Eating avocados is a delicious way to improve your skin and your health. They’re a naturally nutrient-dense food. Nutrients found in avocados include vitamin E, vitamin C, lutein and several B vitamins—folate, B6, pantothenic acid, riboflavin and niacin—all of which have been shown to be good for hair and skin.
Firm avocados will ripen in a day or two at room temperature in a brown paper bag on your kitchen counter. An avocado is ready to serve when the skin turns from dark green to nearly black and yields when pressed gently with a thumb. Ripe avocados can be kept in the refrigerator for several days.
