As we've all probably seen all over the web, you can now add avocado pit to your smoothies. I mean, this was probably always true, but for some reason, these things come in waves. I love how there are trends in health and wellness just the same as there are in fashion. I could argue I'm not very trendy, but I mean clothes. In terms of wellness, I am, extraordinarily trendy. I like that about myself, but I have to admit I've gotten pretty caught up in wellness trends. So, now as a precaution I tend to research stuff to see if the new hot thing is, well, actually a thing, or just internet stuff. This is actually a thing, although there is a little bit of controversy over whether we should be consuming avocado pits, or not. Some are for it, some against it.
Considering what I've read, I'll probably put my left over pulp in a smoothie sometime soon and see how I feel. But for right now, I'm making a face scrub with it. Another little addition to my beauty care routine is this Actually Organic Argan Oil, which they were so kind to send over. I'm a pretty big fan of Argan Oil and I've talked about the different kinds of oils and how my skin reacts differently to them, and with this one I actually noticed a huge difference right away. The oil is a lot smoother, it's difficult to explain, but sometimes the oils I buy don't glide on very smoothly, which is frustrating to walk around with oil just sitting on the surface of your face, but this one worked really well for me.
Here's what you'll need:
- 2 Over-ripe bananas
- 10 drops of Argan Oil
- 1-2 Avocado pits
- For the avocado pits, you're going to have to dehydrate them first. You can do this by letting them sit on the counter for several days or put them in the oven for 2 hours at 250°
- Cut the seed or seeds in half, and blend into a powder
- Blend in Argan Oil and bananas and apply to face and body as a scrub or a mask.
