Can coconut oil be used on dry skin?
Coconut oil is fantastic for dry skin. It has amazing hydrating properties that will repair damaged skin and leave you with a healthy glow. It is packed with antioxidants and rich in vitamin E which are all easily absorbed into the skin due to the medium chain fatty acids that give coconut oil such amazing properties.
Applying coconut oil to the skin two times a day can do wonders for dry skin. Or simply put a tablespoon into a hot bath and soak – ahh! Used repeatedly, your skin will be smooth, soft and generally gorgeous.
For problem areas, apply directly onto the skin and leave to fully absorb. Overnight is best.
Because it is all natural, you will not have any of the side effects that you can sometimes get with chemical laden products. Although too much, too soon may overwhelm your skin so build up gradually.
Speak to your dermatologist to discuss how coconut oil can help with your skin complaints before stopping any medication.
