Remember that time, circa 2016 where if anything could be avocado-related, it would be avocado-related? The superfood took over our Instagram feeds and our diets, and the millennial-favourite ingredient was all the rage. While we may have calmed down with our dietary obsession with it, the trendy fruit is now popular for another reason — it helps heal dry skin.
Since avocados are high in healthy fats and are excellent sources of vitamin E and C, they play a powerful role in maintaining skin health and vitality. Even more so, avocados are saviours for dry skin. Need proof? Read on as we list all the ways avocado helps heal dry, patchy skin.
01. It contains biotin
Biotin is a member of the B-complex vitamin family and contains multifold moisturising properties. When used topically, it can help fortify dry skin since it can produce fatty acids that help nourish the skin. It also stimulates the oil glands to function properly, so you can rest assured that if you incorporate avocados into your skincare routine, they will not only take care of your dry skin but help prevent dryness in the future too.
02. It improves skin elasticity
It's common knowledge that dry skin enhances the appearance of wrinkles way more than any other skin type due to the lack of elasticity caused by insufficient sebum production. Using products with avocados in them can help with this because they have certain fats that improve the skin's elasticity when used topically. It thereby reduces the appearance of wrinkles and makes the skin look more youthful.
03. It soothes dry skin
Those with dry skin often suffer from skin conditions such as eczema and flaky skin that refuses to go away. Avocados contain antioxidants and vitamins that speed up skin repair and help heal dry, flakey and inflamed skin when used topically. Bonus? Avocados soothe the skin, too, so you can kiss redness goodbye too!
04. It moisturises the skin thoroughly
Those with dry skin are always on the lookout for immensely moisturising products, and avocado oil is second to none when it comes to instant skin nourishment. Apart from vitamin E, which is an incredibly nourishing ingredient, avocados contain potassium, lecithin, and more, which nourish and moisturise the skin.
