One of My BEST Beauty Secrets!!!!

 This is one of my best beauty secrets and although it's not the only one it's my favorite...  100 percent Certified Organic Pure Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and it's not for what you think it's for even though it's great to cook with (it can withstand a high heat when cooking)..... I use Coconut Oil twice daily as a facial and body moisturizer.  Not only is it inexpensive but it's ultra moisturizing, protects against free radical damage, is loaded with antioxidants and is petroleum and paraben  free ( I don't use anything on my skin that has parabens because I feel like what you put on your skin you are putting into your body).  I have super sensitive skin and I DO NOT break out from Coconut Oil.  It is also antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial if you eat a tablespoon a day - it's not the easiest thing to eat but it is great for you and I try to do it everyday. The other thing that makes me obsessed with Coconut Oil ( my friend Shayna told me about this and I love her for it ) is that it can be used as a sunscreen and protects from any UV damaging rays ( Don't tell my dermatologist I said that but it's true).  I went through a rebellious stage this summer and laid out with coconut oil and not only did I get a beautiful tan but I didn't burn!!! ( But if you decide to try this do it at your own discretion as everyones skin type is different- i also still wore sunblock on my chest... It was amazing. So this for sure makes the best list.... It's by far one of my BEST beauty secrets and I think you will love it.  Don't be scared by how thick the oil is in the jar just rub a little in your hands and it will melt down to a nice oil that smells amazing.  This is great for men, women and dogs (mine love to eat it) and that's why I think it's the best!!!!
