Coconut oil uses are numerous and include being one of the best organic facial products.
And a natural tanning lotion is another one of the many uses of coconut oil.
The Original Organic Sunscreen!
I was brought up in Hawaii and went to the beach a lot when I was young. We used coconut oil on our skin instead of commercial sunscreens way back when. I still remember the incredible smell and beautiful tans.
And unlike most sunscreens, coconut oil does not block the UV rays that are necessary for vitamin D synthesis on the skin. Coconut oil also protects your skin from environmental exposure damage.
Being an organic sunscreen is just one of the many uses for coconut oil for a beautiful body. Even Dr. Oz has called coconut oil a "natural" sunscreen.
Using coconut oil or organic facial products on your skin is not only healthy for it, but helps to protect it from the elements.
It is one of the most natural, inexpensive, and effective moisturizers.
Organic facial products like organic virgin coconut oil have a natural antioxidant called vitamin E, plus powerful medium chain fatty acids known for their healing abilities.
Most facial products have too much water and refined vegetable oils which can cause free radical damage to your skin.
Once free radical damage starts, it can cause a chain reaction which ultimately damages thousands of molecules - Yikes!
Coconut oil has the ability to soften your skin and protect it from free radical damage.
You can get this protection from applying this oil to your skin or even by ingesting high quality extra virgin coconut oil internally.
And by applying coconut oil to your skin, you can remove dead skin cells which helps to give your skin that youthful appearance again. You can even make a body scrub using coconut oil as the base.
One of my favorite cosmetic coconut oil uses is as a make-up remover. It works fast and at only a fraction of the cost of other make-up removers.
I also like to use this oil on my hair whenever it needs more moisture and on any dry skin.
