Your Cinco de Mayo guacamole isn’t just there to for a delicious night out of chips, margaritas and revealing your dark secrets.
The ingredients make an effective, cheap beauty mask. Avocado, cilantro, limes and tomatoes are all packing beautifying nutrients to help you look refreshed even after downing six margaritas, so says eHow and science. It’s best to apply your guacamole ingredients at home, but if you insist on rubbing yours on while you’re partying, people should get it. Gotta protect the 8 by 10. Just remember, to call out someone’s guacamole beauty mask is borderline rude.
So save your avocados and tomatoes and give that face and that body of yours a spa treatment.
1. Avocado is in a ton of beauty aisle products, and that’s because it has vitamins A, D and E, which smooth your skin tone and and soften it. Scoop out the meat for your face. If you scare people with a green face, just remember that the skin-moisturizing results make it worth alienating most people you know.
2. Cilantro has antioxidants, which you need all over the damn place, not just your mug. It’s an herbacious remedy that can relieve bloating and swelling in your skin too. Boil up your extra leafy herbs in a pot of water, and then with a towel on your face, stand over the pot and let your pores absorb the cilantro-fied steam.
3. As long as your skin isn’t too sensitive, you can mix limes with mint, sugar and olive oil for an exfoliating scrub. The citric acid in limes will naturally exfoliate and brighten your skin up.
4. Save your tomatoes that didn’t make the cut for that guacamole. Mash them up for a face mask that will eradicate oil. Tomatoes are said to calm acne-prone skin and blackheads.
