Avocado contains a good amount of essential fatty acids, and it’s good for dry skin. To make a facial mask use the meat from one half of a ripe avocado and mash it up into a smooth paste.

    Wow I don’t know about putting the avocado mixture on my face, it sounds good enough to eat. I guess that is the benefit of making it out of this stuff right? Thank you for posting this, you would never think that foods like these could make such great skin care products as well. I am looking forward to giving the tomato one a try though, does it work with any tomato?

    I love the tomato paste for smaller pores that is something I have noticed is becoming worse the older I get, why is that? I will have to try this paste to see how it works, you mentioned at least twice a week is it better to do it more often or does it really make a difference if you do it more than that? The avocado mask I will try as well, thank you.

    Dry skin is one of the most common conditions I see with people I know. In fact, most of us at one time or another have dry skin somewhere on our bodies, in the form of flaky patches, cracked skin, and, in more severe cases, itchy red patches. Luckily, many causes of dry skin are within our control, and with some extra effort we can alleviate the symptoms, prevent it from coming back, and help our skin look and feel softer, smoother, and more beautiful.

    I recently had some chafing to my skin on my face that I think happened because of dehydration after a long night bender. It seems to happen when I consume too much alcohol. So the next day I am usually looking to hydrate and to moisturize my face. I hope these natural solutions help ease this symptom I have been experiencing. Thanks so much for this information.

    These solutions are great for damage due to unprofessional color treatments, lighteners or perms: Such treatments always interfere with the fine chemical structure of the hair. If, for example, an incorrect strength of perm lotion (too strong) is applied in relation to the hair structure or the development time is too long at too high a temperature, the hair swells too much and can be damaged irreversibly.

    I understand this is good for the face but I am needing something for my feet, is there anything you can make a paste out of to put on your feet at night with some socks to revive them by morning? This will be a most interesting post if you can answer that question, I am sure more than myself would like to know this answer.

    This was interesting I had no idea that foods could help with dry skin, I knew that drinking lots of water could help with that problem but I didn’t know about the food. Of course I guess here you aren’t ingesting them you are making masks and things with them to put on your skin right? Well that is very interesting to say the least and I just might have to try it.

    Parts of my facial skin has been chafing (around the nose and chin) after I binge all night or for two days straight on alcohol. I suspect this is due to dehydration and my body trying to excrete the toxins. Yea, I know, I should stop binge drinking and that would solve the problem, but when I do, I am looking for a natural moisturizing fruit or vegetable, not just for after binges. Thanks for the tips.
