Ingredient Spotlight: Avocado Oil

Tanning and skincare go hand-in-hand. So, if you’re looking to achieve your best glow yet, always use a self tanner infused with skin-loving ingredients. Our top recommendation? Avocado OilRich in Vitamin D and antioxidants, this wonder ingredient can protect and hydrate the skin. Read on to discover the benefits of Avocado for skin and find the best tanning Avocado Oil skincare for you.  

What is Avocado Oil?

Avocado Oil is made from the pressed pulp of the avocado. It’s rich in Vitamins A, C, K and B6, Potassium, Sodium, Magnesium, Folic Acid and Niacin. It’s also full of antioxidants and fats that greatly benefit the skin.  

The benefits of Avocado for skin

Avocado benefits the skin in many ways, which is why you’ll find this wonder ingredient in a variety of creams, moisturisers, masks and (in the case of St.Tropez) fake tan 

  • It infuses skin with Vitamin D: Avocado Oil is rich in Vitamin D, providing all the benefits of the sunshine, without the damage.
  • It helps keep skin hydrated: Avocado Oil has emollient and occlusive properties, meaning that it both draws moisture into the skin and helps to keep it there. The result? Soft and hydrated skin!
  • It protects skin from environmental damage: Rich in antioxidants and Vitamin E, one of the key benefits of Avocado for skin is its ability to shield from free radical and environmental damage.
  • It helps keep skin plump and firm: Avocado Oil can help maintain collagen levels (the protein that keeps skin looking plump and firm) by shielding the skin from enzymes that damage this collagen and cause it to break down.  

Why use Avocado skincare and tanners?

To enjoy the benefits of Avocado for skin, either apply the oil directly to the skin, or use it as part of your skincare routine. Our recommendation? Opt for a fake tan that not only creates a gorgeous golden glow, but keeps skin hydrated and healthy too.
