Three uses for avocados – besides guacamole!

0

Moisturise skin

The natural oils in an avocado can penetrate deep into the skin, helping to soften and hydrate dry and flaky patches. Simply spread it across your body, leave on for 10 to 15 minutes, shower or bathe in lukewarm water and pat dry.

Soothe and nourish dry facial skin

You’ve got to be extra careful these days and read the ingredients labels on beauty products. Steer clear of all the junk with a DIY facial mask made out of avocado, raw honey and yogurt to slough away dead skin cells and restore a more youthful glow to your face.

Repair damaged and parched hair

A brilliant spin on this do-it-yourself facial is an avocado, olive oil and egg hair mask. Sure, it’s sticky, but you won’t regret slathering it on when you end up with super smooth and luminous strands.
