No matter how much we all love the cold weather, we are all helpless against the ravages of the season and how they affect our bodies. Winters can wreak havoc on the quality of your skin and hair. The skin on face and limbs as well as the scalp is prone to dryness and flaking during the winters, seriously affecting how we look and feel. The winters can be a daunting experience if you don't take care of your body by eating right and treating your skin to nourishing food. There are certain natural treatments that can prevent skin dryness during winters and these don't require you to go to any parlours or salons as they can be easily administered at home, with easily available and safe ingredients. One of the best foods that can double up as a beauty mask is avocado. The fatty, savoury fruit, which is a favoured superfood of the health freaks, makes for a great face mask as well.
Avocado makes for a great beauty companion for your skin during winter, because of the essential oils present in it. The oils present in avocado can restore the moisture to your skin, further restoring your beauty. This is why avocados are used to nourish the skin on the face and the scalp, during winters. All you need to make avocado face masks for winter is the pulp from one ripe avocado and optionally some very common kitchen ingredients. Avocados are rich in antioxidants and healthy fats and have a ton of benefits. Avocados have anti-inflammatory properties, which gives it the power to protect against skin ageing. It is rich in Vitamin E which is a beauty vitamin and is important for keeping the skin healthy and glowing.
