The avocado craze is far from over. Trust me.
With there being avocado everything these days, you might as well know all the benefits that are jam packed into this amazing fruit.
Yes. Technically, it is a fruit.
Avocados are not only amazing for your skin (they’ve got amazing hydration and antioxidant powers), but they’re also great for weight and digestion.
Here are some super easy avocado hacks to get both better skin and hair:
1. BRIGHTEN YOUR SKIN
Avocados are truly a life savor when it comes to remedying dry skin.
Mashup 1/2 of an avocado into a bowl and simply spread an even layer of the stuff across your face.
Leave on for about ten minutes, then rinse.
Say “hello” to beautifully hydrated and brightened skin.
2. Quench Your Thirsty Hair
Say “goodbye” to dry and thirsty locks.
Use avocado oil to nourish your strands.
I recommend SheaMoisture’s Beauty Hack 100% Pure Avocado Oil, which can be purchased at Ulta for just around $10.
3. Avocados Make For Great Face Scrubs
If you’re looking to achieve healthy, glowing skin, exfoliating is the way to go.
Exfoliating clears away dead skin cells, leaving you with bright, fresh skin. This then allows moisturizers to penetrate better.
But sometimes, you need a scrub that isn’t so intense. Right?
So if you’re looking for something that is hydrating but gentle, mix a small dollop of avocado into your scrub and gently massage in.
4. Eat It
Did you know avocados contain vitamins A, C, E, and K?
And not only that, but they are also full of antioxidants which can help protect your skin from environmental damage.
Not enough for you?
It’s raw, monounsaturated fats can also give your skin a more youthful and beautiful appearance.
But keep in mind that portion control is a must. So, you probably shouldn’t have guac for breakfast, lunch AND dinner.
Even though avocados are amazing, too much of ANYTHING is never good.
