Coconut Oil is a well-known ingredient with many uses in everything from cooking to skin care. Its saturated fat content is a huge benefit for those seeking skin that is smooth to the touch, as when applied topically it helps to lock in the skin’s own moisture. When ingested, however these fats gather under the skin giving it a smooth, plump and even tone and reduces the over-all appearance of pores.
The anti-aging properties of Coconut Oil are numerous, and are largely attributed to the high anti-oxidant levels and the ability to increase collagen levels in the body. The anti-inflammatory properties of coconut oil also help to treat several skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema. Great for cracked lips, dry skin and scarring, Coconut Oil contains Vitamin E, improving overall skin health and aiding the healing of marks and wounds.
