Skin Benefits of Avocado Oil

Who doesn’t like avocados in a healthy salad or delicious meal? Avocados are a great source of healthy fats. And avocado oil has many skin benefits as well. Avocado oil is a natural skin healer and anti-aging agent. Avocado oil can help improve the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, and scars.

A 2010 study in the Journal of Nutrition found that using avocado oil on the skin had a noticeable effect on reducing acne scars. Another study published in 2016 in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology also found that using avocado oil on the skin reduced acne inflammation and redness. The nutrients in avocado oil moisturize the skin and keep it looking healthy and youthful.

Three ways to use avocado oil on your skin for a healthy glow

  1. Use it as a Facial Moisturizer – To soften the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, massage a few drops of avocado oil into the skin before bed. For extra nourishing treatment, add a couple of drops of your favorite essential oils to the mix. Lavender or chamomile oil is both gentle and soothing.
  2. Smooth it on Skin Chapped Heels – Cracked heels are often caused by a lack of moisture, which can be combated by regularly applying moisturizing cream. When mixed with natural oils like coconut or avocado oil, moisturizing cream is even more effective because it can penetrate the thick layer of dead skin on cracked heels.
  3. Help to Treat Acne – Acne can be frustrating to treat, especially when it seems to return over and over again. Using avocado oil can help treat and prevent acne because it has natural antibacterial properties that help kill bacteria that cause acne breakouts. The fatty acids in the avocado oil help moisturize and soothe irritated skin. Applying avocado oil to the skin regularly can help reduce the occurrence of acne breakouts and help you to get clearer skin.
