The matter is that coconut or more exactly its derivatives, such as oil, water and milk have great nourishing and moisturizing properties for skin and hair, due to which coconut is so widely used in various beauty remedies set for face, hair and body care.
- Apply the mixture of coconut oil, olive oil and lemon juice to wet hair, and cover it with towel for a half an hour, then rinse your hair with warm water and wash with your mild shampoo.
- Mix 50g of solid coconut oil, 2 spoonsful of macadamia oil with several drops of lemon, lime and orange essential oils and add 60g of brown sugar. Massage the derived mixture into damp skin paying special attention to knees and elbows. And then wash off with warm water.
But don’t get carried away, as skincare containing high amount of coconut oil tends to clog pores that can lead to breakouts. Though, as usual everything is good in moderation.
Besides coconut is a key component of a great number of efficient diet plans due to its high saturated fat content. Moreover coconut oil as well as coconut milk contains the highest saturated fat level.
Saturated fat is the most stable of all the natural fats and is therefore best for cooking with, as it doesn’t oxidise when heated,
says nutritionist Zoe Harcombe.
Although coconut is rich in saturated fats, the latest scientific researches have shown that coconut oil is helpful in reducing abdominal obesity. And Miranda Kerr is the best confirmation to it, claiming that it is coconut oil that helps her to get rid of her baby weight. According to Miranda, just 4 tablespoons of coconut oil per day were enough to get her pre-pregnancy body back.
