Avocados are the perfect skin food. The monounsaturated fats in avocado are fabulous for improving your skin tone. They are vital for maintaining good moisture levels in the epidermal layer of your skin that make it look and feel soft and healthy. These healthy fats can also help reduce skin redness and irritation and are involved in repairing damaged skin cells. Avocados and the tomatoes provide antioxidant carotenoids and vitamin E which help guard against photo-aging from sun exposure, preventing wrinkles plus vitamin C found in these fruits and lime juice is involved in the creation of elastin and collagen for maintaining your skin’s elasticity and firmness. So without further adieu, here’s the recipe:
