Inside and out – avocados can give us something to really be excited about!
Most people have probably already heard about the wonderful benefits of including avocado in their diets with all those healthy fats, fibre and bag loads of nutrients. What most people don’t know is that whether you put an avocado in your mouth, on your skin, or pack it in your first aid kit – avocados have some truly exciting benefits.
Hidden inside those divine little ‘alligator pears’ are some wonderful anti-aging properties – oils that effectively fight against wrinkles, crow’s feet and skin discoloration – and are a powerful wound healer.
An unusual little fruit in that it is packed full of healthy oils instead of carbohydrates, avocados are full of antioxidant, antibacterial and antifungal rich oils that can not only do wonders in the fight against aging – but also have great healing properties that help repair wounds faster, treat scarring, and even benefit a range of itchy skin conditions!
Dabbing a little avocado oil or fresh avocado on a wound will speed up recovery and protect your skin as it heals. Avocado oil – is filled with antioxidants that banish free radicals that prevent healing – will restore your skin’s youthful moisture and keep it looking young and supple – is rich in moisturizing fatty acids easily absorbed by your skin.
What’s more – in addition to these natural antibacterial and antifungal properties – avocados contain around twenty essential nutrients including from a huge dose of Potassium to Vitamin E, Magnesium, Calcium, Folic Acid, Iron, Boron and the B-Vitamins.
All these nutrients, along with fatty acids – oleic and linoleic acid – help speed up and increase the repair and growth of new blood vessels and tissues, and boost collagen production. These fatty acids plump up your skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles!
Avocado Oil is great to keep on hand, whether you want to eat it or wear it. But Avocado Oil is thick, so if you’re going to use it as a moisturiser I recommend only using it at night or blending it with lighter oil, like coconut oil.
