Avocado oil is a great addition to your kitchen as it is a healthy fat full of vitamins and minerals, but did you know this versatile oil is also great for your skin? Today we share eight ways to use avocado oil in your skincare routine.

Makeup remover

A couple of drops of avocado oil on a cotton round will melt away stubborn makeup while cleansing your skin. After cleansing, wipe away excess oil with a warm washcloth.

Face mask

Did you know you can make a great face mask with ingredients you probably already have laying around the house? Mash half an avocado and add half a teaspoon of avocado oil. Leave on the face for 20 minutes and then rinse off with warm water. For an exfoliating effect, add in a tablespoon of ground oats.

Sugar scrub

Combine one cup of sugar and one cup of avocado oil in a jar with a few drops of your favorite essential oil for a delicious body scrub. Store it in the shower for easy exfoliating.

Bath oil

Adding a few tablespoons of avocado oil to your bath will help keep skin smooth and hydrated.

Lip scrub

Like a body scrub, adding avocado oil will make your concoction extra moisturizing. Combine two tablespoons of superfine sugar, 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon honey, and two teaspoons avocado oil and store in a small, clean jar.

Sun exposure treatment

Rich in vitamins E and D, avocado oil is great for treating sun exposure. Mix a tablespoon in with cooling aloe vera gel and apply to sunburns.

Cuticle softener

Rub a drop of avocado oil into cuticles for softer and malleable cuticles.

Softening oil

Do you have extra dry or rough elbows, heels, and knees? Massaging a small amount of avocado oil into these dry areas will help to hydrate and soften.

Feeling inspired? If you want to incorporate avocado oil into your beauty routine, opt for cold-pressed, unrefined, extra-virgin avocado oil.
