Want to improve your skin one avocado at a time? Not only is avocado good for our health, but it also serves as a great ingredient in relation to skincare. You can choose to purchase avocado oil or even butter, but it works just as well if you cut-up a fresh avocado and use the product on your hair, skin and nails.
Below are just a few ways this fruit can revolutionise your skincare regime, and change the condition of damaged hair and skin. As if we needed another reason to love avocado…
If you’re into creating natural skin masks, then you should definitely throw in some avocado slices every once in a whole. Not only does it work well for wrinkles and age spots, but it can help to hydrate even rough skin conditions such as psoriasis.
Okay, now we’ve definitely heard it all! Did you know that you can use avocado in lieu of sunscreen? Replace your regular sunscreen lotion with avocado butter to protect your skin from the suns harmful rays. You can also apply it on skin which has been burnt from the sun!
Add a few pieces of avocado into your daily cleanser for clearer skin. Avocado penetrates the skin to carefully remove any layers of dirt and other impurities, while also increasing the circulation of blood flow in the face and body. Massage the product in circles around your cheeks for a visibly brighter skin tone.
Do you have an incoming pimple which is making it’s way to the surface of your skin? Instead of using a spot treatment, apply a tiny bit of avocado onto the problem area, and leave on for 1-2 hours. It will also significantly diminish the appearance of scarring if used on a regular basis.
The consistency of avocado is creamy and heavy which makes it perfect to use as a conditioner. Massage the product deep into your roots, and leave for 5-10 minutes until washing out with lukewarm water.
Why shell out all that money on heat protectants that don’t entirely do their job? You can always apply a pea-sized amount of avocado butter on the ends of your hair before blow-drying, straightening, or even curling the locks!
Does anyone suffer from an extremely dry scalp which just gets worse every time you wash it? Apply a small layer of avocado butter (or fresh avocado) on your scalp and massage well. The avocado will stimulate hair follicles and improve the blood circulation on your scalp – no more dry patches!
