Why Coconut Oil Is Essential This Summer?!

Last summer, I found a deep love for Coconut Oil. I never realized how much I would love it. Let me tell you a little story…

I bought my dad tickets for a Yankees Vs. Boston game at Fenway…. (I’m a yankee fan btw!) for his birthday. It was the first week in September so I figured the weather would be about 70….. Little to our surprise it was about 92 degrees. I forgot to bring sunscreen and we were sitting in center field with direct sunlight.

Anyone who knows me, will tell you I burn… I don’t ever get a nice tan… I turn lobster red. Hahah So I thought for sure I was going home a cooked lobster. On the bus ride home, I realized I hardly got any sun…. Which was impossible because it was Hot and Sunny all day. That’s when I realized…. The coconut oil I was using as a moisturizer…. Protected my skin. I woke up the next morning with a little tan coloring.

It was a MIRACLE!!!

Here are 3 Reasons Why You Must Use Coconut Oil:

  1. Most studies have shown that it has a 2-8 spf… depending on how strong the oil is.
  2. It moisturizes your skin…. helping to prevent wrinkles.
  3. It will give your skin a beautiful glow…. that people won’t stop talking about 😉

I do have to warn you… many people can NOT wear this on their face….. It often clogs pores and causes unwanted pimples. I have experienced acne on my face from it.

Every single day, I put a couple pumps of this miracle oil on my arms, chest, and legs. Not only does it make your skin feel soft, but also protects you from the sun!
