Woman squeezing half a lemon into a glass bowl of crushed avocado

Smashed avocado and broad beans

Freshen up your complexion for the New Year with this skin-friendly recipe from nutritionist Rob Hobson.

This is a versatile dish that can be served as a snack on top of rice cakes or used as a topping for dishes like chilli or salads.

Avocado is a good skin ingredient, as it contains a high amount of vitamin E, which can help protect cells from damage from oxidative stress, as well as skin-maintaining B vitamins.
