The Many Ways Your Skin Benefits from Coconut Oil

Are you looking for a natural beauty product that is widely available and accessible? You don’t need to look very far than your own kitchen. If you have coconut oil stashed somewhere, that is. Yes, the only organic product that you need for overall wellness is the tree of life as people in the tropical areas call it.

How can you use coconut oil as a skin care product? Let me count the ways.

As a makeup remover

Sleeping with your makeup on is a major no-no. While you can always wash with water and your choice of facial wash, there are benefits to using coconut oil instead. Simply apply oil on your face and then wipe with a soft cloth. No need to rinse with water. Don’t like the feel of oil on your face? You should make an exception in this case, because coconut oil will keep your face hydrated as well as protect it from blemishes because of its natural anti-bacterial properties.

As a moisturizer

Nothing is better than coconut oil as a moisturizer. Although it is full of fatty acids, it soaks in really quickly, keeping your face from looking oily and slimy. You can also use coconut oil under makeup.

As a frizz control

Have you tried just about anything to keep the frizz off your hair? Rather than use products that may have harmful chemicals, such as silicone hair shine or dimethicone, use coconut oil with a soft touch.

As skin protection

Not only does coconut oil prevent and treat blemishes, it also cures a host of other skin problems. The lauric acid in coconut is anti-microbial, anti-viral and anti-fungal. It can help with cuts, cold sores, fungal infections and even acne, when used topically.

These are just a few of the many ways that coconut oil can be used as a beauty product. Plenty of skin-care items in the market have coconut oil, but always check the label when choosing the right one.
