From removing your makeup to increasing your metabolism, there are just endless benefits of coconut oil.
I’ve discovered the coconut oil just in the last year and until this day I still keep hearing more and more of the benefits of coconut oil that just keep surprising me all the time, keep reading and maybe you’ll be surprised too.
Increase Your Metabolism
Studies have shown that the fatty acids in Coconut oil are quickly absorbed and can actually increase the number of calories that your body burn.
Improve Your Teeth
Coconut oil can be a lifesaver for your dental health, it fights bacteria, dental plaque, tooth decay, and gum disease.
Oil pulling is the best way to get this benefit out of the coconut oil, by doing it daily you significantly reduce inflammation and plaque.
Relieve Skin Irritations And Eczema
Coconut oil helps with dermatitis and other skin disorders.
In a study in children with eczema, 47% of those treated with coconut oil noticed major improvements.
Moisture For Your Skin
Coconut oil is great for skin moisturizing, you can use it for your face also, but it’s not recommended with oily skin.
Personally, I like putting a bit of coconut oil in my body lotion which makes it a lot more moisturizing, smoother and fast-absorbing.
Do you want shiny, smooth, long, and soft hair? Well, use coconut oil then.
Women in tropical regions use this oil for their hair almost daily, it helps to grow your hair and gives a shine to your strands.
By regularly massaging your head with it, you can ensure that your scalp is dandruff free.
Increase Good Cholesterol
Coconut oil helps to increase the levels of good cholesterol that aids in improving heart health.
Coconut oil for aromatherapy is very soothing and helps improve stress. Applying it to the head, followed by a gentle massage, helps eliminate mental fatigue.
Coconut oil improves the ability of your body to absorb the important minerals it needs, this includes calcium and magnesium, which are necessary for the development of bonds.
coconut oil is a gentle yet effective makeup remover, especially for your eyes, as it’s important not to use any harsh chemicals on your eyelids or aggressive rubbing of them.
Apply with a cotton pad and wipe the makeup off gently.
There are a lot more benefits for coconut oil that will surprise you too, so much that I can’t even list them all here. My advice is to always use organic coconut oil, it’s the healthiest one.
Also, I advise substituting the oils that you cook within coconut oil, from my own experience it really does help with your health, mood, weight loss and a lot more and trust me the coconut oil tastes a lot better them any other oils there is.
