Chop avocado fruit and scoop out the pulp. Crush the pulp until it is creamy. Add yogurt and honey to the pulp and stir/whisk well. Cut 2 slices of cucumber. Apply the paste evenly over clean neck and face. Massage it well into the skin. Keep cucumber slices on the eyes and relax for 10–15 minutes until the mask sets. Wash your face using lukewarm water and pat dry.
