7 Reasons You Should Be Using Coconut Oil On Your Skin

The Western World is usually the most progressive in terms of technology, social standards and even health care, but sometimes, progressive isn’t always better. Sometimes, it’s best to revert back to nature and the age-old secrets it possesses. One such secret is coconut oil.

Society has recently discovered the benefits of coconut oil and now it’s obsessed—as well it should be. Coconut oil contains natural soothing and antibacterial properties that moisturize the skin, reverse sun damage and even minimize the signs of aging. For all these reasons and more, individuals are beginning to implement coconut oil-based products into their facial care regime. Here are just seven reasons why you should follow suit:

1.  Remove Makeup the Natural Way

Coconut oil is an all-natural grease cutter and cuts through grease better than any commercial anti-grease product. If you struggle to take off ALL traces of your makeup with store-bought makeup removers and face creams, invest in a two-in-one face cream and makeup remover that contains this powerful ingredient.

2.  Fight Acne

Coconut oil contains antibacterial properties that protect the skin from acne-causing pathogens. Not only does the oil help to prevent acne, but also, it helps fight existing acne by keeping present pathogens under control.

3.  Moisturize Your Skin

Coconut oil is inarguably the best moisturizer out there, which is why you should purchase a body lotion and face cream that contains this wonder ingredient. The oil penetrates deep into the skin for long-lasting moisture. Best of all, it doesn’t leave a greasy, sticky feeling on your skin like commercial moisturizers generally do.

4.  Deep Clean Your Skin

From makeup to air pollution to dust, your face is exposed to more harmful toxins on a daily basis than any other part of your body. Give your facial skin the deep clean it deserves by applying a coconut mask to your face. Use some of the Cocoili face cream mixed with almond flour and apply to your face in gentle, circular motions. Allow to sit for 10 to 15 minutes before wiping it away to reveal vibrant, more youthful looking skin.

5.  Protect From Sunburn

Standard sunscreens contain inorganic ingredients that result in bacteria build up and clogged pores. Though coconut oil won’t keep you safe during a day of sunbathing, it can protect your face from brief exposures to the sun throughout the day. Just apply a bit before putting on your makeup to enjoy natural, oil-free and effective sun protection.

6.  Reduce Facial Wrinkles

Studies show that coconut oil penetrates deep into the skin and attracts protein molecules, which are necessary to repair collagen. When you use a face cream with a coconut oil foundation, you can prevent future wrinkles and reduce existing ones.

​7.​  Prevent Premature Aging

​From the sun’s harmful UV rays to environmental pollution, your skin is exposed to a number of damaging factors on a daily basis. These environmental exposures put your skin under oxidative stress, which is responsible for premature aging. You can prevent premature aging by applying a thin layer of coconut oil to your face before heading out of the house for the day. This thin layer will act as a barrier to pollutants and seal in natural moisture for a damage-minimizing effect.

If you have yet to discover the benefits of coconut oil, it’s time to change that. Order your Cocoili body lotion and face cream today to start reaping the benefits of this wonder ingredient tomorrow.
