Most people love eating avocados (in salads, as guacamole, and on sandwiches), but did you know that you can use Amazing Avocados for DIY beauty treatments too?! Not only is this delicious fruit (yeah, you read that right – fruit) high in nutrients (when consumed), it’s emollient and vitamin-rich properties make it an equally fantastic at-home, natural skin care and hair treatment.
According to Tracey Wallace (contributor to LiveStrong.com), “The fruit is known to improve heart health, aid in weight loss, (and) provide a good source of vitamins B, C and E… Besides all of the internal benefits, avocados have received a well-earned reputation for keeping skin looking young, beautiful and moist.” This makes it especially beneficial for people who are looking to combat dry or aging skin. That’s where the Amazing Avocado Face Treatment comes in handy.
Here’s how to whip up a batch of this super-powerful Amazing Avocado Face Treatment:
1. Peel 1 ripe Amazing Avocado
2. Scoop contents (avocado flesh) out into a small bowl
3. Mash thoroughly with a fork or spoon until smooth consistency
4. Mix in 2 tsp. of Honey: “Moisturizing and soothing honey is good for dry skin” [The Body Shop Book]
5. Apply mixture to clean face and leave on for 20 minutes
6. Wash face and gently pat dry
In addition, the fatty oils found in avocados act as a moisturizer for dry hair and scalps, making it an excellent hair treatment. If your hair is damaged (due to heat and styling products, over-processing, or coloring), you’ll love how silky and smooth the Amazing Avocado Hair Treatment makes your mane look and feel.
Here are easy-to-follow instructions for making the Amazing Avocado Hair Treatment:
1. Peel 1 ripe Amazing Avocado and scoop contents (avocado flesh) into a small bowl
2. Mash thoroughly with a fork or spoon until smooth consistency
4. Apply mixture all over hair and scalp
5. Wrap hair up in a shower cap and leave on for 20 minutes
6. Hop in the shower, shampoo twice (or use a clarifying shampoo), and condition as usual
Voila! In just a few easy steps, you’ve improved the look and texture of your skin and hair with Amazing Avocados. The next time you’re at the market, toss a few of these fabulous fruits into your basket, and enjoy some leisurely time at home pampering yourself with these DIY beauty treatments.
