What do you do to your avocado? Toss it to your salads? Make sandwiches, dip or smoothies? You might also be using avocados on your skin as face masks or for moisturizing (I have mentioned a brilliant way to use it in your natural skin care routine here). You might definitely be using avocados because we know it has tons of benefits for skin, hair and with all the healthy fats it is a healthier option to spreads and dips. The fun part is it tastes so good.
Today’s post is not about various methods of using avocados,you can continue with however you have been using, no problem. My today’s post is about using the seed that always goes un-noticed and abandoned. After I let you know one great method of using the avocado seed, you will surely wonder why haven’t you thought of it before and you will love me more for the very reason.
I am so excited to share this and I am sure after you know what to do, you will never throw away the under-rated avocado seed. So lets get to it straight.
Yaay!! You just need one avocado for this. Actually one avocado seed.
Avocado for massage
We all love our salon visits. Why because we want our skin to be pampered. You know we have so many options to do it at home (I have mentioned various skin care DIY’s in my blog like this, this and this) But the best part about a salon facial is the massage and we don’t really know how to do a proper facial massage. Now there are many tools available in the market to give a great massage to your face. We also know one great method is using ice-cubes like in this post. But I have come up with a better massaging tool and by now you have already understood what I am talking about. If not, let me break the surprise, Avocado seed is a great massaging tool. Yes I mean it. Now you might be like what nonsense, this will never work etc. etc. but try it to believe it.
Method of massaging
For an effective facial massage your avocado seed must be refrigerated. For a luxurious feel apply some avocado pulp on your face and then using the seed massage your face, starting from your jaw line, massaging upwards to the corners of your lips to the nostrils and to your cheek bone then back. Follow this with the a chin massage (in circular motion) and finally your forehead, starting near the temples to the middle of your fore head and back again. Next massage around your eyes. Repeat the process for both halves of your face. Once your done massaging your face, massage your neck too.
Trust me this is such a blissful experience where your face feels relaxed. The massage also has so many benefits to your skin.
Benefits of massage
- The first and foremost benefit of this or any massage in general is that, a facial massage increases blood and oxygen flow to the face revealing a beautiful glow to the skin.
- Massaging on a regular basis gives a youthful skin reducing wrinkles and fine lines.
- The avocado seed massage hydrates your skin and gives a radiant glow to it.
If you are not convinced by now and you doubt about trying the avocado seed massage, then all I can tell you is try it to know. You are not going to lose anything anyways. Avocados are great for your skin, you know. And you were however going to throw away that seed, so why not give this revolutionary idea a try. You will love the experience and how you skin feels. This sounds crazy but it works.
