Learn how to eat and use avocados for your daily beauty routines
Whether you eat them or slather them on your face, avocados can have a huge impact on your skin. Because avocados are a good source of biotin, they have the power to prevent dry skin when you eat them. And when you wear them as a mask, your skin will be naturally hydrated.
Your Hands and Feet
The skin on your hands and feet is constantly being tested. Your feet are jammed up in shoes all winter and overexposed in the summer. And your hands' only respite from the cold weather are knitted gloves. This exposure to the elements can result in pretty dry skin. Avocados can be used to create an exfoliating scrub for both hands and feet that not only hydrates but also wipes away that gruffness the weather can leave on them.
To reap the benefits of avocados for your nails, you have to use avocados the old-fashioned way. Impress your manicurist by noshing on avocados regularly. Eating foods that are full of "good" fat can help provide a hormonal balance that can positively impact our looks, especially for older women. It just so happens that avocados are rich in good fat, nutrients, and proteins that can help restore brittle nails.
