This story is from our partner, Tone It Up! We’ll be sharing Tone It Up’s best fitness and healthy living tips. In today’s, Karena and Katrina will be showing you how to add shine to your hair and a glow to your skin with two of their favorite DIY mask recipes:
Hi everyone, it’s Katrina and Karena here from Tone It Up! Today we’re excited to be telling you about two DIY masks you can make for your hair and face. They are both so easy to make and for when you are in the mood for a relaxing evening at home. Plus, they will freshen up your pretty locks and clear your beautiful skin! The key ingredients in both of these masks are avocado and apple cider vinegar, both of which will make your hair shiny and soft and add a glow to your skin.
Here’s how to make them (be sure to pin the image below to remember it for later!)…
To recap, here’s how to make these masks:
Avocado Hair Mask
You will need:
- 1 banana
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 tsp olive oil
- Blend all the ingredients together and massage into your hair from roots to ends, covering thoroughly.
- Let sit for 30 minutes.
- Shampoo well, then rinse with apple cider vinegar.
Avocado Face Mask
You will need:
- ½ ripe avocado
- 1 tbsp of honey
- 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar
- Blend the ingredients together or mash in a bowl.
- Apply to your face and leave on for 15 minutes. Focus on your breathing and relax while letting it set.
- Rinse off with cool water and a damp cloth.
We love the avocado in these masks because it helps to moisturize and rejuvenate your hair and skin. The healthy fats act as an all-natural and super hydrating moisturizer. And let’s not forget about the apple cider vinegar (one of our favorite elixirs). You might remember us talking about the benefits of apple cider vinegar here on LaurenConrad.com last month. Not only is it good for your body, it’s great for your hair. It closes the cuticles, allowing your locks to lay flat for shinier hair that’s easy to style. It also acts as an astringent that clears your skin as well.
Now that you’ve read a bit about two of our favorite masks, we want to know…
