avocado is loaded with healthy fats and protein, plus skin-brightening vitamin C, hydrating vitamin E and antioxidants. It can also help to strengthen the outer layer of the skin and help it to absorb and retain moisture.

Honey not only helps to lock in moisture, but is loaded with antioxidants and has antibacterial properties. Combine avocado and honey to create a potent glow-worthy mask.
