Benefits of Avocado for Skin
Avocado is more than just a delicious addition to our toast, it also has many incredible hair and skin-loving qualities as an ingredient in our daily skin care in the form of avocado butter, and avocado oil, so I have put together this guide to the best natural Avocado skin care.
No brunch is complete without a side of Avocado, but no skin care routine is complete without a few great Avocado-packed goodies either! We might not think of it as a typical skin care ingredient other than in our homemade DIY Avocado face masks, but Avocado is actually one of my favourite natural skin care ingredients, and in my opinion it is totally underrated! Avocado Oil is incredibly hydrating and packed with beneficial nutrients, making it the perfect natural defence against dry skin as well as a superstar in natural anti-ageing skin care.
Avocado nutrient properties
Avocado is naturally rich in skin-loving antioxidants and Omega 3 + 6 essential fatty acids as well as Vitamins E, C and K - perfect for boosting our skin no matter whether we are enjoying it on toast or in our facial moisturiser!1 Thanks to its deeply hydrating properties, and nutrient benefits, Avocado Oil makes an incredible ingredient in natural skin care because of its ability to deliver rich moisture to dry skin, helping to prevent wrinkles, fine lines and creasing. This makes Avocado perfect in anti-ageing treatments, working to keep skin feeling soft, smooth, plump and hydrated.

For an intensive natural skin care treatment that works its magic overnight, try the 100% Pure Retinol Restorative Overnight Balm. This solid facial balm contains creamy Avocado Butter, Sunflower Seed Oil and Olive Oil to help supply the skin with those essential fatty acids, while Beeswax locks in moisture and the all-important naturally derived Retinol works to brighten skin tone and help fade unevenness. This anti-ageing night cream is recommended for use at night time only due to the potent active ingredients.

The Andalou Naturals Avo Cocoa Skin Food Mask is one of my absolute favourite natural Avocado face masks.
