Living in Colorado’s dry climate always has me alert to new ways of keeping my skin healthy and supple. I do my best to hydrate, eat healthy fats and proteins, choose skin care products that are paraben-free, and everyday I supplement with high quality Essentials + Bi-Omega to make sure my cells receive the optimal nutrients they need to support my body and its functions. Given the fact that it’s our largest organ maintaining healthy skin is an inside out job!
However, winter is long in this dry climate and can be very harsh on our skin. That’s why I’m excited to talk about avocado oil in this week’s, Just The Tip!
Avocado oil is loaded with healthy plant proteins, and along with its healthy fats can greatly benefit skin health. The oil is dual purpose, it can be consumed or applied to your skin directly! And although today’s focus is skin health this oil also benefits heart health, aids in nutrient absorption and the release of stubborn belly fat.
The antioxidants in this potent oil can help:
✅ Soften your skin and reduce the appearance of age spots
✅ Heal sun-damaged and dry skin
✅ Reduce the signs of aging by promoting collagen production when applied directly to the skin
✅ Strengthen skin and hair
✅ Treat a number of skin conditions, including eczema and psoriasis.
