Make a simple, non-toxic face mask by whipping up this avocado hemp oil face mask. 3 ingredients and super simple to make.

All skin types need to be properly nourished and this face mask will do just that.
Avocado Hemp Oil Face Mask
One of the reasons I love DIY body products is that all of the ingredients are typically found in the kitchen. This means 1) the ingredients are easily accessible since I probably already have them or can find them in any grocery store. And 2) the DIY product is totally non-toxic and SAFE.
Putting food on your face might seem a little weird, but considering how nourishing healthy food is, it’s no surprise that face masks using food work wonderfully!
My most recent favorite face mask is an avocado hemp oil face mask. With just 3 ingredients, it will hydrate your skin by putting healthy oils and fats back into it and it cleanses your skin.
Avocados for Healthy Skin
Avocados are great for your skin because they:
- Are full of antioxidants which protect your skin
- Contain vitamin C which helps create elastin and collagen
- Help repair damaged skin cells and soothe redness/irritation thanks to the presence of omega-9
Benefits of Hemp Oil for Skin
Hemp oil is my daily face moisturizer and has been for a couple of years now. I’ve seen a reduction in redness and acne scarring. This oil is unique because it has a comedogenic rating of 0, meaning it will not clog your pores or leave your face feeling greasy.
Hemp oil has many spectacular benefits for your skin. It reduces inflammation, redness, and even contains anti-bacterial properties. Hemp oil has a proportional balance of omega 3 and omega 6 which help with many skin issues – such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
Lemon Juice for Healthy Skin
While the lemon juice will help keep the avocado fresh until you use it up, it also has some key benefits for your skin.
Firstly, I’d like to note that lemon juice should be applied to your face in small amounts and mixed with other hydrating and nourishing items, like the avocado and hemp oil in this recipe, to prevent drying or irritation. Used properly lemon juice can be very beneficial to your skin!
Lemon has the following benefits:
- Cleanses and exfoliates
- Fades dark patches and scars
- Heals acne
- It may even help heal eczema
In combination, avocado, hemp oil, and lemon juice come together in this Avocado Hemp Oil Face Mask to promote healthy, radiant skin!
Note: The avocados do not have to be perfectly ripe by any means! A little overripe is not a big deal – in fact, it is a great opportunity to use them up (and they’re easier to mash!)
Avocado Hemp Oil Face Mask
- 1/2 avocado mashed
- 1/2 tablespoon hemp oil
- 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
Mash or blend together the avocado, hemp oil, and lemon juice until fairly smooth.
Apply a layer to your face and let sit for 6-8 minutes.
Store the rest of the mask in a container in the fridge and use the rest within 2 days.
