Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil is not only a natural antibacterial agent, but serves as an excellent moisturizer.  I use it straight, as an emollient at night, lightly rubbing it on my hands (especially around the nail cuticles), face (avoiding near the eyes), elbows, knees…just before bed.  Skin readily absorbs this medium chain fat, and once absorbed into your bloodstream, can actually help lower bad cholesterol as well as aid in providing ketones as energy to your brain cells, thus helping to fight forgetfulness.  I am not a doctor, but what makes you smell like a ‘day at the beach’ can’t be all bad…plus I have great skin!
