Avocado oil is wonderfully moisturizing, and safe to put directly on your skin, so if you’d like to use it alone in place of manufactured creams, it is safe to do so. However, you can also benefit from finding a cream that contains added avocado oil. To demonstrate just how effective it is at treating dry, flaky skin, one study observed participants with chronic plaque psoriasis who used a vitamin B12 cream infused with avocado oil and saw significant, long-term positive results. Just a little bit goes a long way, so consider adding a teaspoon amount directly to
to dry skin, or mixing it in with your other moisturizer.
