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.
