I Love Coconut Oil!
I have such extremely dry skin which has just gotten so much worse since being sick and having IBS. I literally go through buckets of this stuff I love it! My number one use for it is after the shower or pool I completely lather myself in this super hydrating oil – it makes my skin feel amazing!!
Please note : That just because there are uses for it doesn’t mean it would 100% work for you. Everyone is different.
But I must say..
I love this stuff!
I have heard the best one to buy is Organic cold pressed virgin Coconut Oil but I am sure specific ones would be better for certain things so just do your research but this one is a good over all one!
Recent studies have shown that Coconut Oil offers lots of different health benefits and is good for lots of different reasons..
