In this era of cosmetology, everything is full of chemicals, giving immediate results, vanishing those ugly looking scars, those pregnancy laurels named as the stretch-marks, literally from anything to everything is possible with the cosmetics nowadays, but you never know, whether the effects are temporary or permanent, and chemicals are not skin-friendly always!

Let’s not beat around the bush anymore. The one natural miraculous ingredient which is the solution to almost every skin problem is ‘Coconut Oil’!

It is allergy-free, all natural, chemical-free, and also cost-effective. Though you will see a huge variety in the coconut oil price, as every brand has to maintain its ‘status’ by keeping the price higher than the others.

For Indians, a trusted brand of coconut oil is very much affordable, you don’t need to spend a huge sum of money on that.

So here is a list of wonders that our very own coconut oil can do:

1. Amazing Moisturizer

It’s the best moisturizer for your body, it provides the proper hydration needed, also it doesn’t stick to the skin like a typical ‘oil’. In summers, you can use it by mixing it up with the Baby Oil. The proportion depends upon your skin type, but 1:1 is the safe bet, that is half part baby oil and half part coconut oil.

In winters, as your skin tends to become dry and lose more moisture, the coconut oil alone will do.

2. Best for Marks/Blemishes/Uneven Skin Tone

Each one of us has some marks, blemishes, and uneven skin tone on our bodies. If you don’t have such skin issues, then you must thank your stars and mom for it.

For the rest of us, coconut oil is to the rescue. Use it every day in the problem area and leave it like that. You can also make the ‘wonder body scrub’ at home for more faster and effective results.

3. For Lustrous Shiny Black Hair

Have you seen the south Indian girls, they are famous for their long, black, shiny locks. The reason behind that is again ‘Coconut Oil’. They use coconut a lot in their everyday life, in their chutneys, and sweets, to cook the meals, to stir-fry, and apply to the body and hair as well. So the result is in front of us, not to forget that it’s effective in treating dandruff as well, so it’s a win-win.
