One of the hidden treasures of nature is Avocado oil. It is derived from the avocado fruit and not its seed unlike many plant oils. This fruit earlier found in the regions of Mexico and Central America is now found in different parts of the world and has a vast amount of nutrients and vitamins like Omega-3 fatty acids, potassium, Lecithin, Sterolin and vitamins A, D and E etc.
Skin conditions like Acne, eczema, psoriasis, sunburns, keratosis pilaris can be helped with this oil when it’s applied topically to ease the discomfort. It has a high concentration of anti-inflammatory oleic acid which reduces inflammation and itching. Being natural, always a drop or two of the oil has to be tested in a small patch of skin to see if you are not allergic before applying it to the whole body.
When you buy Avocado oil for your skin make sure you buy the unrefined and organic one. As only the natural oil rather than the chemically extracted one has a host of skin benefits.
