Avocado, in some countries, is called the fruit of youth. They are creamy, buttery fruit grown in warm climates and often enjoyed in Mexican and South American cuisine. Also known as an alligator pear or butter fruit, the versatile avocado is the only fruit that provides a substantial amount of monounsaturated fat (the healthy kind). Avocados are a naturally nutrient-dense food and contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals.
Magical Fruit For Youthful Skin
Rich in vitamins A, E, D, B1, B2, K, PP and essential fatty acids, which are extremely beneficial for your skin, avocado oil can bring amazing benefits to your whole system and can be used both internally and externally. This oil is very effective in fighting ageing process, it easily absorbs into the skin and can be used for practically all skin types. Hydrating and softening the skin, avocado oil helps nourish it with natural beneficial nutrients and vitamins, stimulating collagen production.
During the summer avocado oil can protect your skin from damaging sun rays and during the winter – it can efficiently protect your skin from the cold and harsh weather. Avocado oil can also bring amazing benefits to your hair, thanks to the high concentration of monounsaturated fats, it helps to retain moisture inside the hair cuticles, strengthening and nourishing your locks. Avocado oil can also be used for hydrating the gentle skin around your eyes.
You can apply avocado oil to your face in the same way you would any other moisturizer – with a cotton wool pad or very clean fingers. You could use it as a day moisturizer but because it’s so rich, it seems better as a nightly facial moisturizer applied before bed. It is important to 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 minimal refinement of cold pressed avocado oil preserves more of the important plant sterols, chlorophyll, vitamin E and other antioxidants.
