We know it sounds a little ridiculous however fat is essential for producing hormones, absorbing fat soluble vitamins (A, E, D, K), hydrating your skin from the inside out and effectively balancing blood sugar. When our blood sugar levels are under control, through the addition of healthy fats to your diet, this can help prevent hormonal breakouts. For amazing skin, ditch the chemical filled skincare routines and improve your skin naturally, by consuming foods rich in healthy fats or using them topically.
Avocados are an excellent source of monounsaturated fats that can hydrate and shield your skin. Avocados are the perfect snack or you can use avocado oil as a natural moisturiser.
