This is an all-natural, effective and inexpensive DIY face mask for oily/combination, acne-prone skin. It might seem strange that avocado is used for oily skin, for avocado is well-known for being beneficial to dry skin due to its moisturising properties.
However, most oily skin is dehydrated beneath the surface, and delivering some moisture boost will actually help regulate the sebum production. Lemon juice has a mild astringent and antiseptic effect which helps clear troubled skin. Egg white has whitening and pore-tightening properties; at the same time, it also helps to set the mask.

* To cut a ripe avocado, use a knife to halve the avocado lengthwise around the seed. Use one hand to grab the top half of the avocado and your other hand to grab the lower part, then twist the avocado to separate. Stab the seed with tip of the knife to remove. Place avocado flesh on a chopping board and use the flat edge of your knife or back of a spoon to mash the avocado.
