Coconut Oil

Oh coconut oil, how I love thee…Have you ever cooked with coconut oil? That is what most people would think to do with it. You can also use it to achieve beautifully glowing, hydrated, clear skin with regular use. But it has to be a special coconut oil. It has to say virgin on the label-it must be pure, unrefined, and cold-pressed.  What does all that mean to you? Well we will explain further as well as tell you some of the amazing benefits if you use coconut oil on your skin daily.

Cold-Pressed Extraction

Virgin coconut oil is not processed in any way. The coconut is literally cold-pressed to extract the oil of the coconut and no heating is done to the coconut. This is the coconut oil you need to purchase. On the label you should read words including organic, extra virgin, unrefined, cold-pressed, not deodorized, not bleached, etc. Don’t get thrown off if it says “cooking oil.” It can also be cooked with but it MUST be cold-pressed! It is solid in form and is easy to apply to the skin. Simply massage your clean fingers over the top of the hardened oil and the warmth of your fingertips will start to warm the oil, allowing it to seep onto your fingertips. Then start to apply the oil to your clean face and body. Coconut oil can be used in place of a moisturizer on your skin. You can also use coconut oil on your nails and cuticles, in your hair to relieve dryness, and even on your lips. It smells lightly beautiful, light enough for men and women to enjoy but in no way overpowering or offensive. A simply beautiful scent.

Benefits for Your Skin

Pure coconut oil will not clog your pores. It will hydrate your skin but will not leave you feeling greasy. Coconut oil is antimicrobial, antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal due to the lauric acid, carpric acid, and caprylic acid that is present in the oil. It will minimize acne breakouts, prevent new acne breakouts form occurring, leave your skin looking radiant and refreshed, and moisturize your skin in a way you’ve never experienced before. Open pimples and wounds will heal quickly thanks to the healing qualities of coconut oil. It is also beautiful to use for massaging purposes and helps the hands and fingers of the masseuse glide gently along tender and stress-filled muscles, aches, and pains. Do not debate if you should try coconut oil on your skin…the longer you wait, the longer you miss out on the wonderful benefits of virgin coconut oil.
