Ah, avocado. This fruit is not only delicious and healthy for our insides, but can help us to energize and beautify our outsides, as well! What do I mean by that? Let me tell you!


The Benefits of Avocado

Avocados are known for their health and natural beauty benefits. This green machine is packed with essential nutrients and vitamins (A, B, C, E, K) that can contribute to our skin’s health. Here are just a few benefits to be aware of…

  • Glutamine amino acid cleanses skin and can offer protection against environmental factors.
  • Avocados are packed with antioxidants that detox. These can remove harmful toxins that lead your skin to age prematurely (wrinkles, dull skin, etc.)
  • Vitamins A & E can aid in the relief of dry skin. Avocado seed oil can be used on the skin to achieve healthier, smoother skin and can help lessen the triglycerides in skin. It makes for a great moisturizer!
  • Vitamin A is also known to help purge off dead skin cells
  • Avocado oil easily absorbs, making sure that its benefits run deep! This can also move along new cell generation.

Doesn’t this make you want to start your own at-home spa day? You can! Take a look at these recipes to get started…
