Benefits of Using Coconut Oil for the Face

  1. 1
    It acts as an organic sunscreen.
    Coconut oil has the ability to function like a sunscreen. It helps repel the harmful rays of the sun. Dabbing a very thin layer of coconut oil on your face and body before going to the beach can help a lot in preventing extreme sunburn.

    It hydrates the skin much better than cosmetic moisturizers.
    It is able to penetrate deep into the different layers of skin and keep the existing moisture for a long time. It helps the moisture in the body to stay and not evaporate quickly. It is good to apply coconut oil while the skin is still damp because it will be able to retain the water that is already on your skin.

  2. 2
    Cool the ingredients and pour the melted oil into your blender.
    It usually takes an hour and a half to process the cooling of the melted ingredients. If you do not let it cool, prepare to see disarrayed ingredients.

Tips

  • Make sure to remove debris from the lower part of the blender, or it could build up and cause your blender to not mix the ingredients properly.
  • To distribute the ingredients thoroughly, be sure to mix it deliberately slowly.
  • The Aloe Vera gel must heated congruently with the other oils, and a 10 second microwave heating should do just fine.
  • Additionally, mix the ingredients again with an egg beater, to procure a beautiful cream, at least if it appears gooey or inappropriate for use around your eyes.
  • In case you do not have any beeswax available you can opt for carnauba, a soy wax or emulsion, to replace the missing beeswax.

Warnings

  • Always take into consideration asking a medical expert before making and applying this solution.
  • Bear in mind that everything expires, so if you feel like it begins to look or smell weird, discontinue its use.
  • As soon as you see some adverse reactions on your skin, discontinue use right away.
  • Avoid applying coconut oil near the eyes as that may clog your tear glands and cause dry eyes. Dry eyes occur when the tear ducts in your eyes become unable to produce natural tears. It is a very bothering condition and may even lead to more serious irritations.
  • If you have problems with any of these steps, ask a question for more help, or post in the comments section below.
