Your Skin

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 Eyes

Eating avocados has the ability to help prevent eye disease because the food is loaded with carotenoids. But to keep those eyes looking pretty and less puffy, simply slice an avocado and rest the slices under your eyes for 15 minutes to hydrate the skin under your peepers. 

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. 

Your Nails

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.
