Avocados are rich in skin repairing fatty acids that help to hydrate the skin cells from the inside out for dewy skin. Avocados may also help to alleviate inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.
Just be sure to use whole grain bread or gluten free bread instead of the highly processed versions rampant in every grocery store.
