The 5 Best Beauty Benefits of Coconut Oil
By now you probably have a tub of coconut oil in your pantry, ready to use for a myriad of things: cooking, baking, weight loss to name a few. But did you know this do-it all natural oil can also be used to boost your beauty routine? From taming frizzy locks to moisturizing dry skin it has a wide and diverse range of beauty enhancing properties. Coconut oil has become a popular ingredient in many beauty products, and has become the staple ingredient for many beauty-conscious women around the world. So what are the beauty benefits of coconut oil? Let’s break it down into five beauty categories: face, body, hair, bath and relaxation.
Many cleansers on the market today are made with harsh chemicals that strip the skin of its natural oils, which often leads to skin issues such as acne and clogged pores. Coconut oil is used in many natural face products and for good reason: it’s naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and moisturizing. Coconut oil is composed primarily of nourishing fatty acids and is especially high in lauric acid. It also contains vitamin E and healthy fats, which help to make skin smooth. The benefits of coconut oil for your face can be found in a variety of products, on its own or as part of a nourishing blend. Pure Fiji is a line of natural skincare products that use hand pressed virgin coconut oil from fresh coconuts. Their hydrating multi-active day cream is just one of the many products that you can use to reap the benefits of coconut oil for your face. It hydrates skin for 24 hours and helps to improve skin elasticity and collagen production. Coconut oil is also known for its anti-aging properties. Coconut oil has anti-oxidants such as Vitamin E and Vitamin A, which help to slow down the aging process and may help to reduce the damage from free radicals and the sun.
Not only is coconut oil used as a moisturizer for your face, it is also an amazing moisturizer for your body. Coconut oil is known for its anti-oxidant properties and as such it has been used to treat various skin ailments such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. Coconut oil can help to restore the skin’s natural PH levels thus leaving it silky and smooth. Coconut oil is often used as a base oil in body care products such as lotions, creams and body butters. Pure Fiji’s hydrating body lotion contains a blend of cold pressed coconut oil and coconut milk that hydrates, nourishes and protects your skin on contact. It is a great natural skincare product that will help to soften and soothe your skin.
The benefits of coconut oil aren’t just for the skin. Your hair can also benefit from this amazing natural oil. It has been known as a savior for dry, parched hair for years. Coconut oil can penetrate inside the hair shaft better than other oils because of its fatty acid structure and low molecular weight. Regular use of coconut oil on the hair not only nourishes your dry strands but also strengthens and protects, thus reducing protein loss and damage due to styling and coloring. Pure Fiji’s coconut milk shampoo and coconut creme conditioner help to repair damage and improve resilience in the hair, thus leaving you with restored bounce, shine and healthy looking hair.
Coconut oil doesn’t have to be applied directly to the skin in order to fully reap its benefits. It can also be used as part of your regular bath time routine. Adding coconut oil to your bath water will help to moisturize your skin from head to toe. Pure Fiji’s coconut milk bath soak is a blend of fresh coconut milk with coconut, dilo and macadamia nut oils that rejuvenate, nourish and re-hydrate dry skin. The result after your bath is skin that is soft, supple and revitalized.
Coconut oil is also known for its relaxation benefits, especially in the form of massage. It acts as an effective moisturizer while the exotic coconut scent relaxes your senses. Because the skin easily absorbs coconut oil, it is a great choice as massage oil. A massage with coconut oil can also help to soothe and relax tight muscles in the body. A great choice for massage oil is Pure Fiji’s exotic bath and body oil. A massage with this oil helps to promote healing, hydration and rejuvenation of the skin.
The recent rise in popularity of coconut oil is mainly due to the fact that it is a natural beauty product. Many women are moving away from chemical laden products and turning to natural ingredients for a more natural skincare routine. With so many amazing products available on the market that contain this amazing oil, why not try it for yourself?
