Beauty Benefits of Avocado

“Not Yet, Not Yet, Not Yet, Eat Me Now, Too Late” – Avocados

All jokes aside, there’s nothing quite like a perfectly ripe avocado. Whether you’re smashing it on your toast, blending it up in a smoothie or simply slicing it for a salad – the taste and health benefits can’t be beat! Diet aside, there are also many beauty benefits to reap from avocados. That’s right, you can put them IN your face and ON your face.

Moisturize Your Skin

Avocados contain natural oils that can penetrate deep into your skin to help with dry and flaky spots. No fancy face mask required – simply spread it across any skin that needs a little extra love, leave it on for 10-15 minutes and rinse with warm water.

Treat a Sunburn

We love a good day at the beach – but a sunburn is nobody’s friend. If you went a little too light with the sunscreen, pain and chafing can be eased by spreading avocado directly to the affected area.

Repair Damaged Hair

Ready to get a little crafty in the kitchen? A simple hair mask can be made to quench your dry locks with just avocado, olive oil, and an egg. Mix 2 egg yolks, 2 tbsp of olive oil and 1/2 ripe avocado together until it forms a thick paste. Apply to hair and leave on for 20 minutes, and then rinse and prepare for compliments!
