What Makes Eight Great: Avocado Oil – 8 of 14
I think I have always been confused about the Avocado. Is it a fruit? Is it a vegetable?
Here is what seems to be the truth: Although it is classed as a vegetable, the avocado is really a fruit since it has a stone.
BUT let’s stay focused on what is really important... our skin… Avocado Oil yields a rich and extremely deep penetrating oil, rich in Vitamins A, B, D, and E, lecithin, as well as potassium… known as the youth mineral. It furthermore contains proteins, beta-carotene and more than twenty percent essential unsaturated fatty acids.
It is especially interesting to me to learn how this small green, wrinkled skinned fruit (or vegetable, if you don’t want to change teams) is packed full of outstanding benefits to the skin. It makes me want to just put it directly on my skin and have a bowl of chips while I bask in this fabulous herbal skin care.
So grab a Margarita while I list all the fabulous things this oil does for your skin:
High in sterolins (plant steroids) which are reputed to reduce the appearance of age spots
Softens the skin and imparts a superior moisturizing effect
Hydrates sun or climate damaged skin
Assists in the regeneration and rejuvenation of the skin
Significantly increases the amount of collagen in the skin
Absorbs into the deep tissue
Ideal for mature skin
Helps relieve dryness and itching
Anti-wrinkle, anti-bacterial, and anti-oxidant properties
