Avocado for Face Care

Why Use Avocado for Face Care

Avocado is so much more than a trendy toast topper! This creamy fruit is a total powerhouse when it comes to healthy skin benefits and achieving an instant glow. AND, the combination of avocado and honey is known to moisturize and heal dry skin. So much in one fruit… which is why we had to add a new scrub to our lineup: St. Ives Avocado & Honey Scrub.

Is Avocado Good For Your Skin?

Avocado skin care products offer all kinds of powerful natural benefits to be celebrated. Packed with antioxidants and vitamins, this creamy fruit is known to greatly improve the look and feel of your hair and skin. Avocados have good fatty acids called poly- and monounsaturated which are healthy fats that nourish your skin’s top layer, while creating a protective barrier.

Are Antioxidants Important?

 That’s easy… Yes! Your skin loves antioxidants, like vitamin C. Your skin needs vitamin C to produce collagen, which gives the skin elasticity and firmness – unfortunately this slowly decreases as we age. The benefits of antioxidants in avocado skin care can help fight free radicals, which is amazing because free radicals are the bad guys. Other dreamy and powerful antioxidants found in our green friend, avocado, are vitamin E and carotenoid, both help to oomph your beautiful youthful skin.

Is Avocado Good For Your Face?

When you apply the powerful green wonder directly on your face it moisturizes and nourishes the skin with its rich antioxidants and vitamins. So yes, using products with avocado for face care is the real deal. They’re rich with Biotin too, which is part of the B complex vitamins and are essential for youthful healthy skin, keeping it from getting dry and scaly. For perfectly smooth and silky textured skin use an avocado scrub 3-4 times a week. Put a dime size amount on your fingertips and gently pressure in circular motions to wake up the circulation for a few rounds. Then rinse off, to reveal a soft, supple, and super happy face.

Is Avocado Healing For The Skin?

Avocados are known for their countless skin benefits including relieving inflammation from psoriasis and eczema as well as treating sunburned skin. Avocado oil penetrates the skin more than other oils, infusing it with several health and beauty properties, doing wonders for sensitive and troubled skin. Whether it’s by using a face scrub or avocado face mask, there are plenty of different ways to enjoy its benefits and give your skin a nice, nourished glow

    Should You Wash Your Face Before or After Showering?

    Have no fear – we’ve done our share of research, and the answer is clear: post-shower is definitely the way to go. Sure, washing your face in the shower saves time but it can also do more harm than good – like, clogging pores with other products (gross) or drying out skin with hot water (ouch).

  • How Often Should You Exfoliate Your Face?

    Exfoliation is the removal of dead and the oldest skin cells from the topmost layer of skin and can be accomplished via face scrubs, facials or peels. Now, how often should you exfoliate your face? Skin should be exfoliated on a consistent and regular basis as dead skin can get trapped on the surface and cause clogged pores, rough skin texture, dullness, and breakouts!
