As a facial oil moisturizer

Fill 2/3 of a 1-ounce bottle with avocado oil. Pick another nourishing oil and use it to fill up the last third of the bottle. Add three to four droplets of your favorite essential oil like lavender or rose. Twist on the cap and shake well.

Pour a little of your homemade oil on the palm of your hand, dab your fingers into the oil, and apply it to your face. You can also use the oil as a hand moisturizer. The oil can last up to a year if you keep the bottle out of the sunlight.

As a homemade facemask

As a natural anti-aging skin cream

Mix 1/4 cup avocado oil with 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 2 tablespoons beeswax, 1/2 teaspoon vitamin E oil, and 1 tablespoon Shea butter in a glass jar. Bring it to a simmer. Stir the ingredients as they melt in the jar. Once melted, pour the cream into a smaller jar and let it sit until the mixture hardens.

Unlike most fruits, it's rich in healthy fats and is often used to produce oil.

Studies on the side effects of avocado oil are scarce. As with any product, it’s a good idea to do a patch test on your skin first to rule out any allergies.

To do this, rub a dime-sized amount of the oil into the inside of your forearm. If you don’t experience any irritation or inflammation within 24 hours, the oil should be safe for you to use.

If you’re allergic to avocados, check with your doctor before using avocado oil.
