Coconuts are packed with protein, vitamin E, & fatty acids that can be easily absorbed into the skin. The uses for it are infinite. You can use it as a body & hair moisturizer, lip balm, cuticle softener, makeup remover, etc. (seriously, the list goes on & on).
The coconut oil I use comes in solid form, & I like to apply it as a body moisturizer. Right after I get out of the shower, I take a quarter-sized amount & rub it in my palms to get it into a softer form. Then, I just apply it all over.
