Avocado, milk and honey

Take a ripe avocado fruit and scoop its flesh out. Mash it in a way that it becomes a paste. To it, add two tablespoons of milk, and one tablespoon of honey. Mix them all properly and when you think it has become a consistent paste, apply on the face and the neck region, and wash after 30 minutes. Pat your face dry and repeat the next day.

Avocado, lemon and honey

Once again, scoop out the flesh of avocado and add one tablespoon of honey, and half a squeeze of lemon. Mix them well until it becomes a paste. Then apply the pack on the face and the neck, and massage well for 20 minutes. Wash it off after that and pat dry.
