The Ambrosial Power of Avocados; 10 Avocado Based Beauty and Hair Remedies
Avocados are a delicious fruit, rich with vitamins and minerals that optimize your overall health, and nourish your entire body. Eating avocados helps to support healthy blood pressure, which means a decreased chance for dangerous medical complications, such as kidney failure, heart attack, and stroke. These healthy snacks are more than you're average tasty treat, containing a cornucopia of omega 3 fatty acids, magnesium, manganese, zinc, folic acid, amino acids, copper, iron, potassium, and vitamins A, D, E, K, B5, B6, all of which can help enhance your natural physical beauty. Avocados creamy contents contain organic essential oils with incredible moisturizing abilities, yielding themselves to certain reparative properties that are beneficial to the health of your hair, skin, and eyes.
Avocados and Your Eyes:
Avocados contain the antioxidants lutein and zeaxthin, which are especially excellent for your eyes and vision. The delicate, sensitive skin under the eyes is naturally more susceptible to sagging, discoloration, and dryness, which can make you appear much older and tired. However, the essential oils within avocados are a great defense against tired, aged eyes.

Avocados for Your Face and Body:
Avocados can soothe irritated, itchy, blemished skin, due to excessive dryness and/or damage, caused by extreme weather conditions. They can also help heal common skin infections, like eczema and psoriasis. When applied directly to the face, avocados can even serve as an anti-aging skin remedy, decreasing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and leaving face refreshed. Here are some DIY beauty remedies for your face and body.
