What is it for?
Avocado oil, and other oils such as argan, jojoba and coconut, are recognized for their positive effect on skin diseases, as well as for their anti-inflammatory or antioxidant effects. They can also aid in skin barrier repair and wound healing. (1)
Research carried out on supplements such as biotin reveals that its continuous use leads to a significant increase in elasticity and hydration, and a decrease in the depth of expression lines. (2)
Almond oil, for its part, has numerous health benefits particularly for skin. This oil helps reduce scars as well as soften and rejuvenate the skin. It has also been used to improve skin tone and elasticity, as well as for post-operative treatments. (3)
Resveratrol has unique anti-aging properties and includes cardiovascular benefits, among others. It is widely used in skin care products. (4)
Studies on vitamin C demonstrate its effectiveness in stimulating collagen synthesis and providing antioxidant protection against deterioration caused by UV rays. (5)
Let's be healthier and stunning together.
