In 2011, about $50 billion were spent in the USA on beauty products alone, which shows how big this industry is. Everyone wants to have nice skin, but not everyone does the effort to make it so. Everyone needs to understand that the condition of your skin mirrors the one in your body.
Some beauty products and treatments help, but they are expensive, not to mention ineffective in some cases. Thankfully, there is a natural ingredient can improve the quality of your skin and treat many conditions – coconut oil.
Why is it good for the skin?
Coconut oil contains essential nutrients and lauric acid, an acid that heals wounds, reduces rashes and prevents acne outbreaks while improving the quality of your skin. It can relieve numerous conditions and eliminate any skin problem.
Coconut oil improves vitamin E absorption
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that can protect the skin from free radicals which can speed up the aging process. According to a 1999 study conducted at the University of Western Ontario in Canada, using coconut oil will improve the body’s absorption of vitamin E through the skin, and the results also showed that a combination of coconut oil and vitamin E can help you if you’re suffering from gastrointestinal malabsorption disease.
How to use it?
Applying coconut oil on your face is very simple, just make sure you’re using unrefined, cold-pressed coconut oil.
Wash your face well in the morning and evening, then dry it well before taking some coconut oil and rubbing on your face gently.
