Treat dry skin with avocado

Superfood for your skin and scalp

The natural unsaturated oils in avocado make it a wonderful natural moisturiser, but its healing superpowers make it the secret ingredient of many natural face and body products too.

Researchers point to its abilities to protect against harmful environmental factors, such as pollution, cigarette smoke, ultraviolet rays and radiation, which can cause skin aging. 

Rich in vitamins A, D and E, avocado is also a brilliant way to maintain healthy scalp and skin - especially dry, cracked and peeling skin. It can help reduce the appearance of age spots and scars, fine lines and wrinkles.

Avocado butter also melts easily, making it perfect for skin and hair care products.

TRY: Avobath bath ballistic (Lush, £3.10), which contains mashed avocado providing tons of moisture and nutrients to feed your skin while you bathe. For hair and scalp, the avocado oil in Retread hair conditioner (Lush, £9.50 for 240g) will add weight, soften your hair and restore shine.
