|When using coconut oil as a moisturizer, look for one with all of these characteristics|
I have been noticing that my faithful moisturizer has not been adding enough hydration to my skin.
Julia, from Agape Skin Care in Katy, TX suggested that I try coconut oil. When I told her I had tried it and didn't like it, she said I needed to look for Organic, Virgin, Cold Pressed and Unrefined Coconut Oil.
I doubted I would be able to find one without going to a specialty market, but I found this one on the shelf of my local grocery store.
It is SO much different than the other type of coconut oil I've tried.
Before I used it, I transferred a small amount of coconut oil out of this jar and into a travel container.
Coconut oil solidifies when cool, but will turn to oil with the touch of your fingers.
I normally do not like the feel of oil, but this one is feels great to me.
I have been applying it nightly for over a month now and I am really happy with the results.
(I still am using other moisturizers during the day - not sure why, but I am a creature of habit.)
Unfortunately, it does not seem to hydrate my hands or lips enough.
I did crave an Almond Joy the first few times I used it!
If you are a fan of DIY treatments or want to try something new, I encourage you to give Organic, Virgin, Cold Pressed and Unrefined Coconut Oil a try!
I'd love to hear about your coconut oil beauty tips!
