Coconut Oil Benefit #2: Skin Health

Lipids are necessary components of skin and play a crucial role in the skin’s function as a barrier against the external environment. Studies have found that coconut oil in particular, can improve the moisture and lipid content of the skin by providing fatty acids.

It has also been shown that coconut oil is as effective as some sunscreens in blocking the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. Over time, UV light exposure damages the elastin fibers holding skin cells together. As elastin breaks down, the skin loses its youthful strength, causing the skin to sag and stretch.
