Avocado Oil


What Are the Benefits of Avocado Oil?

Avocados, also called avocado pears, are a fruit with a soft, creamy flesh. They are praised for their nutritional benefits, since they contain high levels of unsaturated fats, and they are also useful for maintaining the beauty of your skin. Regular use of avocado facials can help treat a number of skin disorders and help reveal smooth, glowing skin

Psoriasis

Psoriasis responds well to avocado oil and vitamin B12, according to a study published in the 2001 issue of the journal "Dermatology." Psoriasis patients used the vitamin and avocado oil cream for 12 weeks and showed consistent improvement throughout the study period. By contrast, a group that used a vitamin E cream showed benefits for the first four weeks, after which the effects subsided. The researchers concluded that avocado oil with vitamin B12 may be a useful long term topical treatment for psoriasis.

Vitamins to Fight Aging

Avocados contain vitamins, specifically vitamins A and C, that can help slow the signs of aging.

Oils to Moisturize

Avocado is rich in fatty acids, which can be used to moisturize the skin. Avocado or avocado oils are found in a number of commercially available skincare products. Avocado contains humectants, which are chemicals that attract and hold water. Treatment of avocado on your skin will attract and add moisture to your skin and the avocado oil will form a barrier to help seal in moisture and protect your skin from the elements.

Skin Benefits

According to Avocado.com, avocados reduce the appearance of age spots, help reduce signs of skin aging and heals dry skin and eczema. Large amounts of sterolins, a protein proven to reduce the appearance of age spots, scars and sun damage, are found in avocados. Avocado oil contains the highest amount of sterolins in the fruit, states Avocado.com, making it an ideal ingredient in skin moisturizers marketed to people with dry or damaged skin. Avocado oil also increases the amount of collagen found in the skin. Avocado.com reports that a loss of collagen in the skin occurs in the natural aging process and avocado oil helps to slow that process down. Avocados do not clog pores.
