Hate dry skin? Try coconut oil!

The power of Coconut Oil

The power of Coconut Oil

When The Universe sends you messages, especially in threes, it’s a good idea to listen. I first heard about the benefits of coconut oil over the weekend when I was getting a pedicure. The woman next to me was saying that she started rubbing coconut oil on her feet, and they have been silky-soft ever since. Next, I read about the marvels of coconut oil in this month’s Harper’s Bazaar. And number three? I found this giant, 54 fl. oz. container of coconut oil at COSTCO today. So, it was time to try it!

Coconut oil locks in moisture without petroleum-based ingredients or chemicals. And coconut oil has benefits for diet, hair, and skin, because of its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties.  Look for virgin coconut oil: I easily found Carrington Farms Pure, Unrefined, Cold-Pressed, Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. When I rubbed it on, my skin started to feel softer immediately. And am I imagining an added glow? With 54 fl. oz., I will be rubbing it on for a very long time and will keep you posted of the results on my skin and specifically, my feet. One thing is for sure: the tropical smells are enough to keep me coming back.

Coconut oil. You may want to try it, too? Did someone say piña colada?

  1. That is really, really interesting…I started cooking with coconut oil, in lieu of olive oil. A friend of mine, who also happens to be a nutritionist, recommended it to me. I guess it is healthier.

    So, I am gathering that co-o is good for me on the inside AND outside? 🙂
    I already have some in the cupboard and now I guess I shall add a little scoop of it to my make-up cabinet!

    Oh…we also drink co-o milk! Guess we are just big coconuts in my house!

    • Hi Kylie! I love the big coconuts in your house! Yes, the benefits of coconut oil are far-reaching. Diet, skin, hair … all of it. Thank you for the comments and support. xx Mel

  2. Piña Colada sounds perfect right now!! I have used jojoba oil on my skin and like its effects. I love the glow it leaves! Looking forward to reading the results that you observe with coconut oil. : )
