I will have to admit I am a little bit vain….
When I was a personal trainer I was obsessed with super foods to obtain a beautiful body. I spent a LOT of money on supplements, books, nutrition courses and “special” doctors.
I think I have done pretty much every trendy diet plan.
When I started to become interested in the skincare industry I did the Perricone diet. A diet rich in salmon and berries (plus other highly nutritious foods) designed by Dr Perricone for aging skin and weight management. He also has a diet plan for acne management. I ate huge amounts of salmon and berries amongst other foods to promote healthy skin.
So…. After the last 10-15 years of my experience if I had to pick 1 super food that boosts my skin health it would be the avocado!!
I must say I was not a fan of the avocado until a few years ago but now I love it in salads and on sandwiches. Especially on toast with Vegemite. I can honestly say within a few hours of eating avocado I notice my skin is a lot more radiant and softer looking.
AVOCADO – THE FACTS
Avocado is a fruit rich in monounsaturated fats (about 75% of the fruit). These are “good fats” that lower bad cholesterol! These fats contain omega 3, oleic linoleic and linolenic acids! Huge skin benefits especially if your skin is dry!
Avocados are high in fibre, potassium, b vitamins, vitamin e and c and vitamin k. Also antioxidants such as lutein and polyphenols – no wonder they are great for your beauty regime!
They help to prevent cancer, diabetes and also high blood pressure.
We offer avocado oil in our custom lip balms. Why would you choose it as an ingredient?
It contains vitamins A, B1, B2, D, E and beta carotene. It is known to have regenerative and rejuvenating properties. It also has excellent penetrating abilities and natural sunscreening properties and last but not least is an excellent antioxidant.
Pass me the guacamole please!!
