Coconut oil is one versatile natural product that is believed to be good for skin and hair. Many commercial moisturizers and skin care products are water-based.Once applied, the water is absorbed by the tissues beneath the skin. This water inflates the tissues, filling up the wrinkles which makes the skin smoother and wrinkle-free for a short span of time.
As water gets absorbed in the blood, skin looks dry and wrinkles reappear. Almost all skin products contain some highly refined vegetable oil for skin repair. But these oils do not contain natural antioxidants, that enable the skin to fight wrinkles and aging. Hence, most of the commercial skin care products can give you temporary skin care satisfaction.
It is observed that a free radical attack can lead to a chain of such reactions and therefore the skin loses its smoothness and develops wrinkles. This can be countered with the help of antioxidants, which can stop the chain reaction caused. The body must get sufficient antioxidants from the diet as refined vegetable oils do not contain natural antioxidants.
