Avocado for skin care

Avocado seeds have bactericidal and fungicidal properties. It means that they are able to neutralise different harmful microorganisms. Additionally, seeds contain saponins that boost our metabolism and help our body get rid of “bad” cholesterol. Besides, these products contain calcium, magnesium, and vitamin C.

It’s highly recommended to use avocado seeds as a cosmetic product or a food supplement.

Thanks to their antibacterial effect, avocado seeds deal great with acne, oily hair, and dandruff. They also have a good influence on our skin colour and hair health.


A scrub. Mix shredded avocado seeds with ground coffee and sea salt, then gently massage into your skin. 

A cream for drying. Warm the water and grated seed together until they form a paste. Add a few drops of tea tree oil for a stronger effect. Apply the therapy only to your pimples and wait 4-6 minutes. 

It’s a face mask. Mix a grated pit with powdered clay and a little water, then apply to your face, avoiding the eye area. Wash your face and apply a moisturiser after 15 minutes. 

Rinse your hair. In a pan, combine 30 fl oz water and shredded avocado seeds. Boil the water for 30 minutes at a low temperature. Filter the solution and rinse your hair with water after you’ve washed it.

Prevents skin damage

 Research from 2011 shows that avocados contain compounds that may help protect your skin from sun damage and inflammation. Ultraviolet (UV) damage to your skin can cause wrinkles, as well as other signs of ageing, and skin cancer. 

Additionally, studies have shown that both vitamin C and vitamin E, which are found in avocados, play an important role in helping to protect your skin from oxidative damage caused by the sun and other environmental factors.

Skin elasticity is improved. 

The association between skin condition and fat and antioxidant micronutrient intake was investigated in a 2010 study of approximately 700 women. 

The researchers determined that a high fat diet — particularly monounsaturated fats like those found in avocados — improved skin suppleness and reduced wrinkle appearance.

Improves skin health in general 

Try avocado oil on your skin if you want to achieve better skin care. 

Antioxidants, plant sterols, omega-9, minerals, and vitamins, especially vitamins C and E, abound in cold-pressed avocado oil. These nutrients can work together to increase collagen formation, reduce inflammation, and remove dead skin cells.

Prevents dry skin

Avocados are a great source of biotin, which is part of the B complex vitamins. Biotin is known to help prevent dry skin when applied topically. It can also help prevent brittle hair and nails.
