Beauty DIY:
Avocado Mask


   





Hi guys! I am so excited to share with you my first "skin" DIY tutorial on Behind the Seams! When I am not blogging on my personal style, I am a full-time Esthetician and Professional Makeup Artist. I have been in the industry for over 9 years and love making a positive difference in my clients' lives.  I hope these new beauty installments will make you feel good about yourself as well!  Please stay tuned for more skin and beauty tips from me. Enjoy!!



Benefits:
+ Avocados are a great source in vitamins(E,C,K), minerals, and proteins that can help repair damaged skin!
+ This is the perfect hydrating mask for those who want soft and supple skin.
+ Anti-aging benefits! Reduces wrinkles and age spots.
+ Helps get rid of acne and blemishes.
+ Natural and affordable!


Supplies You Will Need: 1 ripe avocado, measuring spoons, a small bowl, a hand towel, a spatula, a whisk, Virgin Coconut Oil, a knife, a cutting board, and a spoon.

 *Before trying this face mask, please make sure you do not have any fruit or vegetable allergens.

Step 1: Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Take your spoon and scrape the pulp into a small bowl.

Step 2: Add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil.

Step 3: Take the spoon and mash the mixture until it is free of lumps.

Step 4: Next, take a metal whisk and whip the concoction until it becomes a creamy consistency.

Step 5: Using the spatula, apply the avocado mask to your entire face and neck!
 
Step 6: Massage in circular motions with your fingertips. Leave the mask on your skin for 8-10 minutes.

Step 7: Soak a small hand towel in warm water and remove the mask. Rinse the remaining residue with warm water.

Finish!! Your skin should feel nice and soft!

Blue Hawaiian

H&M tank / Oscar de la Renta skirt / Kenneth Cole slides / Daniel Wellington watch / PacSun jewelry / Reed Krakoff bag


For this style post, I'm wearing a vintage Oscar de la Renta skirt with Hawaiian print details. I've always been a big fan of midi skirts and love the "ladylike" appeal it exudes! I paired it with my favorite pieces such as this black tank from H&M, Rag and Bone hat, Daniel Wellington watch, Kenneth Cole slides, and Reed Krakoff bag!
