There is no denying that COCONUT OIL is a mystical ingredient. Coconut oil can heal wounds, save lives, make you feel happy and smell delicious all the while. Fact.
The benefits of coconut oil are more than just skin deep, with health benefits listed include controlling diabetes, promoting digestion and strengthening the immune system, but its properties when applied on the skin are insane.
But what does it actually do?
Smoothes and softens the skin.
Coconut oil is a natural moisturiser and very lightweight when applied to the skin. Due to its low molecular weight, coconut oil can penetrate your epidermis more effectively than other water-based products, making it perfect for those with very dry skin or in winter climates.
Anti-Inflammatory & Anti-Bacterial.
Coconut oil can help in reliving redness, including rashes, burns and even acne. For acne-prone skin especially, applying coconut oil in light doses can help exfoliate and moisturise the skin for a clearer complexion. This helps skin heal faster and makes it stronger and healthier while healing.
Thought you could never wear self-tan or bronzing products on your eczema-prone skin because they would only aggravate it? Not when coconut oil is involved. Coconut oil can inhibit the growth of harmful micro-organisms and help heal painful skin and infections in the longer term.
Fights the signs of ageing.
Coconut oil not only promotes elasticity in the skin for quicker ‘bounce back’, but can prevent future signs of fine lines and wrinkles by plumping the skin. The Vitamin E properties in the super ingredient help your skin’s ability to heal as well as increasing collagen production.
Stretch marks be gone.
Applying coconut oil regularly to your body can reduce the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite, making it the perfect firming treatment in skin and body care products.
The perfect detox.
Coconut oil is full of antioxidants which have been proven to help the body detox over time. Adding it to your bath helps to soak in the antioxidants within the oil, and your skin will come our visibly refreshed and rejuvenated.
