People fell in love with avocado because it is a healthy fat that offers a range of benefits to the human body and tastes delicious. Not before long, this delicious fruit found its way into the world of beauty and skin care in the form of avocado oil. Avocado oil is one of the best ingredients that you can add into your skin care routine. Its popularity has been such in the recent past that it is really giving coconut oil (one of the traditional heavyweights in the world of skin care) a run for its money. OROGOLD Cosmetics examines some of the main reasons why avocado oil is so beneficial for your skin care routine.
Avocado oil is rich in unsaturated fats and proteins, both of which are beneficial for the skin. It is also full of the omega-3 fatty acid, the same fatty acid that gives fish oil its unsurpassed popularity. Furthermore, avocados are rich in sterolin and antioxidants like vitamins A, D and E. Sterolin is known to promote softer looking skin and diminish the appearance of age spots. Antioxidants work wonders in reducing free radical damage, thereby giving the skin a younger look. Finally, avocado oil is rich in potassium and lecithin, ingredients that are beneficial for the skin and the hair.
Protects the skin from aging
Free radical damage causes the skin to break because it breaks down the collagen and elastin in your skin. Avocado oil is rich in antioxidants such as vitamin E that prevent this damage and protect the skin from oxidizing. The presence of omega-3 fatty acids also offers enhanced protection from the harmful UV rays of the skin, thereby diminishing the chances of age spots, skin cancer and sunburns.
Suits all types of skin
Avocado oil benefits all skin types because it can be used as a part of your day-to-day skin care routine without making you worry about any side effects. It also suits people with all types of skin and acts as a natural moisturizer for your skin. Avocado oil can easily penetrate into the deeper lying layers of your skin to stimulate the production of collagen, improve the skin’s elasticity and reduce its dryness. This also makes avocado oil very useful for people suffering from skin issues such as itchy skin, eczema and psoriasis.
Excellent ingredient for your eye care
Avocado oil can be used to protect the sensitive skin around your eyes, diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles and make your eye area look smoother and younger.
An excellent addition to your nightly skin care routine
Avocado oil boasts of numerous restorative properties which makes it an ideal ingredient to look for in your nightly skin care products. Adding avocado oil extract to your nightly skin care routine can really go a long way in reducing the skin redness, getting rid of fine lines, making the skin look fresher and younger, improving skin elasticity and erasing fine lines from the surface of your skin.
OROGOLD recommends you to add avocado oil into your skin care routine immediately for long lasting results. With the spring season just around the corner, you would also do well to add the avocado fruit into your diet.
