Farmgirl Beauty Secret #55: Coconut oil as a head-to-toe treatment.

Extra Virgin Coconut Oil smells absolutely decadent- like a richer, creamier version of a freshly cracked coconut! If you are sensitive to synthetic fragrances, wearing this as your daily body moisturizer will not only nourish your skin but also leave your skin with an air-brushed sheen, smelling subtly delicious. My sister uses Extra Virgin Coconut Oil as a cleansing oil and it works wonderfully on her acne-prone skin (This didn't work for me as a cleansing oil though, so your results may vary). Try it on dry hair 20 minutes before you shower. Then, shampoo and condition as usual. It leaves your hair silky soft and stronger against heat damage. Before going to the pool or Jacuzzi, lightly coat dry hair with coconut oil to protect it against chlorine. It’s also a great oil to cook and bake with! Available at most supermarkets in the baking aisle, it usually comes in a large screw-top jar because it’s a solid oil (melts upon contact with body heat).
