Avocado Oil

by Sinéad Gormley

It’s no secret that I love using natural oils on my face and body, and today I’m excited to be writing about my newest love that I’ve been adoring lately, avocado oil!

I knew that as soon as I got my hands on this stuff I would love it. I’ve read so many raving reviews about this oil, specifically praising it’s regenerative and moisturising properties. I’m happy to report that it really doesn’t disappoint.

I’ve had great results using fresh avocado as a face mask, so I was really excited to start using the

Avocados are packed full of healthy monounsaturated fats and skin loving vitamins (such as Vitamin E!), which intensely moisturise the skin and also contain anti-inflammatories to help combat acne. Because of these properties, avocado oil will be suitable for any skin type, whether you are dry, combination or oily.

As you can see from the above picture, avocado oil has a green/yellow tint, which disappears once you massage it into the skin. I’ve been applying a couple of drops to my face and neck each morning and evening after cleansing. It’s just as moisturising as sweet almond oil, yet absorbs even faster than jojoba oil.

Avocado oil is widely used in the skincare industry in many products, so why not use the oil on it’s own in it’s original form? (without all the added chemicals/preservatives that many skincare items contain!) You’ll get even better results, and have the satisfaction of knowing that what you’re putting onto your face is completely natural.

I couldn’t find avocado oil in my local health food stores, so I ordered it online from a website called Health Hunter.  However, it did take over three weeks to receive my order, so bare that in mind when you are ordering from this website. If you’re not in a rush to get the products, I would fully recommend them!

The prevalence of skin disease exceeds that of obesity, hypertension, or cancer. Despite skin being the largest organ of the human body, dermatological research remains one of the most under funded areas of medicine. In a world where society has an increasing preoccupation with image and it’s importance to every aspect of a person’s life, sufferers of skin diseases are feeling and being more marginalised and isolated than ever.
