Coconut oil has become one of the hottest foods around, and with good reason.
This incredible superfood is not only great for your health - it can make you look 10 years younger in just a couple of weeks time, which is probably why so many people have learned they just can't live without it.
After all, when there's no need to spend your hard earned money on pricey lotions, creams, conditioners and so on, why would you continue to do so?
Unlike mass-manufactured products, it penetrates deeper into the skin and hair to moisturize in a more natural way, all while delivering key nutrients to your skin cells.
Coconut oil is an age-defying secret that can be used both inside and out to slow aging. Using it as a moisturizer puts nutrients back into the skin, as opposed to mineral oil-based products that tend to suffocate it without offering any nutritional benefits.
Nightly face treatment
One good way to use it is as a treatment just before bed. If it's solid, just take a little and rub it into your hands. As it warms it will become a liquid that can be rubbed onto your face. Allow it to sit for about 30 minutes so that the skin can totally absorb it. Afterwards, gently rinse it off using a moist towel.
Nourishing hand treatment
If you have dry hands, you can use it to nourish them and restore moisture. Warm it up as before and use it like you would a lotion. For an especially deep treatment, place gloves over your hands to help trap the moisture in which will not only moisturize them, it can help fade age spots too.
Natural hair conditioner
Coconut oil is an excellent natural hair conditioner. Melt about a tablespoon of it using your hands, and then apply to throughout your hair, especially on the ends. Don't rinse yet. Allow it to penetrate your hair for up to two hours - the longer the better. Afterward, jump in the shower and rinse, and then shampoo as you normally would.
