We all know how yummy guacamole is, but there is much more to this green bundle of happiness.
The word avocado, native to the Americas, comes from the Mexican Spanish aguacate which in turn comes from the Aztec language of Nahuatl word ahuácatl (testicle). Avocados were known by the Aztecs as 'the fertility fruit'.
Avocado is a virtual pharmacy on a tree. All parts of the fruit, including the leaves have been used medicinally for symptoms as wide-ranging as dandruff, parasites, low libido, rheumatic pains and dysentery.
The seed of the Avokado is traditionally used externally in Central America for treating (arthritic) pain and skin infections.
Creamy rich avocado is considered the world's healthiest fruit, because of its nutrient contents such as vitamin K, dietary fiber, potassium, folic acid, vitamin B6, vitamin C, copper, and reasonable calories in it.
All of these wonderful ingredients which nurture our inside are as beneficial for our skin used externally.
If you have blemished skin, age spots or sun damaged skin, there’s good news. The sterolins found in avocado oil can reduce blemishes and also relieve damaged skin, in particular damage caused by sun exposure. Avocado oil, for skin care purposes, helps to increase collagen production naturally. In other words, it helps to form a natural barrier against wrinkles and many other signs of aging skin.
I use Avocado in NECESSARY Face Cream, MJUK Face Cleanser and AVELLANAS Eye Gel.
