We all know that avocado’s are good for us. Nicknamed “green gold”, avocados contain nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, but did you know you can use avocado’s in your skin care? Below are two easy-to-make avocado beauty masks for your hands and hair by Avocados From Mexico.
Avocados are a cost-effective staple for DIY beauty treatments! As an all-natural moisturizer that can rejuvenate and soften skin and hair, avocados contain four per cent of the daily value of vitamin E (an antioxidant that protects body tissue from damage caused by free radicals which are believed to play a role in aging). Avocados can be used to make hydrating face masks, remedies for frizzy hair, dark circle and puffy eye correctors and are a natural salve for dry hands!
