8 Ways to use Avocado oil in your skincare routine

Updated: Jan 25

Avocado oil is an excellent 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.

Avocado oil for skincare

A few drops of avocado oil on a cotton cloth will remove 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 lying 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 with warm water. For an exfoliating effect, add a tablespoon of ground oats.

Sugar scrub

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

Avocado oil for your bath

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

Lip scrub

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

Avocado oil is rich in vitamins E and D and is excellent 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 the cuticles for softer and malleable cuticles.

Avocado oil for softening hard skin

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.

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

Avocado oil is available in most UK supermarkets.
