Get glowing from the inside out and add it regularly to your dips, salads and omlettes. Vitamin E works significantly better when it comes from natural sources such as food.
The Avocado also contains high quantities of vitamin C, an important vitamin which can be used to reduce skin inflammation. If you suffer from breakouts, a diet high in vitamin C is a great way to clear up your skin in conjunction with using a good clay mask such as Cosmetic Clays Decongest + Clarify to draw out the impurities.
Cooking with Avocado Oil is a great healthy alternative to vegetable and canola oils. It is also thought to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin, which improves its tone and texture. Promoting an increase in collagen from the inside will compliment anti ageing skin care regimes and keep skin looking fresh and youthful.
The antioxidants break down free radicals caused by poor environmental and diet factors which lead to skin damage, wrinkles and fine lines and slow down the natural ageing process.

So for a great complexion, a serve of half an avocado a day will really make a difference to help you achieve those #skingoals.
