Benefits of Using Coconut Oil for the Face
- 1Coconut 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 acts as an organic sunscreen.Advertisement
- 2It feels good to apply because it is very smooth to lather through the body because of its overall fine consistency.It spreads easily and evenly on the skin.Advertisement
- 3It 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.It hydrates the skin much better than cosmetic moisturizers.
- 4It address some of the most common skin problems like:
- Mosquito bites. It helps relieve the itchiness and also soothe the bruise that you might have developed out of scratching it.
- Bruises. It helps bruises heal quickly. You just need to apply it directly on the affected area and you will notice after a few minutes that blood has completely clot. Also, it helps avoid ugly scars and marks once the bruises have completely healed.
- Flaky skin. If you are suffering from eczema or other conditions in which your skin becomes flaky, applying a small amount of coconut oil will immediately solve it.
Things You'll Need

Tips & Warnings
- 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.
- 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.
