We know that consuming avocados can also help increase excellent nutrients and antioxidants from other plant foods, primarily due to their high concentration of good fats. There has never been a better time to adopt new healthy habits and incorporate healthy ingredients into your diet and beauty routine. If you’re looking for some ingredients to include in your beauty list, be sure to add avocado to that list. Here are five amazing beauty benefits of consuming avocado. 

Improve The Health Of Skin

Did you know that many international celebrities and models have opted to consume avocado in different ways to improve their skin? Celebrities like Victoria Beckham apply avocado as a natural face mask to maintain her flawless elastic skin.

One of the reasons why consuming avocado can improve your skin condition is because it contains Vitamin C and E. These two sources play a huge role in having brighter and baby-soft skin.

If you want to look youthful, this excellent fruit can also help anti-ageing and stimulating collagen production. The Vitamin E in avocado can make those wrinkles less noticeable, and you can say bye-bye to those skincare products that are no longer useful! 

Moisturise and Boost Hair Growth

Many hair products have now contained avocado as one of the key ingredients containing Vitamin D and Vitamin B6 that helps get super soft hair. If your dry and frizzy hair are bothering you, you should try applying an avocado hair mask on your hair as a weekly home remedy.

You can DIY an avocado hair mask by mashing a ripe and peeled avocado. Then, add two tablespoons of olive oil or coconut oil. Apply to your hair and wear a shower cap; let it sit for at least 30 minutes. You can see the result after doing it multiple times!

Avocado is also an excellent solution for someone who has trouble with slow hair growth. The biotin, protein, and minerals can help with hair growth at a faster pace. Next time, if you are facing the issue or currently facing the same problem, it is time for you to apply this magnificent fruit to your hair. 

Promote Nails Health

Avocado is a lifesaver, and if you have not stored one bottle in your bathroom or pantry, you should grab one immediately. Avocado oils contain multiple vitamins and antioxidants; they can rejuvenate and repair dry and damaged nails.

You can make a bottle of nail oil by combining half a cup of olive oil and avocado oil into a bottle. If you do not like the scent of both oils, you can even add a few drops of essential oil, such as lavender, rose, or even ylang-ylang. Massage your nails gently once to twice a day; you can see the noticeable result over time. 

Get Kissable Lips

As much as we don’t show our lips that often anymore (if you are still wearing a mask), we should never ignore our dry and chapped lips. Celebrities like Priyanka Chopra, Olivia Culpro, and even Mariah Carey make their lip scrub and apply it as a daily routine to ensure their lips are always hydrating and plump.

Guess what? You can make your lip scrub with just two ingredients at home as well! The avocado oil contains an excellent fatty acid, which is superb for wound-healing, and it will make your lip smoother.

Simply combine half of a cup of avocado oil and brown sugar in an air-tightened jar. Apply the mixture with your fingers and gently exfoliate your lips for a minute. Once you have applied it, wipe it with a wet cloth or wash your lips with water, you can take an extra step to moisturise your lips by using avocado lips to keep them hydrated and plumped.  You can store your avocado lip scrub in your fridge and take it out whenever you want to apply it. You can also make these babies for your friends and family on a special occasion. We are sure they are going to love it! 

Weight Loss and Belly Fat

Are you struggling with weight loss or trying to make your belly slightly smaller? If you have not added avocado to your diet, you should start it immediately. This superfood has healthy fat that can help you burn belly fat.

Regardless of being vegan or non-vegan, it is inevitable that we tend to have a high carbs diet as it is more filling and budget-friendly. In the long run, consuming a high carb diet can be detrimental to our health and gain weight quickly.

Avocado is listed as a superfood as it provides healthy fat, protein, vitamins, and other essential nutrients that our bodies need. You can have it as breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even snacks. If you are a big fan of smoothies, you should add Simplot Harvest Fresh™ Avocados, Avocado Pulp to your smoothie. The fat and fibre in this superfood will make you feel more filling, leading to eating less and suppressing your appetite.

Now that you know these amazing benefits of avocado for your health! We would suggest you consume in moderation. It is also advisable to check with your doctor regarding your health and diet!
