Add an Avocado to Your Beauty Diet

Do you know what skin benefits Avocado's have ?

Avocado oil is best known for its uses in cooking but it can also contribute to skin care. The oil is an ingredient in many types of creams, moisturizers and sunscreens.

The nutrient dense and creamy fruit – affectionately referred to as ‘nature’s butter’ – is an excellent source of over twenty vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B, C, E and K, riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, potassium, lutein, beta-carotene, omega-3 fatty acids and anti-ageing antioxidants.

Eating them regularly will undoubtedly help to improve your skin and hair from within but when applied directly, the power of the avocado goes even further and can work wonders.

4 Ways Avocados Benefit Your Body

1. Moisturizes and nourishes

The natural oils in avocados can deeply penetrate the skin to nourish, soften and hydrate. The hydrating properties may reduce fine lines and wrinkles helping to keep skin smooth and boost skin’s immunity against stress and other environmental factors.

2.Relieves inflammation from psoriasis and eczema

The antioxidants and vitamins in avocado oil may help to heal the dry, irritated, and flaky skin associated with eczema and psoriasis.

3. Treats sunburned skin

The antioxidants in avocado oil may help to ease the symptoms of a sunburn. According to a 2011 review, the vitamin E, beta carotene, vitamin D, protein, lecithin, and essential fatty acids in the oil can support healing and soothe the skin. Other small studies have shown that consuming avocados may help to protect the skin from harmful UV radiation.

4. Reduces Bad Breathe

Avocado juice cleanses your mouth and helps remove the bacteria in your intestine and gut that often create bad breath.”
