Is Avocado Oil Your New Staple Skincare Item?

Take a look at your Instagram feed and you’ll find a glorious amount of avocado toast flat-lays beautifully constructed on your timeline. While I have always been aware of avocado’s because of their presence in guacamole, I never thought of it as an oil that can be used for my hair and skin. 


An all-natural solution to dry skin

While essential oils can be used by anyone, those with dry skin types benefit from them the most because they work as hydrating agents but, avocado oil has even greater benefits. It contains a high amount of Vitamin E, which is an antioxidant, protecting the skin by limiting the production of free radicals.


Avocado oil does a lot of good for the skin.

Being a deeply penetrating oil, it gets deep into epidermis layers and fixes moisture in the skin. This action helps with plumping fine lines and softening rough skin. 


Protect your skin from UV rays

Now that summer is out in full force, using products with SPF are imperative to decrease sunburn. Avocado oil has a low level of UV protection (SPF 6-8), with a high vitamin and sterolin content. In case you didn’t know, sterolins are compounds that are anti-inflammatory and in the case of avocado oil, they can help heal sun damage and age spots.


Your new solution to maintain hydrated skin

Four main things to take away from what we just told you is that avocado oil is ;

1.     high in vitamins,

2.     works as a low-level sunscreen,

3.     contributes to the hydration of your skin

4.     and it reduces fine lines.
