Following a weekend of too much sun recently, my face felt in desperate need of some TLC. Not wanting to spend a fortune on lotions and potions, I opted for my fridge and pantry, and made a great fix for my face that in addition to moisturising my dry skin, also soothed the sunburn that I had remaining. If your skin is calling out for some moisture and if you're in a hurry, here's a great little home made remedy. I only used this on my face, but because it contains yogurt, this could be used as a topical sunburn mask if you've gotten too much sun in other areas.

This mask includes avocado which is full of vitamin E, a well reputed skin moisturiser, in addition to olive oil, a natural skin lubricant, and my favourite face mask base - yogurt. Yogurt is like a super food for your face coming complete with anti-bacterial agents and a plenitude of vitamins and minerals. Your skin will thank you for this one.

Ingredients
1 tablespoon yogurt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 avocado, blended (must be very ripe)

Method
- Combine the mashed avocado with the yogurt and olive oil to make a thick paste. I use a fork to ensure that all components are mashed well together. The paste should be thick but not too lumpy.
- Cover your face with a thick layer of the face mask and leave for 15 minutes.
- As this mask is thick, you will need to rinse off with warm water and a face cloth.

If you're applying this to sunburnt skin, you should notice that the face mask has taken some of the redness away from your skin and will also help to prevent peeling. For the ultimate in sunburn relief, make up the mask and pop into the fridge for 15 minutes before applying, this will cool your skin down for you.
