How do we love thee, avocado? Let us count the ways… From guacamole to California Rolls, the super fruit sure knows how to please a palette. Turns out, avocado is amazing for your skin too. It’s packed with good-for-you fats, which makes one of mother nature’s best moisturizers. And it doesn’t stop there. Avocados also contain large amounts of a specific protein called sterolins that has been shown to help repair age spots, scars and sun damage, says Rebecca Scritchfield, RD, a Washington, DC nutritionist and fitness specialist. For us, we just love how dewy and fresh our face feels after applying an avocado mask. Give this simple recipe a go and let us know what you think.

Love Heals launched its custom Design Studio so would-be designers like me (seriously, it’s crazy how much I spend on beads and chains), can design the perfect piece of jewelry without actually having to make it.
You can choose from a selection of charms, pendants and strands to create anything from a simple cord necklace (like this pretty number I made, at right) to a pair of lavish pearl chandelier earrings. After you submit and purchase your design, your jewelry is handcrafted by their California-based artisan team and sent to you in two weeks. The Design Studio is easy to navigate and use and it’s not too expensive: A custom piece of jewelry can cost you less than $100—my necklace clocks in at $90.
Another good reason to shop: Love Heals is committed to doing good. They use ethically-sourced materials for their jewelry and have planted more than 432,000 trees with GreenerEthiopia.org. And if that wasn’t great enough, here’s another huge shopping bonus: If you design a custom piece, you can buy it for 40 percent off with the promo code DESIGN40! Enter the code, which is good until June 30, at checkout.
