Dry Skin and Virgin Coconut Oil: I purchased a jar of this a few days ago and am totally hooked. From the first application (topically) my skin let me know it was finally happy. I've not had supple skin since before puberty but I know I will all the rest of my days. Also using it on my hair for a few hours before shampoo'ng. Even the damaged part (ends) of my hair have shown improvement.
What is the difference between Organic Coconut Oil and Virgin (or extra virgin) Coconut Oil? I use the Organic Coconut Oil for removing my makeup at night. I was told that it cleaned out your pores. It does make my 60 year old complex very soft. I do get compliments on my complexion due to no wrinkles. [EC: We suspect there is no difference, merely a marketing ploy.]
I came across the comment about massaging your feet at night with coconut oil and decided to give it a try, while also using the coconut oil nightly on my face. I noticed straight away on the first morning after doing this that the coconut oil had dried and shrunk the few blemishes I had on my face. It had also left my skin feeling lovely and smooth. The dark circles under my eyes hadn't disappeared but I felt that they were a bit lighter. After the second night of this routine the circles seemed lighter again. On the third evening I was too tired to bother with massaging the oil into my feet, so I just used it on my face- the next morning when I woke up and looked in the mirror those dark circles had almost completely disappeared! Thank you so much for this wonderful site. It's already been more helpful than years worth of expensive creams,lotions and potions filled with nasty chemicals :-) [EC: Nicole is referring to our latest Fountain of Youth remedy, using coconut oil to massage the feet and calves.]
I am trying acv and it has helped my digestion so much. Only been on a week so will keep you updated. Also virgin cocoanut oil has sofentned my sun damaged skin. No wrinkles when I wake up.No greasy skin as the oil sbsorbs into your skin.
I love coconut oil, I sing it's praises to anybody who will listen. I've been using it on and off for a long time, and I love it. However DO NOT PUT IT ON YOUR FACE PEOPLE ! Just eat it, or on the body and hair is great.
Is this real? after one week of using coconut oil on my face my face feels like literal silk. my dandruff problem, which i battled for many years, has abated. i can finally grow my hair -- imagine that! my wife and i are in the process of taking it internally will share more later. thanks a million
I tried using coconut oil for a skin cream, on my body and face, but didn't have the good results most other people have had. I went to bed feeling like a grease ball, and the next day my face started to break out with bumps all over it. So I figured my skin is too senstivie. But I have found that if I rub the oil on my body before I use a sunless tanning spray or foam, streaks and uneven color are prevented from forming. I will rub more on drier areas, such as knee caps and tops of feet, and this helps with those areas becoming too dark. Just takes a while longer to dry.
This is more of a beauty experience. I am a college students and once in a while, I ran out of money to buy expensive face cream, so i tried this extra virgin coconut oil that i bought ages ago (for my hair)...on my face. and WOW...my skin was glowing. i have oily/ acne prone skin but it doesnt irritate me. infact, i've cut down the expenses such as face cream, toner, hair mask, makeup remover, body lotion, foot lotion, hand cream etc. WOW!...thats a lot of saving..with just one jar of coconut oil!
I tried coconut oil on my face for winter dryness because I also have acne. It does moisturize but it also for me caused more breakouts and made me oilier. Honey works much better for me (I rinse it off after a few minutes) I do use coconut oil on my daughter's sensitive skin for general moisturizing and it is effective even for deep moisturizing.
I have been using topical prescription acne meds for 2 years and have done pretty well. This winter I have had a terrible time with dry skin and acne. I have tried exfoliators and lots of moisturizer to relieve the dry skin flakes and have seen no improvement. Just more pimples and flakes. One morning I woke up with a large rash on my neck where I had used an exfoliator. That night I started using coconut oil on my face and neck. (not virgin, Spectrum brand refined) My neck looked much better the next day and I did not wake up with any new pimples which I was very surprised. It was scary putting something so oily on my face! My large pimples under my neck went away in 3 days. My flaky skin was gone in one day. My skin looks great, soon I will try the virgin coconut oil for my face and to include in my diet. This is the first time I have ever been able to say that something natural and possibly a fad REALLY worked for me.
Coconut oil gave me nothing but red skin and a billion tiny little whiteheads.
I have heard from my uncle, who recently started using coconut oil, all the benefits. He mentioned it can be used on the face and body as a moisturizer and acne treatment, sun screen, helps prevent wrinkles, removes sun spots and warts, and helps with weight loss when ingested. I had flat warts on my face, and have been using coconut oil on my face and ingesting it two to three times a day for about a month. The warts are gone, but my face, chest, and back have horribly broken out. I can't think of it being from anything but the coconut oil. I also have been eating three tablespoons a day for a month for weight loss, and have currently not lost any weight. I wanted some advice as to if I am doing something wrong, or if my body just doesn't react well to this remedy.
Organic Unrefined coconut oil cleared my face of blemishes and marks. I started breaking out on my face a couple months ago and I didn't know what to do. I tried everything. Then my dad told me about coconut oil and the health benefits it has. I did alot of research for it and it seemed like a good skin remedy. I decided to try it. I noticed a HUGE difference the next day. It has cleared my skin incredibly. It has made my skin soft and glowing just like it had been before. Coconut oil has also made me more energetic and even healthier. IT IS AN AMAZING MIRACLE CURE!!
I suffered from acne, tried most products in the shelf but nothing seemed to work. A friend told me about coconut oil which l have been using for the last five months all the acne cleared and the marks are clearing gradually. It is a miracle cure!
i'm trying coconut oil for dark spots left from face blemishes. it seems to be helping - about how long do you think it will take for the spots to lighten up? I also take 6tsps of the coconut oil daily.
