HOW COCONUT OIL BENEFITS YOUR SKIN
Coconut Oil Provides Endless Uses & Fantastic Results
| || |
One of the main reasons coconut oil is so good for our skin is because the oil is absorbed into the skin so easily and into the cell structure of our connective tissues. Coconut oil does wonders to keep connective tissue strong. The better shape connective tissues are in, the more supple and elastic our skin remains. It also works in an exfoliating manner, helping to shed the top layer of dead cells, leaving you with skin that is soft and smooth and has a healthy “sheen.”
In addition to its benefits for your skin, coconut oil is wonderful to maintain a healthy scalp and shiny hair. It can also aid in weight loss, as it has properties to increase our body’s metabolism. Coconut oil is effective for eczema and other types of dry skin afflictions and can help any dry patches or callused places on feet and hands. If you do not already have a jar of coconut oil in your home (I recommend the organic virgin variety) please make the small investment, as it has so many everyday uses and you will definitely get a lot your money's worth. Try coconut oil and experience the vast improvements in your skin, hair, and scalp, and don’t forget how it revs up your metabolism! Much like the multipurpose product petroleum jelly, coconut oil is wonder oil just waiting to be welcomed into your life. The following products are coconut-based and great for your skin (and your disposition)!
