There are many, many benefits to incorporating coconut oil into your daily routine. Let’s take a minute to talk about the easiest ways to enjoy the benefits of coconut oil.
First and foremost, let’s talk hair. I know many women, myself included, who struggle with their hair ~ it’s not as silky as is used to be, it’s not as thick as it once was, and it lacks the bounce and shine that it once had. I’ve tried numerous products, both internal and topical and have found that coconut oil consistently and repeatedly came to the rescue. Check out the advice of Dr. Axe, he’s got some terrific suggestions.
A couple more reasons to add coconut oil into your life is for skin care: According to this study on effects of plant oils on the skin, coconut oil has been found to have anti-aging, antioxidant, wound healing, and anti-inflammatory properties. It has been successfully used to prevent dry, flaky skin. It helps speed up wound healing. The active component of monolaurin in coconut oil renders it anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral. Coconut oil reduces the severity of eczema and psoriasis. One more notable use…Drumroll, please…. it promotes Agelessness by delaying the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin! Lastly, there’s no chance of any adverse side effects from the application of this oil to your skin.
