My Mom bought a ton of Avocados the other day with the hopes that I would make my famous guacamole. Four days have passed and I keep walking past them, still in their skins. I can’t help but think about our amazing moisturizer, WAKE UP CALL, every time I see an avocado, which got me thinking about other uses for the fruit. Yes, avocados are fruits.

With a little googling I discovered a wealth of uses and benefits of avocados. They’re not just for Mexican food anymore.

Health Benefits:

  • Avocados lower cholesterol because they contain high levels of beta-sitosterol.
  • They also contain high levels of folate which aids in stroke prevention and heart attacks.
  • High levels of vitamin E, monounsaturated fats, and glutathione will keep your heart healthy.
  • Avocados also have carotenoid lutein, which help to prevent macular degeneration and cataracts.
  • Similar to Olive Oil, avocados have Oleic Acid, which can be beneficial in warding off cancer, specifically breast and oral cancers.

Skin & Hair Benefits:

  • Highest level of sterolins, which is wonderful for dry or dehydrated skin
  • Avocado oil increases collagen in the skin
  • Avocado can help repair damaged hair and mimics our own oil secretions.

Don’t be shy-eat them or mash them up for your skin and hair. The avocado is a wonder fruit!
