You roll over in bed, stretch, rub your eyes, and you're greeted by the familiar sound of your grumbling stomach. It's breakfast time. What do you reach for? If you're anything like us, you toss a piece of bread in the toaster, mash an avocado, and crack an egg into the frying pan.
There's more to this routine than our obsession with avocado toast. Turns out, the millenial-favored fruit—yes, it's a fruit—contains high levels of vitamin E! Vitamin E...so what? Well, sit down and let us tell you. Did you know the vitamin has some pretty impressive skin perks?
