What could be better than eating your way to good skin? If that sounds like a winning proposition, peel yourself an avocado. This delightful fruit – that’s right fruit not vegetable – is one of nature’s very own super foods. It’s packed with vitamins and essential amino acids for good health. Even better, avocados are great for your skin, too.
Chock full of critical fatty acids and antioxidants - the powerful Vitamin E the most notable - avocados help prevent wrinkles and skin aging. With its chemical properties and water-retaining qualities, avocado oil also acts as a moisturizer to promote soft and supple skin. And avocado oil is high in plant based fats called sterolins. They have been known to produce skin collagen, reduce age spots and heal skin damage from the sun and scars.
