They also help to slow down the aging process making them highly versatile and desirable. Here are some avocado face mask recipes that are effective, inexpensive and so easy to make that you’re sure to love them.” – Spontaneouschick.com

1) Avocado Oatmeal Face Mask

This is one of the best Avocado face masks for people with dry skin it’s super moisturizing and help to restore damaged skin.

  • ½ Ripe avocado
  • ½ Cup of oatmeal

Cook the oatmeal as instructed on the package and mash up the avocado meat with a fork. Mix the two ingredients together and apply the paste to your skin. After 10 – 15 minutes wash it off with lukewarm water and pat your skin dry.

2) Avocado Honey Face Mask

It really works to give your skin a beautiful glow.

Mash up the avocado with a fork and stir in the honey until it turns into a paste. Once done apply it to your skin and leave it on for 15- 20 minutes. When you’re done, wash off the mixture with lukewarm water and pat your face dry with a soft towel.

3) Avocado Yogurt Face Mask

This avocado face mask is also a great one for people who need to pump up the moisture in their skin and is one of my favorites for the cold winter months.

  • ¼ Ripe avocado
  • 1 Teaspoon of plain organic yogurt
  • ½ Teaspoon of honey

Using a fork mash the avocado until it’s soft and then mix in the honey and yogurt to make a paste. Apply it to your skin for 10 – 15 minutes and remove it by washing your skin with lukewarm water.

4) Avocado Egg Face Mask

A recipe that makes for a great avocado face mask for acne because it reduces the oil found on the face.

Mash up the avocado with a fork and fold in the egg white and lemon juice. Apply it to your face for 10 to 15 minutes being careful to not get it into your eyes. When finished wash your skin with lukewarm water and pat it dry.

Unwanted facial hair BE GONE – No waxing needed!

rb-facial-mask-2-0809-de

Isn’t that great news? A completely unwanted-hairless face through no pain! I’m gonna try it out soon 😛

Facial Hair Scrub:

  • 1 tsp ground coffee
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • And a little bit of water to make this into a paste

Very gently exfoliate your skin with it and keep it on for 5-10 mins and then rinse off. Do this once a week

Facial Hair Mask

After exfoliating, use this mask, you’ll need:

  • Gram flour (Besan)
  • Curd
  • Pinch of Turmeric

Use enough Gram flour and Curd to make it a paste, ok? But keep the turmeric to a pinch only, or else your face might turn orange (or so I’ve heard xD)

Now keep this paste on for 20 mins and then rinse it off with cold water. Not only does this get rid of unwanted hair but also lightens up your face.

Why…Why….Why??

common-sense3

Common sense… Why are you such a rare thing??

Is it becoming extinct??

Man, I forgot what it’s like talking or listening to someone and not think “Omg, where’s your common sense?!”

You know what’s frustrating? People who make things way more complicated/frustrating/annoying when it really isn’t.. Geez.

Instead of taking out my entire list of how people don’t have common sense or apparently can’t solve any issues with simplicity, I’ll just mention one such incident today by my professor.

Sigh.

So we have to come in on a Saturday for exams.

That’s fine, really it is.

I take 2 different classes with this teacher, and I have to come at 8am for the 1st exam.

But the 2nd….. The second one will be at 12:30, and there’s no exams, nothing to hand in (all the work is due ‘no later than thursday’, we just come to glance at our classmates portfolios that we already know! And it’ll take “only 30 minutes”

 

Well that’s great IF i didn’t have at 8am class! And since it’ll take only like max. an hour to complete the exam, I’d then have to wait till 12:30.

Maybe it’s just me, but what the fuck is the point? None of us care about looking at each other’s portfolios, we just want to pass! And instead of wasting my time waiting in uni for hours for a useless “final class” that’ll take only 30 mins, how about just no -.- I have so many projects to work on and geez I can’t seem to comprehend the point of going to that 1 class! If we had our presentations on Saturday (instead of today – we finished with our final proj/presentation) then I’d understand why we would have to come! If we had had any projects due on Saturday then I’d UNDERSTAND why we would have to come!!

But this? Seriously?

Common. Sense.

We are already overloaded with useless things that could have been done with if there was any thought in organization, but alas, no.

Why, whyyy, whyyyyyy >.<

This Time Period + Arranged Marriage = Forever Alone (or Forever Depressed)

wpid-arranged-marriage

Ok, so I have to say I’m fuckin’ tired of hearing my friend wanting to get married, yet she says that it’s a taboo to talk to guys on a personal level.

Are you fucking kidding me??

Ok, let me dissect her narrow views in social relationships. I understand she’s an extremely religious person and would die before having a boyfriend/girlfriend type of relationship, however, she NEEDS to be able to talk to guys and deciding for herself whether they’d be husband material or not, and the first damn step to that is actually becoming friends with guys, since that’s the best way to get to know someone.

She keeps having old men or creepy unstable guys asking for her hand in marriage, and then she complains.

Ummm… duh. Arranged marriage these days are a sign of desperation and being unable to find someone, it’s kind of like going on a dating website – except in dating websites you are able to get to know the person way more before deciding to freakin’ marry them.

Also, what sane young guy would want to do arranged marriages???

1.Most of them already have girlfriends they plan on being with and don’t need mommy to hook them up with a bride who sits at home waiting to be called by the ‘perfect’ guy.

2. They end up falling for their friend who goes to university with them, or works at their job place, and then the guy ends up calling her family to ask to marry her

Notice that both include communication and friendship between both guy and girl???

If you don’t notice, good luck staying unmarried at your family’s house for the rest of your life, maybe start up a knitting business or something.

If you plan on sitting around to have someone amazing call and ask for your hand in marriage, while you don’t even talk to guys, or befriend them or even show what an awesome person you are – who the fuck are you expecting to call?? Your imaginary friend from kindergarten or something???

Seriously, grow up and open your brain (if you are close-minded) the world didn’t end 50 years ago, you know.
