For the Love of Avocados

Is avocado making a name for itself or what? Listed as one of the top skin care trends for 2017, could it be the new coconut oil? Probably not, as each has their own separate benefits but there are major brownie points to eating avocado and applying the oil topically. The craze of the benefits of avocado oil are all over the internet, an obscene amount of hashtags mentioned on Twitter and Instagram, and let’s not forget the DIYer’s adding it to their at-home face masks.

Here’s the 4-1-1, the secret of this little fruit’s success is in the oil, about 77% of an avocado’s overall caloric composition (the more ideal the nutritional composition of a food, the more valuable it is as a source of calories), and avocado my friends is very valuable. Avocado is a nutrient-dense food, which means all the good stuff is packed together.

There are a many benefits to applying avocado oil, here are a few:

  1. Strengthens the Skin– Let’s just say it’s a super-food for your skin. By moisturizing it into the skin it boost’s the ability to generate more cells, stronger cells that is. There are 3 primary skin-feeding nutrients which are vitamin E, potassium, and lecithin. They are all easily absorbed where they provide energy for the growth and health of new skin as well as strengthening existing cells.
  2. Detoxification– Did you know avocado oil is LOADED with chlorophyll, you know, a natural source of magnesium? Which, in fact, is one of the best-known natural substances for removing heavy metals like mercury and lead from the liver, kidneys, brain, and other organs in the body.
  3. Highest in Vitamin E: This fat-soluble and powerful antioxidant vitamin is known for improving skin and eye health, providing defense against oxidative damage to cells caused by free-radicals.
  4. Oleic Acid– Oleic acid is known to have positive effects throughout the body. It can lower the risk of some cancers, prevent flare-ups of certain auto-immune diseases, speed cell regeneration, aid the body in eliminating microbial infections, and help reduce inflammation inside and out.

Keeping the benefits in mind there are two Susan Ciminelli products that contain avocado oil. Our Cleansing Milk is a super light-weight aroma therapeutic milky cleanser used for removing makeup and daily impurities. Our Body Buff, a full body scrub, leaves the skin feeling silky smooth and soft. The Dead Sea salts gently exfoliate while the essential oils replenish moisture into the skin and repair damage caused by stress and harsh environments. While these products contain Avocado oil, it works to bring rich anti-aging nutrients into the skin while soothing, unclogging pores, and promoting a radiant skin tone.
