InternDIVA: Avocado Oil for Your Face

What seemed like the longest winter in the history of New York has finally come to an end – and I barely survived it. Every year, I dread the cold months because my skin goes through all sorts of shenanigans, such as rashes, eczema, and worst of all, extremely dry (and sometimes flaky) skin. On top of that my skin is sensitive, so finding the right moisturizer has truly been a struggle.

This past winter, I experienced an excessively dry face once again, which made me look like I had a lot more wrinkles than any 20-year old diva should have. I refused to buy anything over $30, and I was really looking for something basic, more organic and with very few ingredients to avoid any irritation or redness. At the same time of my annual hunt for the perfect moisturizer, there was one product that unexpectedly saved the day.

Thanks to the beauty gods, Naturally Susan’s Avocado Lavender Salve was sent to me as my cure. Handmade, all-natural, antioxidant/anti-aging, and made from avocados (yum!) – I was instantly sold! Available in two sizes, a mini (.30oz) and a regular (1.8oz), I purchased the mini to test the waters.

 

 

One of the great things about oils in general, whether it’s olive oil, coconut oil, etc., is that you don’t need a handful to cover an entire area. In fact with the Avocado Lavender Salve, a serving the size of the tip of my index finger is really all that was needed to cover my whole face (as seen in the photo above). Surprisingly, a .30oz jar (think of a lip gloss jar) has lasted me a month and a few days!

What I LOVE about this product is that it’s a super multi-tasker; it can be used as a day/night moisturizer, lip balm, hand cream, elbow and heel softener, whatever! Made from avocado oils and lavender essential oils (for an aromatherapeutic scent), this salve is jam-packed with vitamins A, E, and B that all aim to moisturize dry skin everywhere as well as antioxidants to assist with anti-aging. Personally, I use this on my face both day and night, especially since it leaves a natural dewy glow versus it being too oily. Such a great moisturizing base before applying foundation, too!

Naturally Susan’s is devoted to an eco-friendly promise, so the glass packaging is easily reusable. For $4.50, I definitely think I got a bang out my buck, and more! I’m determined to upgrade to the regular 1.8oz size ($31), and plan on recycling my current salve jar for my diva-on-the-go self.

So if you’re suffering from #dryskinprobz like me, go all-natural with the Avocado Lavender Salve!

Awww…an NS fan let us know how our moisturizer is soothing her doggie’s paws this snowy winter. So cute!

How do you use our Avocado Lavender Salve? Testimonials from the road…

It’s ski season! And, it was a long drive before friends and I arrived at our hotel. As we settled in and prepared for an early morning on the slopes, our friend began to apply a creme on her hands and arms. The familiar scent filled the room. What was this heavenly-scented moisturizer? It was our Avocado Lavender Salve!

What followed felt as if we were reciting the lyrics to a childhood song about all the areas on the body that the salve can be applied. You know, the song that goes “heels and toes, elbows and nose, lips and…” Okay, we don’t recall the lyrics but you get the idea :). We agreed that the Avocado Lavender Salve is great for all-over-body moisturizing. It’s vitamin-rich avocado oil includes A, E and various B vitamins, nutrients that help to alleviate dry skin and has anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant (anti-aging) benefits.

We ended the evening with a chuckle after discovering that we also applied the salve to our hair. Yes…our hair! While our friend uses it to tame pesky fly-aways, we often run the salve through our hair, using it as a leave-in hair conditioner. It strengthens and keeps our hair tangle-free. It was a great way to end the evening :).

Food on Your Body: Tips for Dry Skin

Is the harsh winter weather wreaking havoc on your skin?  Central air and heating drying you on the outside?

Here are some all-natural ways to moisturize and refresh rough, dry skin.

1) Avocado:

It’s no wonder our Avocado Lavender Salve is so popular!  Great for dehydrated skin, avocados are packed with protein, essential oils and nourishing vitamins.  Mash a ripe avocado into a paste and smooth over your face and body.  Leave on for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with tepid water.

2) Yogurt:

Grab that container of yogurt from your fridge and slather it on!  Not only is yogurt good for you on the inside, it’s great for you on the outside. Yogurt is filled with protein and vitamins and contains lactic acid to gently exfoliate.  Smooth on some plain yogurt on your face to cleanse and soften your skin.  Leave on face for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with tepid water.

3) Bananas:

Rich in vitamin A and potassium, bananas are a skin-saver!  Mash a ripe banana into a paste.  Apply all over face and leave on for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with tepid water.

So, go ahead and play with your food.  This time…you won’t get in trouble for having food on your face.  And, your body will thank you!
