Cardi B DIY mask

Cardi B revealed to us the secret to her dream hair: a DIY mask and an in & out beauty routine Madam President . In any case, we would have liked it!

Her mask , made from avocado, was delicious, creamy and glamorous!

For 12 months, we have been completely obsessed. We're counting down the minutes to make this mask... So, we decided to sit down on it and take the opportunity to tell you everything about avocado. Attention, quiz at the end of reading!

Honestly, it's already hard to know if the avocado is a fruit or a vegetable. For those who know, you are real champions, because we need a little updated session.

The lawyer: A somewhat naughty origin

“It’s a fruit!” “No, it’s a vegetable!”, “But noooo, it’s a fruit!”.

In fact, it's almost all a question of point of view because botanists and cooks are clearly not on the same wavelength. Looks like the tomato debate...

We'll let Arte speak: originally from Mexico, the scientific name of the avocado is Persea americana, from the Lauraceae family. It is a word derived from the Spanish aguacate, which means “testicle”, so it is in reference to its shape that the fruit takes its name. There you have it, a new word to use in everyday life. QED

Despite an origin with a somewhat cheeky name, the avocado is a fruit in the botanical sense, despite the fact that it is commonly used on our plates as a vegetable. Ok, we understand it well, it's a fruit, nevertheless, in the supermarket, we find it rather alongside vegetables... #jesuisalouest

You can consider it as a fruit or a vegetable, or even both, but what you especially need to know is that the avocado has real health benefits thanks to its numerous and diverse nutrients.

Here is a quick reminder of the nutritional values ​​of avocado:

73.3g of water

20.6g of lipids
