If you’re obsessed with avocado, you’re not alone. There are many who absolutely love it and try to incorporate it into their diet as much as possible. But what about making it part of your beauty regime? Avocado oil can be great for the health of your skin, and the following are just some of the ways you can get going on using it to help make your skin look fabulous.
Put it in Your Bath
In today’s fast-paced world, having time to take a bath is a much-appreciated little luxury, so you may as well make the most of it. Putting about a quarter of a cup of avocado oil in your bath water can make your skin look and feel incredible, and you can even up the scent factor by adding your favorite essential oils. However, here’s the deal. Oil+tubs = slippery surfaces. It’s a must to be extremely careful getting in and out of the tub so you don’t fall, not to mention you’re going to have to really clean the tub after to get rid of any residue.
Did you know that avocados are said to be excellent for providing moisture to the skin and for fighting against aging? With that said, dig in! Avocados can be great for your skin health, so start finding some fantastic avocado recipes that you’ve been meaning to try.
Make a Hair Mask
Avocado oil isn’t just great for your hair, but it can also help add moisture to a dry scalp. Mix it with a bit of honey in a mug and microwave it until it’s warm (not hot!). Put a quarter of a cup of oats into the mug, blend it all together, massage it into your hair and scalp, then leave it for fifteen minutes before thoroughly rinsing it out.
Use as a Moisturizer
Avocado oil is said to reduce dryness and inflammation which makes it a great option to improve your skin health. When you get out of the shower, apply a bit onto your skin focusing especially on dry and rough patches. Massage in using a circular motion.
Make a Face Mask
Your face is out there for the world to see, and using avocado oil could help make your skin look better than ever. To make a face mask, smash an avocado, put in a bit of avocado oil, then mix in some oats until it’s a thick consistency you’re happy with. Make sure to avoid your eyes and nostrils! Leave the mask on for about fifteen minutes before rinsing it off with warm water, followed by splashing with cool water.
If you have any skin sensitivities, make sure you consult with a doctor first before trying any of the aforementioned techniques and recipes. Also, you should always do a spot test first to ensure that your skin will react kindly with the avocado oil.
With winter underway, there’s no better time than now to see what avocado oil can do for your skin health. Who knew it had so many benefits!
