I have to rave for a moment about Avocados.
Funny thing is I HATED them growing up…but as I got older, I finally started to appreciate the fine taste of the soft, green super food that has so many vitamins and minerals in it; over 20 to be exact, including potassium (helps to control blood pressure), lutein (which is good for your eyes), and folate (beneficial for cell repair and during pregnancy).
They are also a good source of B vitamins, which help fight off disease and infection, as well as vitamins C and E, plus natural plant chemicals that may help prevent cancer. This delicious super food is also low in sugar and high in the GOOD fat, that helps lower bad cholesterol. YAY for being healthy!
Thank you Avocados..for yummy Whole Foods guacamole (my favorite), delicious salads and smoothies and for [drum roll please!] my all time favorite eye cream- Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado.
Ah, this refreshing eye cream with avocado oil soothes and hydrates under your eyes, and if you're anything like me and suffer from dark circles and puffiness, this is for you! This stuff will not seep into your eyes and leaves them feeling cool and fresh. The green pigment also helps to alleviate the reds and purples under your eyes, leaving a nice toned and balanced look and feel.
How to use: Apply by tapping the moisturizer with your fingertips delicately around your eye area without pulling the skin. Use in the mornings and at night for ultimate effect. I also refrigerate mine- it goes right next to the butter at the top of my fridge! This gives an extra cooling and refreshing sensation!
The cost is worth it. A .5 ounce container is $28.50 at Nordstrom, and lasts a long time!
We're all wearing our green today, and I certainly will be wearing mine…#kiehls
Let me know how YOU like it!
