Coconut Oil For Skin

Using coconut oil for skin and your hair has been very popular as this natural oil can be used for many things such as a moisturizer, massage oil and you can also add it to your meals. There are many reasons why using coconut oil for your skin is better than using other commercial products such as the oil gets absorbed into the skin far more better than any other skin care products.

Coconut oil also contains a lot of antioxidants to get rid of free radicals in the body and also the skin, so using the oil on your skin daily as well as adding it to your meals you will gain better health.

When you are young our skin has a lot of elasticity which makes our skin wrinkle free and smooth but as we get older you can lose that elasticity and fine lines can start to appear. If you have too many free radicals in the body, they can also attack the connective fibers of the skin which can also cause sagging.

The only way to stop free radicals from attacking your body is to add antioxidants such as coconut oil and other natural health foods such as citrus fruits which contains Vitamin C. If you see signs of liver spots on the skin it is a sign that your skin is being attacked by free radicals and an effective skin care program should be applied.

Using coconut oil after a shower or bath is the most effective way to get smoother looking skin and it will also prevent any dryness of the skin as well. Always use pure virgin coconut oil for best results as it is more natural and does not have any added ingredients.

Coconut oil is also an effective natural treatment for individuals who suffer from eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis as it is very gentle to the skin and will not cause any skin irritations. It is recommended that you use it regularly to get the best results.

You can also buy skin care lotions that have coconut oil in them as well as other natural ingredients such as aloe vera, vitamin c and lavender which can also protect your skin and also minimize face wrinkles.

Adding coconut oil to your skin care program will help heal the skin and prevent any more damage. It will also reduce the amount of fine line or wrinkles on the skin as well. If using coconut oil for face or the body, you only need to use a small amount for it to be effective.

No matter how old you are, using coconut oil for skin and anywhere on the body is a great way to slow down the aging process and also improve the look of your skin.

Thanks, most people do not think I have normal habits as a man, but have very dry skin on my arms and legs. So I have been using a baby oil or mineral oil. It has improved my skin considerably, but I have been considering that I should use something natural and organic instead of the mineral oil. Your article has inspired me.
