Women use avocado as a facial mask, and it’s proven to improve their skin pores and complexion. The idea that avocado will help revitalize the skin of older women is not a myth-it’s a proven fact. The reason for that is its healthy oil that is rich in vitamins and minerals- lecithin, A, D, proteins, and beta-carotene. That’s not all; it’s also rich in six types of fatty acids that are very healthy to the human skin and body.
Avocado oil once absorbed by the body will aid in the secretion of skin collagen that is responsible for the regeneration of the skin skills. As we age, the manufacturing of collagen slows down. This is why skin creases will start to show. We can’t stop skin aging, but we can definitely slow down the process with healthy food intake, and proper exercise.
For beautification, avocado oil has sterolins, a kind of steroid that is only available to plants. It’s known to soften the skin, reduce wrinkles, and heals scars generated by too much exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun. The plant oil can be used a skin moisturizer, and softener. The same oils are also effective to moisturize the hair leaving it soft and smooth because of the oil called sterolin . You can give your hair that real time treatment by applying avocado to it.
Aside from giving healthy and youthful skin, avocado is also known as one of the fruits that prevent cancer, because of its omega-3 fatty acid and Alpha linolenic acid (ALA) content. Though prevention is better the cure, this fruit can speed up the healing process for those who are undergoing cancer treatment-when eaten regularly it will stop the growth of cancer cells in the body. It’s natural and healthy fatty acids will also absorb and regulate the accumulation of bad cholesterol in the body, preventing those from spreading through your blood vessels.
All fruits offer different nutritional values that are beneficial to the human body. The only tip that I want to emphasize when eating your fruit and vegetables is to eat them as raw as possible. Avocado for an instance will no longer be that healthy, if you will eat it with your favorite cream or milk. Those so called “treats” will spoil your intention of having a healthy, effective, and beneficial diet. You can add some sweets to your avocado probably once a week, but don’t do it often. As the old saying goes, “too much of something is bad enough”.
