First of all, it’s cheap! I tried to order a jar that cost $7.99 which got rave reviews but the shipping was. $9.70! So off to Whole Foods to investigate their inventory. For $7.00 I have my coconut oil for my skincare routine. While purchasing I met a devotee who told me he showers with it. My first thought was that I would have to wear shoes so I wouldn’t slip! So I bought a bar of coconut soap to compromise.
My dilemma is how to integrate this miracle into my skincare routine. I may not need body lotion if I use my new oil,my deep hair conditioners can leave, and my night time face moisturizing cream may get replaced because I get all of this for $7.00! Coconut Oil uses are found in over 100 applications. Taking it orally ( 2 tablespoons a day) reduces the craving for sweets. But as I read on, there are 2 sides in this controversy. The advocates and the detractors. Yes it is a saturated fat that can raise cholesterol but the advantages and testimonials are very positive. I will read on but will do so as I’m taking my daily dosage and making it a prime in my skincare routine.
Coconut oil has been around for a very long time but now it’s really catching on. It’s naturally anti bacterial, anti fungal and a fabulous moisturizer. Just rubbing it on dry. cracked hands will really make a difference and the smell is delicious! The best scrub is mixing 2 tablespoons of coconut oil with 1 tablespoon of sugar!! Rub on your skin, wipe off, then rinse. Your skin will feel glorious!! Yes, I’m definitely making room for my jar of coconut oil in my beauty routine.
