We, like the rest of the world are crazy about avocados: these fruits are tasty, nutritious, containing healthy fats, vitamins b and E, so can be used for moisturizing the skin and hair. And avocado oil is known to help relieve the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis. Whether it’s avocado on toast, smoothies with avocado or a salad of avocado, we just can’t stop eating and “instagram” it.
In many ways, their incredible popularity obliged the famous avocado fan. Gwyneth Paltrow, Kim Kardashian and Gisele bündchen confess their love to him almost every interview, Meghan Markle prepares for Prince Harry’s a paste of avocado and Miley Cyrus even made the left triceps tattoo in honor of this fruit plants.
Enterprising fans of photogenic miracle products have already set up three avocado bar in three cities: Amsterdam, new York and Rome. And even in Moscow there was the Avocado Queen restaurant where you can sample dozens of dishes of avocado. SPLETNIK.RU understands why everyone is so in love with this exotic fruit.
In avocado are a lot of oleic acid, which supports skin moisture, repair damaged cells and reduces redness and irritation of the face, says Carrie Lindsay, makeup artist and founder of Shen Beauty.
That’s why avocado has for several years considered a fashionable ingredient in beauty remedies. Creams, facial masks, shampoos, serums and even lip gloss — the list is endless.
There are endless options of face masks from avocado, but we recommend to make a mix of pulp with other skin-nourishing ingredients that you find in the kitchen. Simply put, try to mix half superbaloo avocado with a teaspoon of honey (a great natural exfoliant and moisturizer) and apply on face for 10 minutes, then rinse. If you have problem skin, then add to the recipe a spoonful of natural yogurt — the lactic acid helps to kill bacteria.
Star dermatologist Rene Rolo says that avocado oil is a real sos-remedy for people with dry skin.
It contains large amount of vitamin E which is antioxidant, fatty acids, phytosterols and a substance called sterolin. There is evidence that phytosterols help the skin to recover— explains the expert.
That’s why avocado oil can be used for removing makeup. It is believed that it contains the highest concentration of healthy fats and vitamins A and E, therefore, do not rinse residues after face cleansing, gently massage into the skin of their ring fingers (don’t worry, no greasy film does not remain, all of which are quickly absorbed).
For the beauty of hair
Avocado oil can be used for the hair like any other oil. Nikisha Brunson and Cyprien of Kuan, the founder Urbanbushbabes.com (website dedicated to natural hair care), say that her gorgeous hair owe it to him.
Coconut oil sometimes dries hair, leaving them brittle, while the avocado oil makes it shiny (not to be confused with a greasy luster) and hydrated— said nikisha.
Famed colorist Rita Hazan says that it can and should be used as a deep conditioning agent because it contains Biotin, which strengthens hair.
Mask of avocado oil better to do for half an hour or an hour before washing your hair. Avocado oil (two tablespoons) necessary to preheat, then spread on all length of hair, excluding the roots, and wrap with a towel, and after 20-30 minutes rinse. Or you can apply the oil only on the ends on damp hair.
Finally, all know that beauty comes from within, right? Keri Gans, author of The Small Change Diet, says that the vitamin E contained in avocado oil can help to strengthen the skin and immune system. Nutritionists recommend even to cook food on avocado oil by using it instead of the usual olive or sunflower. By the way, he has one big advantage over the same coconut oil: it contains a lot of monounsaturated fats which are considered good for the heart.
By the way, if you’re worried about fat, Isla Bonita has good news for you. In its range of dietary avocado, which is 30 percent less fat. The Avocado ripen faster Light and slower to oxidize (turning black), the flesh juicier and brighter in flavor.
However, nutritionists explain: in a conventional avocados contain healthy fats, they can greatly reduce the level of harmful cholesterol. This buttery green fruit Mexican 322 calories and 29 grams of the very useful fat (while most fruit is mainly dominated by carbohydrates). Thus avocados can help reduce inflammation, improve digestion, reduce appetite (this ultimately will reduce the consumption of foods high in sugar and salt) and toxins. Thus, the flesh of the avocado, peel and seeds are rich in nutrients and will help to reduce weight.

And now about the unpredictable ways of its application.
Weird, but effective: the avocado is actually the best natural way to fight even with chronic unpleasant mouth odor. Thick creamy texture that cleanses your mouth when chewed, and, in addition, the nutritional enzymes in avocado soothes the stomach and small intestine. Often bad breath is caused by inflammation in the gastrointestinal system, and not something that you just ate, so the fact that avocado solves the problem at the root, making it a true magic bullet.
To soothe the skin after sunbathing
Oily creamy paste of avocado at room temperature, applied to a sunburn, helps to moisturize damaged skin and speed up the healing process. Your skin becomes sensitive when you tan, so it is important to use non-aggressive remedies, avocado is one of them. In addition, relatively new research has shown that fats and oils derived from avocado helps to reduce inflammation, so it’s not just the placebo effect.
To use instead of shaving cream
We can’t honestly imagine a situation in which we would have had avocado, but not shaving cream, but as they say, do not renounce. If you ever find yourself in this predicament, or, more likely, you just want beauty experiments, you know that the pulp of the avocado makes an excellent shaving product. We do not advise to run to the fridge and spread guacamole on his feet, but smooth, rich texture of avocado really looked like a delicate shaving cream.
To treat psoriasis
Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease that causes too rapid development of cells and the formation of inflamed, itchy spots (plaques) on the skin. If you watched the reality show “the Family Kardashian” (Keeping up with the Kardashians), you probably know that Kim is suffering from it for a long time. Instead of choosing a steroid cream or go to the edge of the world in search of effective treatment, try to apply avocado oil directly on the affected skin.
