The Wonders Of Coconut Oil

Why coconut oil is a little better than your face moisturizer and as a serum for your hair

Store bought moisturizers contain lots of water, which makes your feel like your skin is being moisturized. But as soon as the water dries, your skin becomes dry again. Also, many store brand moisturizers contain petroleum-based ingredients that can suffocate the skin. In contrast, coconut oil provides deep and real moisture. It helps strengthen underlying tissues and helps remove excessive dead cell on the skin's surface that makes your skin rough and flaky in texture. It is also great for shine and as a natural moisturizer for your hair.

Coconut Oil For The Hair

Coconut oil can help encourage hair growth, reduce hair loss and restore protein loss in dry damaged hair. Massage coconut oil into your scalp as a pre-wash, anti-dandruff treatment or leave in overnight. Just remember to wash out the coconut oil in the morning to leave your hair looking shiny and healthy


Helpful Tip: Rub a dime-sized amount (a little goes a long way with this stuff) of coconut oil on to dry ends to hydrate and tame frizzy and  fly aways. On your face, apply as you would your normal moisturizer. While it tends to have a greasier consistency (at first), it's quickly absorbs into skin. A spoonful is enough to hydrate your entire body; swap it in for your current lotion. 


Coconut Oil For Your Skin

Coconut oil contains vitamin E, is rich in antioxidants and its high content of Lauric Acid help revitalize your skin to look softer and younger. It will absorb easily into your skin without feeling greasy. Coconut Oil can be used as face moisturizer, skin lotion, massage oil, after sun cream and protects against dry and aging skin. Coconut oil helps improve symptoms of skin infections and reduces blemishes and spots. Since coconut oil is suitable for all skin types, it can be safely used on a baby’s skin specifically for diaper rash eliminating the need to worry about chemicals or any harsh ingredients. This fabulous oil also has  an anti fungal property so it leaves you feet feeling wonderful.
