While avocado oil is best known for its uses in cooking, it can also contribute to skin care. The oil is an ingredient in many types of creams, moisturizers, and sunscreens.
In this article, we explore the benefits of avocado oil for the skin and describe the best ways to apply it.
Avocado oil is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins A, D, and E. Below are some of the ways it can benefit the skin:
1. It Moisturizes And Nourishes
In addition to vitamin E, avocado oil contains potassium, lecithin, and many other nutrients that can nourish and moisturize the skin.
The outermost layer of skin, known as the epidermis, easily absorbs these nutrients, which also help to form new skin.
2. Prevents And Teats Acne
When left on for short periods of time and rinsed off with warm water, avocado oil can keep skin hydrated without leaving an oily residue. This may reduce the risk of acne.
Avocado oil also has anti-inflammatory effects, which can help to reduce the redness and inflammation associated with acne.
3. Accelerates Wound Healing
Avocado oil may help wounds to heal more quickly. Study found out that the essential fatty acids and oleic acid in avocado oil can promote collagen synthesis, which is the process of creating new connective tissue.
The essential fatty acids in avocado oil were also found to help reduce inflammation during the healing process.
However, more studies are needed to determine whether avocado oil can be used to treat wounds.
4. Reduces Signs Of Aging
The first signs of aging usually appear on the skin. Some studies have shown that consuming avocados, can help the skin to retain its elasticity.
However, researchers have yet to address whether applying avocado oil to the skin has the same effect.
5. Improves Nail Health
Avocado oil is said to heal dry, brittle nails according to scientific evidence.
However, using natural oils to keep the nails and surrounding skin soft may help to reduce breakage.
Aside applying on the skin avocado oil can also be used as facial moisturizer.
To use avocado as a facial moisturizer, a person can take the inside of an avocado peel and massage it onto their face. Leave the residue on for about 15 minutes, then rinse the face with warm water.
How To Use Avocado Oil On The Skin:
Avocado oil can also be used to moisture the face at night. Wash it off the following morning.
In The Bath
Adding a few tablespoons of avocado oil to a bath can leave the whole body feeling soft and help to prevent hot water from drying out the skin.
It can also be mixed with a person’s favorite bath oil.
As A moisturizer
Combine avocado oil with other essential oils and massage the mixture into the skin after a bath. Pat the skin dry with a towel before using the oil.
Avocado oil is also effective on its own and can be applied all over the body to keep skin soft.
For Scalp Care
A person with a dry scalp may benefit from using avocado oil in a hot oil treatment. To heat the oil, pour 3–5 tablespoons into a small glass jar, and place the jar in a saucepan of recently boiled water.
Test the temperature of the oil frequently, to prevent it from getting too hot. When the oil is warm, remove the jar from the water and gently massage the oil into the scalp.
The oil can be left overnight and shampooed out in the morning. This may help to reduce dandruff and dry, flaky skin on the scalp.
Treating Dry, Inflamed Skin
To heal and soften rough, dry skin, mix equal amounts of avocado and olive oils, and apply the mixture to the skin once or twice a day.
