A good friend of mine uses coconut oil on her face every night before she goes to bed. She sleeps in it and wakes up with a hydrated and moisturized face.
I've always been a skeptic of this because wouldn't adding oil to your face make it oily, not moisturized?
I was wrong. Don't listen to my skepticism. I tried it last night because this winter air kills my complexion, and it worked wonders! Even after one night!
"The health benefits of coconut oil include hair care, skin care, stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss, increased immunity, proper digestion and metabolism, relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV and cancer, dental care, and bone strength. These benefits of oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and its properties such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial and soothing properties."
