Avocados aren’t just a tasty fruit that is packed with vitamins and minerals. These health-boosting fruits actually are one of the few fruits that contain fat.
So when you’re not enjoying their delicious taste as a snack or in another dessert or salad recipe they can be used as a beauty treatment with wonderful effects. When one becomes too ripe to eat, it is the perfect time to create a beauty treatment, in a variety of ways.
Have you ever felt like you’ve been blown away? Your hair to be specific! Do you have fly-away, frizzy, dry or out of control hair? If so, here is what you need to do.
- Mash up a ripe avocado and massage it into your hair. Leave it in for approximately 15-20 minutes before rinsing it out with cool water. Wait an hour and wash your hair with a mild shampoo and be amazed at how manageable and silky your hair looks and feels.
To soften, invigorate, soothe and nourish dry skin try these recipes for startling results:
- Mix together ½ of a mashed avocado and ½ of a mashed banana together to form a paste or cream. Apply to the face and neck for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat skin dry with a soft towel.
- Mix together 2 tablespoons of mashed avocado, 2 tablespoons of honey and 1 egg yolk together. Spread the mixture all over your face and let it remain on for 30 minutes. Rinse the mask off with lukewarm water and pat dry with a soft cloth.
- Mix 2 tablespoons of mashed avocado with 1 tablespoon of finely crushed almonds and ½ a teaspoon of honey until the texture is creamy. Apply gently to face or hands and let it remain on for 30 minutes. Gently rub fingers over covered areas right before rinsing with warm water and pat face dry. Your skin will feel smooth and exfoliated naturally.
Enjoy those beauty secrets and treatments for great hair and skin!
