Magical Fruit For Youthful Skin
Aside from being overall healthy, avocado is rich in vitamins A, E, D, B1, B2, K, PP, and essential fatty acids, which make it an excellent product for skincare. Avocado oil can be used externally and internally and can give your skin an amazing glow, promoting your health inside and out.
This oil is very effective in fighting the ageing process, it easily absorbs into the skin and can be used for practically all skin types. It hydrates and softens the skin, providing it natural beneficial nutrients and vitamins, stimulating collagen production.
In the summer, avocado oil can be beneficial against the damaging UV rays, while in the winter it protects your skin from the harsh weather outside. Ideal for every season, avocado oil should become an essential part of your beauty routine.
It can also improve your hair quality, owing to the high concentration of monounsaturated fats. It locks the moisture inside the hair follicles, making your hair stronger and shinier. You can also use it to nourish and hydrate the tender skin around your eyes, the area most prone to wrinkles.
How to use it?
Just like any other moisturizer, you can apply avocado oil with a cotton pad on your face, or use your fingers to gently massage your face with it. It can be used for daycare, but since it’s so rich it may be better to apply it before you go to bed and let it all soak in during the night.
Pay attention to the labels and always look for cold-pressed avocado oil, and not the cheaper refined oils, if you’re interested in the potential skin restorative properties, rather than just the moisturizing effects. The process of cold pressing preserves all the important regenerative ingredients like plant sterols, chlorophyll, vitamin E and other antioxidants.
