7 Benefits of Avocado for Skin and Hair

7 Benefits of Avocado for Skin and Hair

Avocado is a fruit that contains benefits for nearly every part of your body, and has many benefits to your beauty, too. So today, I want to share with you the benefits avocados provide for skin and hair.

Skin care products available in the market use avocado especially in products for dry skin. It is also used for other skin types as well. While using avocado directly on the face is a popular natural beauty treatment, many people have found that just eating avocado regularly can do wonders for their complexion. Avocados are rich in healthy fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants that can improve your skin from the inside.

Avocado is also like a superhero for dry hair. The monounsaturated fatty acid content in avocado oil is higher than extra virgin olive oil— one of the main reasons it is so good for your hair. When applied directly in a hair mask, monounsaturated fats can moisturize, nourish and strengthen hair strands

Avocado Benefits for your Skin and Hair.

1. High concentration of fibers

A whole avocado fruit contains 10 grams of fibers. Fiber is a great way to keep acne at bay, help the skin glow and keep skin youthful. It also strengthens the hair follicles and facilitates production of melanin.

 

2. Contains vitamins C, E, K, folic acid, magnesium, and potassium.

Being rich in vitamin E makes it a good source of anti-oxidants. This helps protect the skin from wrinkles and damage caused by sun, smoke, and pollution, which is why avocados are perfect for healthy skin.

3. 60% of the fat in avocado is monosaturated and it contains no cholesterol.

Monosaturated fats are heart-healthy. A study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that 0.5 to 1.5 avocado per day is the most effective way in lowering cholesterol without decreasing the HDL (healthy) cholesterol. These unsaturated oils in avocado are in the second position after olive oil. Scientists believe that these healthy fats help to maintain the water level in your skin and supply the skin with the fats that keep the skin healthy. This means less itchy, healthy-looking, glowing skin.

 

4.  Low level of carbohydrates.

That is why you will not gain much weight when adding avocados to your diet!

5. Contains omega-3

Omega-3 is good for your joints, skin, vision, brain, heart, helps lower bad cholesterol levels and even boosts fertility. Omega-3 is a well known anti-ager and an anti-inflammatory. Adding avocado to your diet also helps control acne.

 

6. Perfect moisturizer especially for dry skin.

Avocados draw water into the skin and plump it up, giving it a more youthful quality. They also minimizing the appearance of fine lines.

7. Avocado gives you shiny hair.

Your hair needs proteins and healthy fat to keep it healthy and shiny. Avocados are one of the good sources for healthy fats, omega-3, as well as biotins (vitamin B).

As you can see, avocados are rich in many natural beauty factors. And this makes it necessary to add it to your diet to get the advantage of all those avocado benefits.
