Whenever we think about a "girls' night," there is a certain image that comes to mind. We tend to have visions of women clutching glasses of pinot grigio on the couch, toes prepping for pedicures, all while allowing a gooey green mask to harden on their face. Many ladies have a love of self-pampering, but too few know that there are things in their kitchen that they can use (and eat!) to get that natural, glamorous glow.
One of the most versatile ways to get a better look is none other than the avocado. This green superfood is meant for more than a few good bowls of guacamole. Avocados are packed with nutrients, with nearly 20 vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, and include a high percentage of the daily value for many of them. Aside from giving us a ton of healthy, fortifying goods to keep us on the right dietary track, avocados can be eaten and used as a part of your daily routine to revitalize your look.
