Avocado - Good for you Inside AND Outside!

Avocados are Mother Nature's skin moisturizer. With their healthy fats and phytonutrients, they offer remarkable benefits to human skin -- both when eaten and when used topically.
For an excellent skin complexion, rub one or more of the following items against the skin two to four times a week: papaya pulp, avocado, or cucumber. For dry skin, rub hempseed oil, jojoba oil and MSM lotion directly into the skin. This will alleviate dryness quickly. Or use avocado on the skin directly. Avocado oil is similar to our skin's oil.
Treat yourself to an avocado facial. Beauty, they say, is only skin deep. Luckily, avocado has moisturizing power to help make your skin more beautiful. For years, people have used avocado as a natural facial treatment, especially for dry skin. It's easy to do in your own home. Just remove your makeup and wash your face with warm water and soap or your favorite cleanser. Mash some avocado and mix it with a little milk or oatmeal and apply it to your face. Leave it there for 10 minutes, then rinse it off with lots of water.

Mix avocado, olive oil and lemon juice together in a bowl. Once evenly mixed, cover entire body, including hair and let sit for 15 minutes. As you rinse off the mask in the sower, use the sea salt as an allover light exfoliator.
