The Beauty Benefits of Coconut
As it happens, coconut isn’t just good for your physical health but it is also good for your appearance! The saturated fats that are present in coconut oil are excellent in helping to retain the moisture content of skin. This means that your skin will have a glowing finish with nonexistent pores. Additionally, coconut oil’s saturated fats are not only helping through topical application. When ingesting coconut oil, the saturated fats deposit under the skin which then reduces the appearance of pores from the inside out. The caprylic acid which is present in coconut oil protects the skin from infections. As a skin treatment this oil will aid in the healing of open acne wounds, but when ingested it acts as an immune system boost to help the body fight off infections internally. Vitamin E is essential for all healthy skin as it promotes growth and healing from all that we do to our skin and also reduces the look of wrinkling and prevents premature aging. Coconut oil can be used as a moisturizer, anti-aging cream, lip balm, makeup remover, and to help callused feet.
