When it comes to anti-aging creams, it looks that people will try anything to look younger. The latest one I've heard about is "snail slime". Boy, I'm a big believer in staying away from chemical-ridden, anti-aging lotions but this is taking things a little too far. Still, I guess snails do not have much in the way of wrinkles so there might be something in it!
For myself though, I'm not all that keen on smeering my face with slimy snail entrails. I much prefer the lovely smell and feel of pure Virgin Coconut Oil. The most important reason though is the fact that Virgin Coconut Oil is high in antioxidants that fight against the formation of free radicals ……. those nasty things we all hear about but do not really know what they do.
Put simply, free radial break down your skin's connectives tissues. The skin therefore loses its elasticity and signs of aging appear in the form of wrinkles. So, the trick is to keep the formation of free radicals down to a minimum! How do you do this? The answer is antioxidants.
The problem with a lot of conventional body care products is that they are made using refined vegetable oils. "Refined" is often a fancy name for the application of chemicals that have the effect ofstripping out all the naturally-occurring antioxidants in these oils. This means that the natural antioxidant protection against the formation of free-radicals is destroyed!
No so with pure Virgin Coconut Oil. This unrefined oil is extremely high in antioxidants that penetrate deep into the underlying tissues of your skin to prevent and protect against the formation of free radicals. This is the primary reason why this oil is considered as the best natural ingredient lotion for the skin.
Virgin Coconut Oil will also soften and moisturize your skin, as well as act as an exfoliant in removing the outer layer of dead skin cells. This beautiful, all-natural oil has been found to: –
Prevent premature aging of the skin.
Heal and repair damaged skin tissue.
Help bring back a youthful appearance.
Assist in the prevention of liver spots and other blemishes caused by aging and over exposure to sunlight.
Strengthen the body's immune system.
Aid in digestion.
Help protect against degenerative disease, arthritis, heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
Promote weight loss.
If you want your skin looking smoother, younger and more often textured, the first step is to stop slapping chemicals on your body. Artificial chemicals, preservatives and colorings will damage your skin in the long run. The second step is to use the best natural ingredient for your skin – in other words, pure Virgin Coconut.
