My Beloved Avocado…

How I love thee! Not only do avocados taste delicious, they make you feel full (help with weight loss) have anti-inflammatory nutrients (help to prevent arthritis) contain a ton of fiber, packed with carotenoids, and Vitamin C! They are also known to do wonders for your skin.

Many people use avocados for facials.. By mashing it up and using alone, adding organic honey or plain organic yogurt. For those with sensitive skin against harsh chemicals, this would be the perfect and most natural mask to use! Add a slice of cucumber to each eye and relax! (Cucumbers are known to reduce puffiness under your eyes.)

If you are scared you will eat your mask before it gets to your face, here is an awesome and easy vegetarian meal you can use avocados with!
