Avocado is one my favorite foods to eat. I think I could it eat it everyday. I have always known it was healthy to eat yet it never ceases to amaze at just how much avocado benefits our bodies both inside and out.
The other day I was visiting with my dear friend, who is also an esthetician. Another friend and myself were there for an at home spa day. Gotta love those right? In the moment, she decided to whip out an avocado and spread all its splendors on my friends face.
As it turns out avocado is great for our skin. Because it is rich in antioxidants it helps prevent aging, this occurs both through eating it and putting it on your skin.
It also nourishes our skin providing a soft, glowing complexion and a great natural way to treat psoriasis, a condition that causes redness and irritation of the skin.
There is a wide variety of beauty recipes in which you can use this amazing super fruit and give your skin a healthy boost of love.
I highly recommend reading the article Avocados offer remarkable benefits for skin health for a great in-depth look into how beneficial it just is, with great insights and tips from Doctors and other health/beauty gurus.
Beyond the benefits of putting it on your face here are just a few more reasons avocado should be on your grocery list.
1. Contains over 25 essentials nutrients including – A, B, C, E, and K it also has copper, magnesium, iron and potassium. Bananas are known for their potassium but it takes eating two to three of them to get the equivalent of what is in one avocado.
2. Is great for a healthy heart – Our hearts like the B6 and folic acid in avocado.
3. Controls Blood Pressure – The high levels of potassium helps with this one.
4. Free Radicals Don’t Like Us Eating It – The powerful antioxidants present in avocados fights free radicals that can lead to viruses and bacteria growth. They compromise our immune system and can be caused from environmental factors such as pollution, smoke and herbicides, the antioxidants in avocado defend us against them.
