Good information. I agree and use coconut oil everyday as a moisturizer, especially on my face. I've used it for about a year or two now and I have noticed less wrinkles and fine lines. My skin also feels very smooth and healthy. I really like the results and will never go back to store-bought skin moisturizers, ever.

I've also used almond oil periodically and really like it as well. I do not use it on my face but as a body moisturizer. It really makes your skin shiny and healthy looking and is great for "summer skin".

Thanks for sharing this info.

Thank you MysticMoonlight. I totally agree, coconut oil is good for the hair as well. Just rub coconut oil in your hair prior to shampooing for 5 to 10 min and then continue as usual with shampoo. I do not use conditioner if I use the coconut oil treatment.

Seeing the harmful effects of mineral and petroleum oil I have switched to using coconut oil. Know what, I never bother applying another batch of oil on my skin. It never feels dry on me, which is good! I believe we should feed our skin too. Thanks for posting other suggestions. Voted up and useful. :)
