Coconut Oil for Skin
Millions of people use skin products everyday, but what if you found out that everything you are using is actually toxic and harmful to your skin. Well it turns out that most artificially created products are more harmful to skin than more natural alternatives. Using coconut oil for your skin is one of the most beneficial things you can do to improve the health of your skin because it is completely natural and contains many vitamins and minerals that the larger, artificially created brands do not.
Whatever you put on your skin is going to be directly absorbed into your body so it’s important to know exactly what you’re putting on your skin, but the problem is that most of the time we have no idea what we really are putting on our skin. That’s why coconut oil is so amazing for your skin, because not only is it edible, it’s a wonder-food that has been renowned for weight loss and reducing the risk of diabetes. It’s also known as anti-microbial, which makes it perfect for people who want to reduce the risk of skin diseases caused by fungus or bacteria. You may be worried about the coconut oil being greasy on your skin, but it actually isn’t. It is absorbed completely into your skin in just a couple of minutes so if you can withstand the few minutes of oily skin then you should definitely try using coconut oil.
Coconut oil acts as a moisturizer, multi-vitamin, and antioxidant all in one! It’s got a high moisture capacity so it keeps your skin moist, avoiding drying out like most other “moisturizers.” It contains fats so it gives a softening and soothing effect on your skin, as well as improves the health of your skin, removing pimples and acne more quickly than other face creams. This is because it kills the bacteria that causes the redness and swelling. To get the full effect you will want to apply a very thin layer of coconut oil and leave it for 2 minutes before wiping it off. Make sure to not leave it on for too long because it is possible for the coconut oil to clog the pores and cause more problems.
If that isn’t enough it also soothes itching and dry skin, as well as smoothes out wrinkles! Seriously, can coconut oil get any better than that? In fact it can, by reducing dead skin cells which cause your skin to flake. By applying coconut oil to your skin you can make yourself look years younger. Among those benefits, coconut oil acts as a natural deodorant by removing the bacterial growth that occurs on your skin. You just apply it under your arms and enjoy the delicious coconut smell!
There are many benefits of using coconut oil on your skin, just make sure not to overdo it. Don’t put coconut oil on every 10 minutes because that can make your skin seem oily. Just replace it with your daily moisturizer and you should start to see the benefits almost immediately. I’ve replaced all my moisturizers with coconut oil and I am loving the difference I’m seeing already.
