Here at beautyheaven HQ, we LOVE avocado. Whether it’s in a delicious guacamole dip, smashed on toast or spread on crackers with crumbled fetta (is your mouth watering yet?), we can’t get enough of the stuff. And that’s just how we eat it. Avocados are a staple in our beauty routines, too!
Rich in antioxidants, monounsaturated fatty acids, and vitamins C and E, the green fruit is amazing for firming, hydrating and softening skin. It can also help to protect the skin from environmental damage and regenerate damaged skin cells.
Yep, it can work wonders in improving your skin’s health, so if you’re partial to a good face mask, watch our video above to learn how to whip up a nourishing avocado face mask. Plus, we’ve got a delish three-ingredient guacamole recipe you won’t be able to resist!
