Okay, I can tell what you’re thinking already. “10 years younger? How can oil do that for me?” You, my friend, are underestimating the power of coconut oil. By the time this article is through, you’re going to be tossing your name brand shampoos and lotions and stocking up on coconut oil.
Coconut oil is a powerful cosmetic tool. Unlike mass-manufactured lotions and conditioners, it penetrates deeper into the skin and hair and moisturizes in a more natural way, all while delivering key nutrients to your skin cells.
There are just a few simple treatments you need to do in order to reap the benefits of this delightful oil.
1. Before bed treatment.
This is one you should do each and every single night before you go to bed. Take a dab of coconut oil and warm in your hands. When coconut oil is cool, it’s solid. As it warms, it turns into a liquid. Once in its liquid form, rub gently onto your face.
Typically I’ll let the coconut oil sit on my skin for a while. Maybe 30-60 minutes. It’s amazing how much of it ends up being absorbed into your skin. When you’re ready to remove it, wet a towel with water as hot as your skin can tolerate. Wipe the oil off of your skin, then dry with a dry towel.
