8 Beauty Benefits Of Coconut Oil: {Hair, Skin & Nails}

It might be time to put away all those expensive potions and lotions after trying coconut oil in your daily beauty regimen. It’s loaded with Vitamin E and fatty acids (such as lauric acid, myristic acid, capric acid and more) which are anti-fungal, anti-oxidizing and anti-bacterial, just the sort of stuff that our body happily responds to!

Shiny HairIt can be used as an all-over moisturizer (with excellent results, apply right after showering and throughout the day), but here are eight different ways to take advantage of its natural goodness and treat problem areas.

I also added tips at the bottom of the page outlining what to look for when buying it and where to find it (locally and online).

For Dry & Damaged Hair:

Glossy, Shiny Locks & Frizz Buster:

Exfoliating Facial Scrub:

Dark Elbow Patches:

Dry Scalp:

Each night before going to bed, follow these steps:

Rashes, Eczema, Psoriasis or Severe Dryness:

Acne:

Note: Some may experience an increase in oily skin and breakouts, this can be the case for several days (even a week or two) until the skin is detoxified.

Athlete’s Foot & Nail Fungus:

It’s A Food Too!

Yes, this can be eaten too! Try it in cooking, in baking (replacing lard and fat) and as a spread (like butter).

Is it a super food? Metabolism booster? Diet miracle? I’m not ruling it out but there’s no definitive answer to that just yet (that I know of). Here are two resources to review to help form your own opinion: doctoroz.com [3], video series by Dr. Oz (two parts, there’s a link under the first video to watch the next part). Also check out this article on The Guardian which lists some pros and cons: Coco Loco [4].
