AVOCADOS & BEAUTY

The oils and vitamins in Chilean Hass Avocados work for your outside as well as your inside. Exclusive, and expensive, spas use avocados for facials and hair treatments and so can you.

Here is how:

Avocado Facial: Halve, pit and peel a Chilean Hass Avocado and mash in a bowl or in a sealable plastic bag with 2 to 3 tablespoons honey. Wash your face, spread on the avocado mixture, lick your fingers and relax for 15 minutes.

Rinse off.

Avocado Hair Treatment: Halve, pit and peel a Chilean Hass Avocado and mash in a bowl (or in a sealable plastic bag) with one half cup olive oil, almond or avocado oil. Work into hair with fingers or a brush, getting avocado mixture all the way to the ends. Let stand 30 minutes, then shampoo and condition.

You will find that the aroma of the avocado is going to make you hungry, so enjoy an avocado-based salad (see recipe section), or avocado spread on toast, or an avocado smoothie while you wait for the treatment to finish.
