The Skincare Benefits of Avocado Oil

Avocado oil is an edible oil pressed from the fruit of an avocado (persea americana). And for those unsure of what an avocado is - it's that green fruit that likely dominates your IG feed. People really, really like it.

Avocado oil is a nutrient-packed, clinically-proven skin moisturiser and conditioner. It is packed with vitamins A, B1, B2, and D - plus the powerhouse antioxidants vitamin E and chlorophyll, which help mitigate skin damage and unwanted ageing. These antioxidants work together to collect and neutralise free radicals (AKA highly reactive molecules or unstable compounds that can destroy skin cells and DNA, leading to skin damage and unwanted ageing).

Avocado oil is also high in essential fatty acids like omega 3 and omega 9 with excellent regenerative, restructuring, softening and moisturising properties. If that isn't enough for you, the plant phytosterols in avocado oil protect against water loss in the skin and increase the surface lipids.

You can get tour avo fix with the Kiehl's Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask (£38 This hero mask treats thirsty complexions with its nourishing and moisturising formula. Combining avocado fruit extract, vitamin-rich avocado oil, and primrose oil, the Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask leaves skin feeling soft and replenished, while helping prevent water loss by sealing in moisture.
