Coconut Oil has cosmetic value because coconut oil is made up of medium chain fatty acids that are easily absorbed by the skin, giving the skin a soft texture. Hence coconut oil is perfect to use on dry cracked skin. Put it on your chapped heals!
Coconut oil forms a protective barrier to hold in moisture while penetrating into the deeper layers of the skin, helping to keep connective tissues strong and supple.
Coconut oil can also be used a makeup remover. Women have begun using it for removing the makeup off of their face and eyes, without worrying about the harsh chemicals of other removers getting into delicate or sensitive areas.
Eat a tablespoon of Coconut Oil a day for an Immune System Boost. Coconut Oil is antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral. Coconut oil contains lauric acid, which is known to reduce candida, fight bacteria, and create a hostile environment for viruses.
Next time you think about putting on a cream, reach for your coconut oil, but be sure to use organic unrefined coconut oil-it’s by far the best type of coconut oil, in my opinion.
