Coconut oil is so much more than a delicious ingredient in clean, raw desserts. Coconut oil is absolutely fantastic for your skin!
Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids that provide some incredible skin loving benefits.
Read on to find out a few ways coconut oil can transform your skin:
Prevents Moisture Loss And Keeps The Skin Youthful
There's nothing worse than a dry, dull and flakey skin.
Fortunately, coconut oil can fix this issue with just one application!
Coconut oil has humectant properties thanks to its rich concentration of medium chain fatty acids. This means it draws moisture from the environment and locks it into the skin, helping to keep the skin super hydrated.
Hydrated skin is the key to youthful skin, and by ensuring your skin is properly moisturised every day, you help to prevent and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Alongside fatty acids, coconut oil also contains some excellent skin nourishing ingredients including vitamins A, B1, B2, D, and E.
These vitamins work together beautifully to strengthen the skin, protect it and fight free radicals that can contribute to the signs of aging.
Reduces and Prevents Stretch Marks During Pregnancy
During pregnancy, stretch marks are caused when the skin is stretched to its limit without enough elasticity.
Coconut oil prevents stretch marks by improving elasticity and enhancing that gorgeous pregnancy glow!
Heals The Skin
Acne sufferers may shy away from oils like coconut oil, believing that oil will only increase breakouts.This is not true.
Coconut oil’s fatty acids, vitamins and antibacterial properties will actually help to heal and prevent acne breakouts, as well as other inflammatory conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.
Coconut oil is also wonderful for relaxing the mind thanks to it's soothing aroma, making it perfect for your next pamper session!
