Coconut Oil is the latest rage in skin care and hair care products. It’s even been rediscovered as a healthy oil for cooking (though once thought otherwise). Like many of nature’s best kept secrets, it’s not new to everyone. Polynesians have used coconut oil for generations to protect and nourish skin. Here are some healthful benefits that Coconut Oil can bring.
We all want the fountain of youth. Coconut oil fights the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Not only that it does it naturally without the chemicals found in other skin care ingredients. It soaks in easily and doesn’t leave a heavy film on the skin like other products often do. Your skin feels soft and moisturized rather than oily.
It is similar to the natural oils in your skin so it soaks in easy while providing high levels of anti-oxidants which go to work to fight the aging effects of the sun and the environment. Coconut Oil is also very high in Lauric Acid which is a natural anti-micorbial in the body.
Whether or not to use it on your face depends on your preferences and skin type. You can add it to your normal skin care routine. A little bit goes a long way. Fortunately more and more facial care products are adding coconut oil to their products.
Take a look at your normal lotions and see if they contain coconut oil. Perhaps they have a version of your favorite lotions that are similar to what you use now. You can even buy it in raw form and try adding a little bit to your lotion as you put it on or put it on directly.
