It is no longer uncommon for the avocado fruit to be used in baking and therefore it is also possible to introduce the avocado oil into the baking as well.

Not just food

The avocado oil has a number of advantages in the kitchen, but the oil also has a number of other properties and uses. Health food stores sell the oil as skin care for dry and irritated skin and as a dietary supplement for people who do not otherwise get the beneficial fatty acids in their diet. The avocado oil can also work soothing in light sunburns and itching that can occur in connection with tanning. The oil feels cool on the skin and so relieves the itching. Remember not to use the oil in connection with sunbathing as there is a risk that you will burn yourself in the sun instead. The oil can withstand very high temperatures, as is well known.

The winter season usually means that most people experience the skin both dry and tight. Here, the avocado oil can be helpful. Avocado oil’s small oil particles get into the skin in a way that not all oils do, and many people therefore experience the oil as a good substitute for creams and lotions. It is also natural and as far as there is no allergy to avocado, the oil can also be used in children. Lubricate dry and irritated areas with a small amount of avocado oil and then allow the skin to absorb the oil properly. More serious skin conditions should always be examined by a physician and therefore only use the oil on softer ailments.

Many people believe that fat leads to more acne, but the fact is that avocado oil has proven to be effective in treating minor acne outbreaks and these are believed to be due to the calming effect of avocado oil on the skin. The avocado oil suits all skin types, but here, too, any allergies should of course be taken into account. The avocado fruit is often used as face masks by consumers who prefer natural alternatives to chemically produced products. In the same way, the avocado oil can be used when the skin feels dry, tired and glowy.
