What can I do with half an avocado?

I chopped up half of an avocado in a big salad a few days ago and forgot about the other half :( I've heard that avocado is good for some DIY beauty things, but I'm kind of clueless about it lol. Any suggestions?

  • Just rub it on your skin and let it dry. It's a great moisturizer and has lipids and fats. Skin loves it.

  • My opinion? A pre-shave leg mask. Mash it up, add a little (little!) olive oil and smear it on, leave it 15 minutes, rinse off then shave. There are enzymes in the avocado that soften the hair, you'll get a closer shave with less chance of ingrown hairs.
