The peel of the avocado contains a lot of oil so before you throw it in the bin use it as a moisturizer. Simply clean your face and gently rub the inside of the peel all over it. Leave on for at least 15 minutes or as long as you have time for. Rinse first with warm water then splash face with cold water. You won't believe the softness this beauty tip using avocados provides.
