It’s no lie that I am simply obsessed with using fresh natural ingredients for health reasons.
If you’ve read my other blogs, you already know how much I love coconut oil and all of its benefits. And well, I have another obsession – Avocado! The avocado fruit not only helps to make delicious guacamole (yum!), but the oil squeezed from the fruit actually has a bunch of nutritional and health value. So it’s really the avocado oil that I’m obsessed with.
Here are some ways that avocado oil is amazing for your skin:
- First, and foremost, like many oils, avocado oil smooths your skin. Avocado oil is rich in vitamin E and that is that main component that prevents your skin from becoming inflamed or itchy and maintaining its softness. The antioxidants in the oil have been found to be able to even smooth sunburned skin. Recently, there has been research showing it might be effective against skin related diseases such as eczema.
- Avocado oil has the ability to penetrate deep into the skin, unlike other oils. This helps to achieve quicker results and helps to keep your skin hydrated. And if you have dry skin- you’re in luck! Those with dry skin are more likely to have better results when using avocado oil in a moisturizer.
- Another amazing effect avocado oil has on the skin is anti-aging properties that provide protection from free radicals. It helps your skin cells to function properly, even while getting “attacked” by these free radicals. Plus, the plant nutrient Lutein promotes the high water content and elasticity of skin.
- Good in sunscreens. Some natural oils make great effective sunscreens, and avocado oil is one of them. In fact, it is even more effective than some artificial alternatives. Avocado oil is high in monounsaturated fats that form a protective layer all over your skin, shielding you from the damaging effects of the sun’s rays.
