A simple coconut oil can solve all the complex skin issues

As we all know coconut is absolutely our best buddy when it comes to liver problems (coconut water), or hair problems (coconut oil). But as many might not be aware of that coconut oil has a lot to contribute if you want to accomplish a glow skin. Coconut oil has multiple positive effects in the human body. It is plenty with lauric acid, which is known as a healthier saturated fat. This fat when it enters our body gets converted into monolaurin which in turn works effectively to kill fungus, bacteria and viruses. It also helps us to get rid of the fatty acids in our system. Virgin coconut oil, especially, helps in achieving the desired result. Now, you can directly buy virgin coconut oil from a shop as a product or you can make it yourself. How exciting is that!  

Preparation time: 20-30 minutes

How to do it:

  • Put to rest a bowl of coconut milk after squashing out of 5 coconuts, overnight, then flick through the coconut cream in the top layer.
  • Keep the flame at a high temperature, and place a non-stick pan over the gas.
  • Keep the coconut cream into a fry pan and stir it for around 30-40 minutes until the coconut turns into brown, then pour it in a glass through a strainer. Five coconuts can produce an estimated 300 ml of coconut oil, which is a decent amount for everyday purposes. 
  • Let it dry down before you go further to put it into a bottle
  • You can blend a couple of tablespoons of coconut oil with some extracted fresh lemon juice. This mixture is a great remedy for getting fairer skin. You may use a cotton ball to smear it all over the face and neck area in order to lighten it.
