Beauty Benefits of Avocado Oil

Many people enjoy the numerous benefits of cooking with avocado oil, but did you know it can also work wonders for your skin? While it’s important to feel healthy on the inside, it’s just as important that we look and feel healthy on the outside. Here at AVOCARE, we’ve been using avocado oil on our hair and skin for years to add moisture and vitamins that keep us looking and feeling our best. Even celebrity Lupita Nyong’o believes avocado oil is the secret to her beautiful skin. After reviewing various research studies, below is a list of reasons for how avocado oil can be beneficial for your skin:

Increases Collagen – According to this study by The U.S. National Library of Medicine, avocado oil actually increases the amount of collagen in the skin. This translates to faster skin repair and anti-aging benefits, as well as thicker, more resilient skin, keeping you looking younger for longer!

Hydrating – During this time of year, it’s normal for your skin to be more dry and flakey than usual. According to esthetician Renee Rouleau, avocado oil contains high amounts of vitamin E and antioxidants that hydrate better than coconut oil. Not only is avocado oil an effective skin moisturizer, but it can also be used to hydrate your hair. Check out this article to find a great avocado oil hair mask!

Natural Makeup Remover – Using avocado oil as an eye makeup remover is becoming more popular. It’s completely natural, making it a great alternative to the chemical filled makeup removers at the store. Just pour a little on cotton pad and swipe over your eyes!
