One more to add to the list of things coconut oil can remedy...Aging. Good quality coconut oil is chocked full of Vitamin E and antioxidant-rich so it staves off free radicals & the damage they cause. It acts as a protective layer to the skin, much in the same way the oil our body naturally produces (sebum) does, because it's mostly made up of the MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) lauric acid, also found in breast milk. Minimally heated & processed coconut oil (like Coco Luxe) strengthens & hydrates the skin beneath the surface, protecting skin on a cellular level.
Apply coconut oil to your face before you shower to protect skin from the drying effects of water, or immediately after, while the skin is still damp. This will literally lock in the moisture. Coconut oil can be used as a face & body wash, not just a moisturizer, because it contains anti-bacterial, -fungal and -microbial properties.
