How much do you spend on moisturizers? How confusing are all these anti-aging options and claims? And how thrown back are you at how freaking expensive some tiny tube of anti-aging moisturizer is??? Well nature has a cost effective option for you, its coconut oil!!
First - WHY would I put oil on my face how gross is that!!! That was my first thought too. Next time you are at a store with free samples of coconut oil, just put a tiny bit between your fingers. First it appears semi-solid and upon the heat of your fingers it melts instantly. Put that on your arm or elbow you will see instead of looking oily and 'gross' it gets absorbed right into the skin!
Most moisturizers on the market if you look at the ingredients the first one is water! Water is very quickly absorbed into dry skin and expands the skin tissue for a brief time, leaving the skin feeling temporary tight, plump and hydrated. The water quickly leaves the tissue resulting in the skin feeling wrinkled and dry once again.
Free radicals cause the constant breakdown of skin. Using coconut oil with natural vitamin E and helps skin stay pliable, subtly and string, eliminating any breakdown. If you look you will see amazing stories of coconut oil use as it has natural antiviral properties! Organic Coconut oil contains more than 50% Lauric Acid. Lauric Acid is an antiviral component that can be found in mother’s breast milk. Lauric acid has known properties to help treat cold sores, herpes, boils, acne, and even warts. Coconut oil contains vitamin E, which helps reduce scaring and remedy scrapes and cuts. It is also a bacterial barrier that will prevent any infections. Organic coconut oil is a fantastic natural personal lubricant used for sexual lubrication. It contains no glycerin or parabens like most lubricants do. It’s antimicrobial and antibacterial properties help stop UTI’s and yeast infections. This is also an excellent natural massage oil. One of the other great benefits to coconut oil is for the treatment of hair. It has a really small molecular structure that allows for a quick penetration into hair follicles and leaves your hair shiny and healthy. It also increases the cell turnover rate, so it is very effective in treating dandruff or itchy scalp ailments.
