Coo Coo For Coconut Oil
Coo Coo For Coconut Oil
With coconut oil becoming a huge buzz word in recent months and celebs like Rihanna, Heidi Klum and Jessica Alba professing their love for the craze, I wondered how many people actually knew what the holistic trend was all about. A self-proclaimed coconut oil addict myself, I decided to outline all the uses for this magical and oh so delicious oil so you can hit em’ the knowledge when the topic comes up!
Before you run out to buy the biggest bottle of coconut oil you can find, we have to back track and look at what makes coconut oil so effective! In simple turns, coconut oil is processed differently by our bodies. Since coconut oil is made up of a large number of medium fatty acids, (I know it sounds complex, but just go with it…) it makes it easier for our bodies to turn them into sources of energy unlike other oils that are high in long fatty acids! Extra energy? Who wouldn’t want more pep in their step (sans Red Bull)? Long story short: medium fatty acids are better than long fatty acids and coconut oil is rich in medium fatty acids. But enough of the scientific talk, its time for me to spill the beans on the endless uses of coconut oil!
Unlike other beauty crazes, coconut oil actually has a long list of positive health benefits! When used in cooking, coconut oil fights off nasty diseases and keeps you hella healthy since its boosts the immune system and has anti-viral and antibacterial properties! Since the oil heads straight to the digestive tract and can boost metabolism, it can help with weight loss—keeping you fierce and fab! Oh and did I mention its natural, so you can feel good about using it too!
Most assume that coconut oil’s main use is for hydrating the skin and leaving it soft as a baby’s bottom! While this is totally true, the oil also works wonders on imperfections! Acne? No problem! New Mom’s with stretch marks? Coconut oil has got you boo! Since the oil has the ability to seep into the skin, it tackles imperfections like scarring and stretch marks that go deep beyond the surface of the skin! If that’s not a good reason to claim that #CoconutOilIsLife, then I don’t know what is!
Have dirty makeup brushes, need to tame your frizzy locks? Well guess what…coconut oil is your one stop shop. Coconut oil has established itself as beauty essential, covering every end of the spectrum from deep conditioner and lip balm to whitening your pearly whites, it’s every gal’s must-have! The internet is full of coconut oil beauty recipes that won’t break the bank and that will keep you flawless. #GirlsNight #AllCoconutOilErrthing
From cooking to cleaning, primping and prepping and even correcting, it seems like coconut oil is here to stay! With the universal nature of this oil, there is definitely a way to introduce it into your life. And hey, if someone questions whether you actually know about your coconut oil just respond with “medium fatty acids” and they’ll leave you and your coconut oil alone!
