Virgin coconut oil is gaining popularity as one of the healthiest oil. It has many medicinal properties including antibacterial--good for killing bacteria that causes acne--and skin moisturizing--because it contains a lot of fatty acids. It also replenishes the skin's natural oils that were stripped off by harsh commercial skin products.
Virgin coconut oil is not only good for the skin but a healthy, natural solution for problems in other parts of the body: hair and scalp, yeast infection, sun protection and even underarm deodorant. Other people also find that it helps in weight control, diabetes, thyroid problems, digestive problems and other viral infections. Truly a miracle oil.
But be sure to use only virgin (or extra virgin), raw, unrefined and cold-pressed coconut oil to ensure it's effectiveness. It's also better if you can get the organic variety. The more natural, the better. And don't heat or microwave your virgin coconut oil as heat destroys it's curative properties.
