Ready to learn more about coconut oil for skin that’s healthy and nourished?
Coconut oil is one of my favorite skincare products, probably because my skin just seems to love it. My face in particular is incredibly picky about what I put on it, but it gets along just fine with coconut oil.
What’s so special about coconut oil?
The unique medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil have anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties, and they also serve as antioxidants which protect your skin. So coconut oil is essentially food for your skin!
But I’m not the only one who loves using coconut oil for my skin. Below are some of my favorite coconut oil skin recipes from this blog and many others. Try one out today!
PS: A lot of these recipes use essential oils. Learn where I shop for high quality therapeutic essential oils online.
