Avocados = hydrated and protected skinThe scoop: Avocados, which are ranked by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's most nutritious fruit, are not only rich in vitamins A, C, E and K but also boast "healthy" fats that make them both heart healthy and wonderful for hair and skin. (Research has even shown that avocados can help with serious skin issues like eczema.) Many experts also extol the virtues of avocado oil, which has natural sunscreen properties and has been proven to protect against UVA and UVB rays much more effectively than other plant based oils.
Tip: Avocados work their beauty magic when applied topically as well as when ingested. Try this easy, at-home hair mask that will help hydrate and add shine and body. First, mix a mashed avocado with an egg yolk and a tablespoon of olive oil. Apply to hair, cover with a plastic cap for 20-30 minutes then rinse and shampoo.
