For many years, oils have been a staple not just for cooking but also for hair & skin. Today we want to talk about the benefits of oils, specifically cold-pressed coconut oil on your skin.
What does oil do to your skin?
Oils are really beneficial to your skin and hair. They work for all skin types in different ways and consistencies. Oils can also assist in healing and improve skin texture & soothe the skin that has been damaged.
It may sound wrong when we say oils work for all skin types. One might think “but what about oily skin?” – truth is that oils are great cleansers for oily skin types as they can help to melt out the excess oils from your skin.
What are the benefits of using cold-pressed coconut oil?
Coconut oil is believed to be the holy grail of most oils by many skin experts. Cold-pressed coconut oil is made from the flesh of the mature coconut. The coconut flesh is then extracted in a press. Coconut oil is high in healthy saturated fats that have different effects on most other fats in your diet. The medium-chain triglycerides in coconut oil are known to burn calories faster.
The fatty acids in the oil can kill harmful pathogens, including viruses and fungi, which could potentially help prevent infections. Apart from being healthful, it is known to be good for skincare and haircare.
