Coconut Oil for Skin, Hair and Nails

Coconut oil provides moisturizing benefits for the skin, makes for an outstanding hair conditioner and helps strengthen your nails. Coconut oil has become a key ingredient in skin, hair and nail products. Please remember to always use organic, RAW, extra virgin coconut oil as this will make a huge difference in the effects!
Coconut oil contains vitamin E, is rich in antioxidants and its high content of Lauric Acid help revitalize your skin to look softer and younger. It will absorb easily into your skin without feeling greasy. Coconut Oil can be used as face moisturizer, skin lotion, massage oil, after sun cream and protects against against dry and aging skin. Coconut oil helps improve symptoms of skin infections and reduces blemishes and spots. Since coconut oil is suitable for all skin types, it can be safely used on a baby’s skin specifically for diaper rash eliminating the need to worry about chemicals or any harsh ingredients.
My sister, Roxanne DePalma, always says that she does not put anything on her skin that she would not eat. This made perfect sense to me once I started doing yoga and learning that our skin is our largest organ. Why would we put anything on our skin to be absorbed in our body by our largest organ that we would not put in our mouth? When I switched to coconut oil as my daily moisturizer, my skin cleared up feeling softer and smoother. Plus when I run out of coconut oil in my kitchen, I always know I have a back up on my bathroom cabinet!
Coconut oil can help encourage hair growth, reduce hair loss and restore protein loss in dry damaged hair. Massage coconut oil into your scalp as a pre-wash, anti-dandruff treatment or leave in overnight. Just remember to wash out the coconut oil in the morning to leave your hair looking shiny and healthy!
Coconut oil contains important nutrients to help strengthen your cuticles and nails. Moisturizing your hands and feet with coconut oil will aid in roughness and splitting and also help cure cuticle infections and fungal nails.
There is no time like the present, so let’s get started. We encourage you to  rid your bathroom of chemical products and stock up on some qualityorganic, RAW, extra virgin coconut oil today … remember if you cannot eat it, then leave it!
