If you haven’t worn an avocado-green mask lately, you’re missing out on a trend. They seem to be creeping up everywhere, from President Obama’s tweets to the hottest beauty brands. There’s a good reason why avocado oil should have a place in your beauty regimen. “Avocados are high in oleic acid, a fatty acid that aids in maintaining moisture in the skin,” said Carrie Lindsey, Shen Beauty‘s Eyebrow Specialist and Esthetician, “They also help regenerate damaged cells and reduce facial redness and irritation.” Our favorite snack has even more benefits – they’re high in Vitamin K, great for micro blood circulation, and Vitamins C & E, which condition and moisturize the skin.
Here are our favorite products for that superfood superglow.
