Skin Benefits of Avocado Oil
Wondering if avocado oil will clear up your skin and make it glow?
Avocado oil has many skin benefits both when ingested or when applied topically. It’s great for its anti-aging properties, can influence collagen production, it can help clear skin and can even be used in hair for its nutritious and powerful benefits. Let’s explore all the ways our skin and body can benefit from the application of avocado oil.
How your skin and face will benefit from Avocado Oil
Avocado oil is a carrier oil, like olive oil and jojoba oil. Carrier oils, unlike most essential oils, usually come from the nuts or seeds of a fruit. Carrier oils are exactly what they sound like, they’re an ideal base for your other essential oils, and help your skin absorb the ingredients of your favorite skin products more readily.
Here’s how your skin will benefit from Avocado Oil:
Acts as an Amazing Moisturizer- avocado oil has been made famous due to its high concentration of vitamin E, which is easily absorbed by the skin. It strengthens the skin’s lipid barrier function, which helps us retain that added moisture. The potassium in avocado oil is a key element in new skin cell growth, which keeps the skin feeling soft and well moisturized. The lecithin in avocado oil acts as an emollient which also helps soften skin and trap in that needed moisture.
Clears Skin- the beta carotene in avocado oil can clear pores, skin and helps treat acne. It’s antiinflammatory properties reduce irritation as it prevents oil from building up in the pores. Clogged pores, as you can imagine, is the building ground for acne. This property also makes it a great oil, ironically enough, for treating and preventing oily skin.
Avocado Oil anti-aging Benefits- besides for being a great moisturizer on your entire body, avocado oil also possesses impressive anti-aging properties. The fatty acids and antioxidants improve collagen production and the elasticity of skin, reducing fine lines and premature aging of the skin.
- Can Protect the skin from UV damage- The vitamin E in avocado oil helps fight off free radicals and can repair UV damage. The polyhydroxylated fatty alcohols can help treat UVB damage after over exposing one’s skin to the sun.
Avocado oil contains an abundance of antioxidants, fatty-acids, vitamins and minerals that help improve many skin conditions and can effectively hydrate skin. When added to your all natural sunscreen, it can help protect your skin against UV damage, and is great and safe for both the face and body.
