The avocado: A source of inner and outer beauty

Did you know that the avocado delivers benefits beyond those on our plate? It’s true! In addition to being a superfood, the avocado plays a beneficial role as a natural ingredient in homemade beauty treatments.

Rich in fatty acids, vitamin E and vitamin D, avocados are particularly good for our skin, nails and hair, as they restore the internal balance by boosting collagen production. In addition, the potassium, magnesium and calcium found in avocados help promote cell regeneration.

Here are a few highly effective DIY beauty treatments:

1 – For the face

While the anti-inflammatory properties of the avocado relieve the discomfort caused by acne and eczema, the honey’s antibacterial properties help unclog your pores, leaving you with a radiant complexion!
