Avocados are known for their high vitamin E content and therefore are an incredibly effective natural moisturizer for the skin. Bananas, as with avocados, are high in potassium and antioxidants both of which promote the regeneration and repair of muscle fiber and tissues. This mask is a wonderful option when you are looking to both hydrate your skin and fight the signs of aging as the moisturizing benefits from the avocado in conjunction with the high potassium levels of both ingredients will work as one to help plump up the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles that are caused by skin dehydration.
