Do you love guacamole as much as we do? Great news: Avocados are also good for your skin, hair and nails. When you eat them, you take a big portion of vitamin B, C, E and K. Additionally, you feed your body with anti-ageing antioxidants, folate, magnesium, potassium and lutein.
Katja and I spotted some organic beauty treatments with avocado. Here are our favorites!
Homemade avocado face mask
Mash up half 1/2 avocado and mix it with 2 tablespoons of natural yoghurt and 1 teaspoon of honey. Apply the mixture on your skin and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. The avocado’s antioxidants reduce your wrinkles, yoghurt restores your pH balance. Additionally, the mask has moisturizing properties due to the honey.
Organic hand cream
If you read through the ingredients of your care products, you will be shocked: Many items contain silicones, paraffins and preservatives. The beauty industry still uses chemicals that are toxic and carcinogenic – do you really want to rub this stuff into your skin?
That is why we are always looking for organic beauty products made of natural ingredients. We spotted a vegan hand cream by STUDIO BOTANIC with avocado oil – and tested it.
It is quickly absorbed and you won’t see any fingerprints on your smartphone. All the avocado’s benefits, such as moisture, vitamins and antioxidants, will make your hands smooth.
The cream has a subtle smell of peppermint and mandarines. Additionally, it is certified by NATRUE, a non-profit association that sets the highest standards for organic cosmetic and care products.
Avocado facial scrub
You can easily create your own “green” face peeling with two simple ingredients: avocado and brown sugar. Mash up 1/2 avocado with three tablespoons of sugar. Then you can gently massage it into your face (except for your eye area!) and wash it off with warm water. Old skin particles will fall off, your face will look refreshed and smooth.
Put on some moisturizer, massage your hands, relax and sleep well! We wish you sweet dreams – they might contain avocados!
