Coconut Oil

When it comes to beauty benefits, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more power-packed option than virgin coconut oil (VCO). That’s because the coconut’s unique chemical compounds allow it to improve a whole slew of skin issues:

Moisture: It has been proven to protect the skin barrier, which locks in moisture and allows the skin to fully hydrate.

Acne: Monolaurin, a derivative of the coconut’s Lauric Acid, removes bacteria without stripping away skin’s moisture.

Anti-Aging: It helps the repair itself, by showering it with nourishing fatty acids. (In studies, it’s even been shown stimulate collagen production!)

Anti-Inflammatory: Since VCO is a saturated oil, it spurs the skin to create cell hormones that reduce inflammation, one of the biggest causes of aging.
