Look Younger Like A Face Lift For Pennies

Updated on October 31, 2010

Who Would Have Thought

Who would have thought that something I bought for my dog, (that’s right my dog) could make me look years younger, help my dog, and my hair. You just never know what your going to find when your not even looking

It started out I was looking for something for my puppy’s dry skin. I have tried everything, which some helped a little but not like I wanted. I was looking online and someone recommended coconut oil. Well I had already tried the lavender oil mixture for fleas, (didn’t work that great) but was willing to give it a shot. Anything that would help my little girl.
So I went to the vitamin store, (would have saved a lot of time and money if I just bought it online) and they had the capsules but not the actual coconut oil that I needed. Went to another store nope, don’t have it, then another, and another. I had just about given up and stopped in Walmart for a few things before I went home and guess what they had it with the cooking oils, (the last place I would have looked) It said it was pure coconut oil so I bought it. See if I had done some more research I would have found out that’s where I should have been looking all along. Felt like a blond moment, (just kidding)

OK So I Tried It Why Not Right

Ok so I got home put stuff away and immediately went to applying the oil, which my dog took to nicely considering usually she hauls butt obviously thinking, “Now what“. When I finished I still had some that I had poured out into a little bowl and said what the heck so I put some on my arms, and it felt good, oily of course but good. After a couple of minutes I figured I would have to wipe the excess off, but I didn’t it had already absorbed into my skin. Wow, that was pretty great so I figured let me try a tiny bit on my face. Now I don’t use but a few products on my face even though as you can see I have bought everything from the most expensive to the cheaper side. Took a picture so you could see for yourself My skin (on my face only) is extremely sensitive and will break out, turn all red, and basically just looks really funky when it doesn’t like new products, (which is almost always). I’m not saying these products don’t work just not for me.

The next morning I got up and went to brush my teeth and could not believe my face. I am over 50, (54 to be exact) and proud of it, but my face due to prolonged sun exposure from the sun shows it (to much beach, horses, etc), I have deep wrinkles along the left side of my jaw line, my forehead, and neck and I mean deep. Normally anything oily and my face starts breaking out immediately, but it didn’t The difference was amazing and I mean amazing, I looked like I had a mini face lift. So back to the computer I went only to find the enormous amount of uses, and benefits, of coconut oil.
So I started trying some and was stunned at how good everything tastes when you cook with it. My eggs tasted better than ever and my grilled cheese that afternoon was excellent, and no butter.

Bet You're wondering If Anybody Noticed

As a matter of fact 3 days after I started using it I went to bingo with my best friend. When she picked me up I got in the car and she noticed immediately stating, “What are you doing to your face you look so rested, younger and glowing?” I told her, she laughed at me of course because I’m always trying something different, and then asked where i got it :-) .
Then when I got to bingo one of the girls said "Wow your hair looks good it’s so shiny", another way to use it, .

I’m telling you if I didn’t think I would fall on my butt and break my other arm or leg I would bath in it. Oh yeah I even lost 3 lbs and I haven’t changed a thing about the way I eat except cooking with it. I guess because it boosts your metabolism that's what I read in my research.  It's also great for people with thyroid issues, again who knew, (surely not me). I wish I would have taken before and after pictures of my face and the dog, oh well,

So long story short, (I know to late now) coconut oil is amazing. It worked wonders for my dog, and me. Actually, all my dogs (3) get it everyday in their food now and they say you can use it on horses, which I’m still looking into that.

Have an incredible day and if your tired of spending mucho dollars on products to make you look younger, (and not just your face) try it you will be amazed at the results for literally pennies a treatment.

Where I Should Have Looked First and I Paid More Especially For the 2 Tubs

Let me know what you think.

      OMG, I LOVE this stuff! I put it in my hair and my face (I'm only 27, but I noticed a tiny very faint line on my forehead, so I figured better safe then sorry! lol) I very recently (today actually) just started cooking with it and I didn't mind the taste, I especially loved it in my yogurt (I use the cold-pressed organic extra virgin kind, so it hardens a little bit when the temp is under 75 degrees) the great thing is, it added a bit of a light crunch to my yogurt and tasted amazing. I will def be indulging in that again lol. Great hub, I'm glad your sharing your benefits with coconut oil with the rest of us. Thanks so much =)

      Coconut oil is one of my favorite as well. And so is Olive and Grape Seed Oil. Are you testing out other oil to see its effectiveness on skin, health and beauty?

      Thanks Peggy for letting us know it works. I have recently started using the organic myself. I find it not as thick and works better not only on me but the dogs. Take care and thanks again.

      Hi Charlu,

      I'm back to report that it truly does work wonders on dry skin. Also from what has been reported, the pure organic coconut oil may even help stave off the onset of Alzheimer's Disease. It is the good kind of fat reputedly. So coconut oil is definitely worth purchasing and using for several reasons! Thanks for drawing my attention to it.
