20 years ago, an avocado was entered in the Guinness Book of Records as the most nutritious fruit in the world and there are a lot of uses for it. An avocado is not only edible, but it has so many uses and you can even drink it.
Bright Side gathered 16 of the most interesting ways to use this green fruit.
1. Shaving cream
Store bought shaving cream contains so many chemicals. But you can make it yourself! An avocado contains vitamins A and E which nourish the skin and soften it.
Recipe: Take 1 really ripe avocado, peel it, and divide it in half, removing the seed. Blend the pulp. It should have a creamy consistency. Before shaving, apply this cream to your skin, just like ordinary shaving cream. When you’re finished, store the remainder in the refrigerator.
2. Lip cream
Lip skin is very thin which is why wrinkles form around it very easily. Avocado contains oleic acid, which makes the lips soft and full.
Recipe: Mix the pulp of 1/2 ripe avocado and 1 tsp of olive oil. Apply the mixture to the area around the lips and leave for 25 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Repeat this procedure 2 times a week.
