From the looks of it, an avocado would not be the first fruit you’d reach for in the fruit bowl. (Yes, that’s right. Contrary to what many believe, avocado is a fruit). But underneath this uniquely pear-shaped fruit, with its alligator-like bumpy skin, lays a cornucopia of vitamins and essential amino acids for good health with avocado oil being particularly good for skin.
Topping the avocado oil’s list of healthful ingredients are Vitamins A, D and E, which cause the skin to be suppler, and so are particularly good for sun-damaged, dry or aged skin. Owing to its chemical properties and water-retaining qualities, avocado oil also acts as a moisturizer to promote soft and supple skin. And it is high in plant based fats called sterolins, which have been known to reduce age spots, heal skin damage from the sun and scars and produce skin collagen. Avocado oil may help delay wrinkles and other signs of skin aging by preventing, and perhaps even reversing collagen breakdown.
Why not help your spa and massage clients enhance their skin for an evening out or a special occasion with a treatment that includes avocado oil? We recommend Little Black Dress Treatment. It contains Micro-Buff Body Polish that features avocado oil among its ingredients. This quick all-over makeover covers only the exposed areas (arms, legs, décolleté) and leaves skin ultra-soft, smooth and glowing. It’s perfect for wedding days, formal evenings and date night.
