Nature has really done wonders in certain ways, such that what you consider edible can be used in various forms. Implicit in this is that as long as you are a human being, what you use in one part of your body can equally be used in other parts of the body. The avocado is a great example.
Th avocado might just be the world’s most perfect food. You can blend it into pasta sauce, bake them in a pie and maybe cut it into avocado roses, but it is also packed with antioxidants, vitamin C, vitamin E and moisturizing fats that can do wonders for your skin and hair. To this effect, here are, five ways to include your favorite food avocado in your beauty routine;
Mash up half an avocado in a bowl, add the juice of half a lemon and a drizzle of olive oil. Coat your dry hair with the mixture, then wrap your head in an old towel. Leave the mask on for twenty minutes, then rinse off in the shower. Repeat once a week to get markedly softer hair
Vitamin C is a common ingredient in eye serums, so it’s no surprise that sticking a slice of cold avocado under each eye for fifteen minutes is a great way to de-puff and eliminate dark circles.
3.FACE AND BODY MASK:
You could get fancy and add honey, egg whites, or yogurt to your mask, but you can keep it simple this time; mush half of a ripe avocado, slather it on your face and chest, and let it sit for fifteen minutes before rinsing it off in the shower. Repeat once a week to keep your skin supple.
If you spend a little too much time by the pool this time, mash up a cold avocado and let it sit on the burn for fifteen minutes. Repeat as necessary to soothe and cool the burn and wear more sunscreen next time, okay?
5.EXFOLIATING HAND SCRUB:
Mix a half an avocado with two teaspoons of coarse kosher salt in a bowl. Slap the mixture on your hands and gently rub it on your skin for two minutes, then rinse it off in the sink. The scrub simultaneously removes dead skin cells and moisturizes.
Yay! This is absolutely multitasking. Get your avocado to work now!
