Absorbed by the skin more than any other oil, avocado oil can delay the signs of aging and makes skin softer and smoother. It has high fatty acid content, containing omegas 3, 6 and 9, and also Vitamin A & D, but then avocado is the most fattening of fruit!! It has a soothing effect on sensitive and damaged skin. It is also a natural sunscreen so makes a good addition to moisturiser (if you get into making your own!!), as it is slightly protective against the ultraviolet rays of the sun. Also is great for the hair to regenerate after sun and sea and sand!!!
