Avocado, a superhero for the skin?

The skin, our protective barrier against external aggressions, deserves all our attention, and the avocado could well be its best ally. “Rich in vitamins E and C, fatty acids and antioxidants, avocado is an ingredient of choice for deeply nourishing and restoring the skin's natural radiance,” explains certified dermatologist Alex Tremblay. “Its hydrating properties combat dryness and can even soothe inflammation with its natural anti-inflammatory compounds.”

How to take full advantage of the benefits of avocado?

Using avocado as a mask is childishly simple. First make sure your avocado is ripe and clean. Mash it into a puree and, for an extra soothing effect, add a tablespoon of honey.

Before spreading this mixture on your face, perform a skin test to avoid allergic reactions. Let the mask sit for about 20 minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water and applying your usual moisturizer to seal in the benefits.

Even natural, the avocado mask can present allergy risks for some. It is always advisable to carry out a skin test before application. Plus, freshness is key – an overripe avocado may be less effective and more difficult to use.
