I’m always looking for new ways to keep my skin healthy and radiant. Two months ago I ran out of my usual (and expensive) anti-oxidant day cream. Fearing I might dry up and blow away, I massaged a bit of organic coconut oil (what I use for cooking) onto my face and neck. I loved how my skin absorbed it right in so I thought I’d try a bit of an experiment and use it for two months. Wow, I will never go back to day creams! Coconut oil has softened my skin, made it clear, helps with wrinkles and contains no chemicals or additives. It’s amazing!
I knew coconut oil was a very healthy oil to eat, but I couldn’t imagine how much I would like it on my skin. Combined with a healthy diet, supplements and plenty of rest, coconut oil keeps skin healthy. It’s got antioxidant properties and antimicrobial properties to protect skin against sun and other environmental factors.
I now use coconut oil as a body lotion and I’ve just read that you can also use it as a pre-wash hair conditioner. I can’t wait to try it.
I still use Dermalift at night. It is simply the best anti-wrinkle cream I’ve come across.
