I started using virgin coconut oil (VCO) several years ago and now can’t believe I ever lived without it.
I’m particular about the products I use which is why I refuse to buy commercial sunscreens or moisturizers as they’re full of toxic ingredients. Instead, during the day I use coconut oil on my face as a light moisturizer.
At night after my shower I apply it all over my body, and for my face and feet I use a mixture of equal parts VCO, castor oil and olive oil.
I’ve heard that coconut oil has a remarkable ability to heal the skin and shield it from the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays. On those rare occasions I get a sunburn I apply coconut oil or calendula cream to the red spots.
By the way, I’ve been told many times I have great skin. I don’t know if it’s because of what I do or just luck.
