Everyone knows how good avo’s are for you and how amazing the benefits of eating them and using the oil on your skin are. If you don’t then here’s why! If you want beautiful-looking skin without buying expensive skin products, make avocados a part of your diet. Aging will change your skin, giving you fine lines and wrinkles. But avocados can turn the clock back. On the one hand, avocado antioxidants like vitamins C and E can fight free radicals which damage the skin. On the other, some other chemicals in avocado oil stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastin fibers.
If you get tired of eating them, you can apply avocados directly to your skin for a glow. Put mashed avocado on your face to wipe away signs of aging, or mix avocado with raw honey and yogurt to get rid of dead skin cells for a radiant and youthful glow. If you stayed out in the sun too long, apply avocado directly to sunburned skin to ease pain.
Avocados contain poly- and monounsaturated fatty acids, which protect your skin. Monounsaturated fats keep the top layer of your skin moist so it’s soft and healthy looking. Polyunsaturated fatty acids guard skin from sun damage and protect against symptoms of skin sensitivity and inflammation, according to the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University.
