From acting as a natural hair replenisher to a natural teeth whitener, the array of coconut oil uses in the beauty world can never get enough praise.
Bursting with vitamins, minerals and bacteria-fighting properties, we look at the 3 Coconut Oil face treatments that you can apply, by yourself, in the comfort of your own home:
1. Acne Treatment
Coconut Oil contains Lauric Acid and Capric Acid – two of the best antimicrobial properties on the market today. Once these two nutrient-bursting fatty acids enter the skin through application, their microbes replace the protective acid layer of skin preventing any further acne forming. As the age old saying goes: ‘Prevention is better than cure!’
Coconut Oils face and acne treatment wonders don’t end there.
Coconut Oils known as an anti-inflammatory meaning once your skin absorbs it, the inflammation that’s caused from acne starts reducing almost immediately. The soothing feeling from applying Coconut Oil on your face also means even the harshest of wounds from cases of acne can be made bearable again.
2. Skin Softner
Fed up of the chemically-pumped facial moisturizers doing more harm than good on your skin? Enter…Coconut Oil.
Coconut Oil’s great for all cases of dry skin and in all cases of harsh weather. Its healthy hydration properties mean dry skin is a thing of the past. Not only does Coconut Oil help treat dry skin, it also softens the harder areas of skin on your face.
