Go cuckoo for coconuts this summer by using it to boost your skin and hair health! Coconut oil, once considered a demon in the health world, is now fully recognized as a health booster, a skin toner, and a hair moisturizer. It's been used, after all, in Asian and Pacific cultures for centuries-and look how gorgeous their skinand hair is!

Here's how coconut oil can help give life to dull skin and limpless locks:

1. Coconut oil can be rubbed all over your body to combat wrinkles, skin discoloration, and the effects of sun damage and aging. In fact, because of the lipid barrier (a layer of fat) that it provides over your skin, it locks in moisture and blocks some of the sun's damaging rays.

2. Massage coconut oil into your scalp to revive limp hair and to free the scalp of microbes that may harm your roots. Either use the oil as is, or turn it into a paste by heating up a small bowl of the oil in a larger bowl of boiling water for ten minutes. Leave this coconut mask on your hair for at least an hour and then shampoo. Try this rejuvenating treatment overnight and you'll wake up with shiny locks that smell fantastic!

3. Use coconut oil as a sweet smelling moisturizer.

4. Stress is a leading cause of wrinkles, acne, eczema, and other skin conditions, and lucky for you, you can reduce stress simply with coconut oil. Apply coconut oil with your fingers to your temples and massage in little circles. The calming smell of coconut oil can do wonders to your stress levels and your skin.

5. Repair your skin with coconut oil. It can reduce the appearance of cuts and bruises by blocking out bacteria, dirt, and viruses.

6. Last, coconut oil is known to stimulate metabolic functions and aid digestion. So if you take a spoonful or two of this aromatic oil each day, you can actually lose weight. In fact, the "Coconut Diet" gains more and more popularity each day as a valid and effective way to improve health and stay fit.
