Avocado is a beautiful, creamy, indulgent fruit that continues to land in our salads and smoothies. Just as avocado can nourish your body from the inside, this superfood is just as favorable for the outside - i.e. your skin, hair, and nails. 

Rich in vitamins and antioxidants, avocado can be eaten or applied externally in order to reap its benefits. Applying an avocado face mask, for example, is an excellent way to nourish and enrich your skin and the best part is, it's 100% natural. 

Hydrating, soothing and softening, the benefits of avocado applied externally are extensive. In fact, there are different types of DIY avocado masks you can make to suit your own specific skin type. Whether you have dry skin, acne-prone skin or oily skin, scroll down to give our diy face masks a try. 


Avocados really are amazing for the skin. They're packed with various nutrients that address different skin issues and are an excellent natural addition to your skin care routine. 

First up, avocados contain naturals oils that can deeply hydrate and soften skin. This not only eases dry skin, but reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Next up, they're rich in antioxidants such as vitamin c and vitamin e. This can help protect skin cells from free radical damage, a powerful anti-aging aid. Combined with its lutein content, a carotenoid that stimulates skin elasticity, avocado is an excellent fruit to promote youthful skin. And to top it all off, avocados also contain oleic acid and chlorophyll which help reduce irritation, inflammation and redness.

As delicious as avocado is sliced over your salad or eaten from the skin with a drizzle of lemon juice and sprinkling of salt, it is also a natural skin care superstar that grants a smooth and glowing complexion.
