I believe all of us have used coconut oil in food or as a moisturizer. Surprisingly coconut oil has even more ways to use it. We listed couple of different ways to use this magical, antibacterial and deliciously scented nourishing oil.
Claimed to treat toenail fungus.
If you are suffering toenail fungus you are probably aware how hard it is to get rid of it, so I would give coconut oil a try. Coconut oil is known for antibacterial as well as antifungal properties. The antifungal acids found in coconut oil are what make it an effective way to treat nail infections.
Directions for applying:
Cleanse and dry affected area. Apply the oil to the toes and massage into the nail, nail bed, and surrounding skin. Repeat this process twice a day until your nails have cleared up. Try it yourself and let us know if it worked!
Treatment for Keratosis Pilaris
Keratosis Pilaris is characterized by uneven little bumps and lumps on the upper part of the arms, thighs, legs, and buttocks as well as the cheeks. Keratosis pilaris is caused by a buildup of keratin, the protein that protects skin from infections and other harmful things. The Lauric acid properties in coconut oil happen to be the primary reason the oil is able to obstruct the hair follicles, thereby preventing the development of little uneven bulges. In addition, the oil boasts a wealth of antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that combine to reduce the effects brought by Keratosis Pilaris.
Treat/ Prevent stretch marks
Sudden stretching of your skin will make stretch marks to appear. Since the scarring is a bit deeper, no cream is going to heal the issue completely. You can prevent stretch marks by gently rubbing coconut oil on them twice a day. It is a safe remedy for stretch marks to use during pregnancy. In fact, the use of coconut oil will help soothe, heal, moisturize, and clarify your skin during pregnancy.
Virgin coconut oil has a natural cooling effect that is considered helpful on treating burns. Applying coconut oil on burns, increases the blood flow around the affected area. Injuries due to burns will heal faster if there is a constant flow of blood and nutrients.
Nourish skin and hair
Coconut oil is a nourishing moisturizer for all skin types and hair. Just rub it on your skin after a shower as a normal cream. You can use coconut oil on your hair as a conditioner or a mask. Coconut oil stimulates healthy hair growth and leaves it shiny and strong.
