Here are 7 of the avocado's many benefits for your hair and skin.
1. Firmer Skin
A whole avocado contains in average 10 grams of fibers important to maintain skin's firmness and preventing it from sagging or aging.
2. Control Acne and Skin Breakouts
Avocados are rich in vitamin C, E, K, magnesium folic acid, and potassium essential to effectively control acne and regulate skin breakouts. 60% of the fat in avocados is monosaturated and contains no cholesterol. Unsaturated fats are heart-healthy and scientists believe that healthy fats help maintain the water level in your body. This translates into strong hydration, less itchy skin and scalp and a healthy-looking hair and glowing skin.
3. Reduce Wrinkles and Even Skin Tone
Avocados are rich in anti-agents reducing the appearance of wrinkles and leaving the skin soft and supple. They also protect the skin/hair from the harmful UV rays of the sun, reducing age spots and giving a more even skin-tone.
