Coconut oil has been highly raved about for several years already- and it’s all for good reasons.
The oil has been a great help to a handful of health issues. From diabetes, heart problems and even abnormal cholesterol levels, coconut oil has components to address every issue.
It can even be used in getting clearer and healthier skin. Here’s how:
- Coconut oil can prevent premature skin aging by acting as a physical barrier against environmental pollutants. This action stops the oxidative damage that can make you look older than your actual age.
- Coconut oil has antifungal properties to ward off infections, too. It can even control bacterial growth, especially for cases of acne.
- The oil also makes a great alternative to your usual exfoliant. It can gently soften keratin caps to make it easier for you to get rid of dead skin cells.
It can soften hardened sebum, too.
- With an SPF rating of 4, coconut oil offers mild sun protective properties. It can provide protection if you’re simply going out of the house for really short periods.
For a long time at the beach, however, you might want to use a stronger sunscreen.
