Avocado Beauty Hacks to Improve Your Hair and Skin

Avocados are more than just guacamole or a yummy toast topping. They can nourish your hair, skin, and fight the aging process. This superfood that is part of the berry family contains monounsaturated fats, otherwise known as the “good” fat. Smashing them releases the oils that contain healthy vitamins and minerals. We have a few avocado beauty hacks that will rejuvenate your hair and skin.

Face

Avocado improves your skin health by boosting moisture levels in the outer layer of your skin and keeps it looking supple. It also diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, heals dry skin, and reduces redness.

If you suffer from dry skin, you know how difficult it is to keep the right balance of moisture.
Serums, creams, and lotions with not enough moisturize can leave your skin looking dry and dull.
Meanwhile, products with moisture overload can cause acne breakouts.

Avocados are perfect for those with dry and damaged skin because of their high sterolin content.
Sterolins act as a natural moisturizer that repairs damage while softening and smoothing the skin.
They reduce the appearance of age spots and scars and penetrate the skin’s layers insuring the deep tissue is moisturized and nourished.

You may notice the surge of commercial beauty products such as toning serums and creams that now contain avocado oil. Thankfully, you don’t have to spend a fortune to get the benefits of avocados.
