Benefits of Coconut Oil On the Skin
I'm always preaching against using coconut oil on your face because of it's super comedogenic properties, and the issue of heavy oil use disturbing the skin's natural moisture barrier (you can read my previous blog post here: "Can Face Oil Replace Moisturizer" if you want to learn more about that).
Let me explain further...
Is Coconut Oil Good For Your Skin?
Well...kind of.... yes and no.
Applying coconut oil straight as is from the jar, is a hard no. But, that does not mean that coconut oil doesn't have beneficial properties that can be extracted and utilized in skincare, and that ALSO does not mean that it's not super awesome for your skin and body when you eat or cook with it. To better explain why, let's look further in depth into the makeup of coconut oil.
