How to treat acne and wrinkles with coconut oil

Because of its antibacterial quality, coconut oil can be used by people suffering from acne. Specifically, lauric acid found in this oil is a powerful antimicrobial which fights bacteria that cause pore infection.

Moreover, people who aren’t experiencing this issue can use it because it contains a significant amount of vitamin E, which moisturizes the skin. Coconut oil can be used both for cleansing and for preventing wrinkles.

Add a drop of castor oil in coconut oil to create a moisturizing hair mask (ideal especially in the summer) that protects your hair from aggressive external agents, such as the sun or pool water.

Coconut oil can be used as a body moisturizer that contains, in addition to vitamin E, a considerable amount of vitamin A. If you mix it with a little brown sugar, you can easily get a scrub that will soften your skin and will help you have a uniform and long lasting tan.
