Avocado for hydration


EWG Rating
 level zero for nutrient rich antioxidants

Scientific Name {Persea americana}

Avocado is also great for the skin, whether it's eaten or applied topically. The effects are more immediate if it applied topically, as its ultimate moisturizing benefits can only really be felt when it is put directly on the face. Avocados are excellent sources of vital nutrients and antioxidants. They are known for their moisturizing properties. And are one of the best ingredients used in moisturizers for those with dry skin which is in desperate need of hydration and nourishment. 

Nourishing Avocado in Anti-aging Moisturizers

The main skin benefits in avocados come from its carotenoid content. These are alpha-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, and lutein. Not only do these carotenoids attack free radicals, but they also help the skin build stronger structures, improve the brightness of skin, and even contribute to thickening thin
skin, which is a major complaint of mature women. 

Health Benefits of Avocado

  • High in beneficial nutrients

As we go throughout our lives, we come into contact with pollutants that wreak havoc our skin, by creating free radicals.
These atoms are highly charged and move through the cells rapidly. Damaging them all as it careens through the skin.
On the less end of the spectrum, they cause wrinkles, dull skin, and blemishes. Avocados contain both vitamin C and E,
which are two powerful antioxidants. Not only do they work to neutralize free radicals, they then act as a barrier,
keeping hydration locked in, while the other nutrients provided by avocados help to restore the skin. An application of avocado can
heavily contribute to improving the look of the signs of aging caused by free radical damage. As dead skin cells are sloughed away,
and new, healthy layers, fueled by the avocado emerge, the skin appears younger and more vibrant.

Last, but certainly not least, avocados are one of the best natural ways to moisturize the skin. The natural oils work to balance moisture in the skin, so that it feels hydrated and plump, without feeling heavy or cumbersome. While a mashed avocado will do the job, mixing it with other moisturizing or toning compounds can multiply its effectiveness. The oleic acid contained in avocados not only hydrates the skin, but it also promotes cell turnover, which is the process by which the skin removes dead and dying cells and replaces them with new, healthy cells. As we age, this process slows down, but avocados can help to rev it back up.
