1. Eye serum for brighter under eye area

Avocado is a wonderful pick-me-up for tired eyes. It contains nourishing healthy fats and high concentrations of vitamins A and E, which are perfect for re-vitalising the thin and sensitive skin around your eyes. Gently massage a little avocado flesh into the skin around your eyes and leave it on for a while, and the nutrients will quickly be absorbed by the skin, then wash off and enjoy soft and hydrated skin.

2. Body scrub for divinely soft skin

You can make a super-nourishing body scrub using avocado and a few other ingredients. Mix the pulp of half an avocado with a tablespoon of avocado oil (or simply use olive oil), a tablespoon of sugar and a teaspoon of honey.

Rub the mixture gently into your skin and it will remove the dead skin cells and moisturise and nourish the skin at the same time.

Probably one of the best known uses of avocado is in hair masks. Avocado is great for treating dry, damaged hair and it will bring the bounce and shine to your hair in no time at all.

All you need to do is to mash up one avocado and add a teaspoon of olive oil or coconut oil to the mixture. Massage it into your hair and leave it to sit for half an hour before you wash it out again.

If you have dandruff, try adding some lemon juice to the mixture and that will help fight the dandruff too.
