Avocados Amazing Skin Benefits

Most people know avocados are a super food that has many health benefits if you eat them, but did you know you can get those same benefits by use them on your skin?

Avocados are rich in healthy fatty acids and antioxidants that are amazing for your skin to provide a youthful healthy glow.

Vitamin C provides collagen and elastin which bind skin cells together to help maintain skins firmness and structure.

Vitamin E assists in preventing free radical damage that breaks down the fats needed in your skin cells that provide firmness and prevents sagging, aging skin.  

Antioxidant Carotenoids are alpha carotene, beta carotene, and lutein; along with a few more. These free radical compounds provide amazing protection for your skin from the environmental damage that leads to fine lines, wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. Studies have shown that high amounts of carotenoids in your diet can improve skin tone and general appearance.

Moisturizing Monounsaturated Fatty Acids omega-9 fatty acid in avocados is linked to regenerating damaged skin cells and reducing facial redness and irritation. This is done by maintaining moisture in the epidermal layer of your skin, helping to make it soft and hydrated.

All of these vitamins and antioxidants create healthier, livelier, younger looking skin when eaten and applied as a face mask.
