Coconut Oil For Dry Skin

Dry skin:

For dry skin, you can apply coconut oil all over. Then stand in a steamy shower for a few minutes (without the water splashing on you). Rinse off in warm (not hot) water, using a light touch of soap if necessary. Most of the oil will have absorbed into your skin by now, so you may not need to use any soap at all.

The less soap you use on your skin, the better. Our skin is designed to have a natural layer of oils on it which help protect the skin, as well as help facilitate the production of vitamin D when exposed to sunlight.

Coconut oil makes a great massage oil for the skin:

Pure coconut oil is the best massage oil! I know a number of massage therapists who prefer using coconut oil, not only for its delightful feeling on the skin, but also because it does not go rancid the way other oils do at room temperature.

Coconut Oil For Problem Skin
Acne:

Pure, raw, virgin coconut oil is safe to use as a facial moisturizer, even when there is acne present. It does not clog pores. When used topically, in addition to following the diet guidelines, it can help alleviate severe acne symptoms.

Coconut Oil For Skin Fungus Infections
Cradle cap, diaper rash, and sebhorreic dermatitis:

The anti-fungal properties of raw coconut oil make it a good choice of topical remedy for these fungal skin infections. Use pure, unrefined, virgin coconut oil topically, applied as often as you wish, to relieve and help cure fungal skin infections. Of course, following the diet outlined above is an integral part of the cure as well.

Rosacea:

People with rosacea have reported improvements when using pure virgin coconut oil topically, in addition to eating according to the diet guidelines (link above).

Warts:

Coconut oil has been used effectively in the treatment of warts, by applying it to a band-aid each day and keeping the wart covered for a few weeks. You can add turmeric to the coconut oil as well, or a drop of pine or clove oil. The anti-viral properties of the coconut oil  (make sure t's pure, unrefined, virgin coconut oil) penetrate the wart and it eventually disappears.
