Common Questions and Answers about Coconut oil skin reviews


Avatar m tn The relationship between coconut oil (or any type of coconut fat, including coconut milk and cream) and how it can affect your body fat. A 2009 study published in the Journal Lipids consisted of testing the effects of either 2 tablespoons of coconut oil or 2 tablespoons of soybean on a group of 40 women over the span of 28 days. Results showed that the group that ate the coconut oil had a decrease in abdominal fat, while the soybean oil group actually showed a slight increase in belly fat.
8101930 tn?1420005056 Vit E I've heard works well, coconut oil, I've not heard of the apricot oil but might have to try it since it sounds like it'd smell nice. I use cocoa butter now myself which is working nicely (I'm only 9 weeks but have stretch marks just from previous weight gain),but I don't like the smell at all. I've heard of several women using bio oil however I do know that Retain A is supposed to be a no no during pregnancy as far as acne medications go.
Avatar n tn We recently started using organic extra virgin coconut oil -- and Nikkivee posted this as well. Coconut oil is naturally anti-fungal (anti-yeast), so it’s a perfect yeast-fighter. Eating coconut oil helps fight the yeast on the inside, and it can be used topically to relieve fungal/yeast symptoms on the outside as well. It's also anti-bacterial and anti-viral in nature, so eating it every day is an excellent boost for your immune system.
Avatar n tn Hi For several months I have been getting this weird sensation that my skin is crawling. This happens just behind my right shoulder blade in exactly the same place every time. It generally happens for no reason that I can fathom. It is a sort of itching sensation and then a sensation that there is something crawling under my skin. When I rub it with my fingers it disappears for a while but inevitably it returns within a few minutes. There is no pain involved.
Avatar m tn I realize that there's plenty of research showing the anti-fungal properties of coconut oil, etc., which is great, but that doesn't mean there's been enough research to establish the best way to administer these natural remedies or to discover possible complications such as drug-resistance with these remedies. I just think it's a little premature for someone to give us recommendations for supplements in a post entitled "The PATM cure is here".
Avatar f tn try epison salt in your bath the nights u aren't bleach bathing. lotion or baby oil to take care of your skin also cause they can't move in oil. I read coconut lotion is best. vinegar and water in a spray bottle, u can even spray on yourself but clean your hard surfaces with vinegar. lastly menthol, u can apply vick's vap rub to your eyelashes with a cotton swab. try these things they helps me. also olive oil and I mean drench yourself for a few hours before bath.
Avatar n tn I have many but faint stretch marks from first (various areas) I thought maybe my small build (110lbs)was culprit for most. Suggestions on best lotion cream oil to use during???
Avatar f tn ” Using the same solution on my facial outbreaks as on my toe nails (the revised formula with coconut oil), the facial condition is clearing up. Just like with my feet, skin is sloughing off and the nodules are beginning to eject. This is the best result I’ve seen in years. I expect it will take a few months for the problem to be cured, as the fungus is down below the level of the base of the hair follicle in the sebaceous gland.
Avatar f tn My love is coconut oil. I put it in my bath and soak for 15 mins. That along with olive oil are great bases to lock in moisture which is what your skin needs to stretch without tearing/ ripping. Stretch marks are said to be genetic but I believe you can avoid them by drinking lots of water, lubricating your body daily, with healthy weight gain AND DONT SCRATCH. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I don't have money to spend on beauty products, nor on many supplements. So my routine is so basic it's ridiculous. I use simply coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil (organic). I lather it all over my arms, legs and face, and off I go for a run. By the time I've finished, it's absorbed and my skin is fairly dewy with sweat and moisture. I don't shower afterward either, because I want to keep my skin looking that way.
Avatar m tn Three days ago I started feeling like whatever this was is now in my skin (I'm certain of it), It's under the skin on my face, my scalp, my back, my toes, and my feet. I can feel it crawling in and out of my anus at times also. Went to the dermatoligist today and of couse he says it's my imagination, some people get it. He's subscribed me some DEXEPIN for depression. :( Funny thing is I'm not depressed, my life was quite good until this bug showed up.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately stretch marks are hereditary so not much can be done to prevent them. I use coconut oil, a Shea butter and Curel depending what I have on hand. Most important, I think, is to keep your skin hydrated.
Avatar f tn Sweet, I'm thinking coconut oil would be a good all natural way to keep ur skin moisturized. Very cool bio oil replacement. I might just use that and shea butter and vitamin e and an expensive product as well and hope that the more I use the less likely the stretch marks cuz I'll stay hydrated and moisturized.. well see!
Avatar n tn Also, for a body moisturiser I stand by a good organic coconut oil. Am in no doubt some specially formulated lotions help with scarring but they are also full of chemicals which I'd rather not risk absorbing into my body where baby's concerned... Have even replaced my usual aluminium filled chemical anti-perspirant with a natural rock salt alternative and daily shower(!) The coconut oil is not only soothing and prevents itching n dryness, but is vitamin rich for baby.
Avatar f tn Yeah I'm 34+3 and have not one stretch mark ! And I only used bio-oil until I was about 20 weeks.
Avatar n tn A friend of mine at work said his wife used coconut oil and my step mom used olive oil on herself. She has weird skin that scars weird, and got the marks, but my friends wife didn't. Keep hydrated and use a soap that has moisturizer in it (like Shea Butter or almond and milk extracts). I think that's what's actually doing the trick for me, since I use that lotion he got me very sparingly.
Avatar n tn I think you could do Ashwagandha and tumeric with no problem. You may want to get the curcumin as it has coconut oil in the mix. I love coconut oil but I have 15 yrs of very low cholesterol that increased by 30 pts due to my coconut oil consumption. I still use it but not therapeutically anymore.
Avatar f tn Some women are prone to them just by genetics alone and not many lotions will help much, but coconut oil, bio oil, belly butters, are great for keeping the skin hydrated! I'm 30 weeks and have no stretch marks anywhere on my belly, sides or breast, but I had a ton of stretch marks on my thighs from growing up so I figured I would get them on my tummy but not yet :) I got this oil from Sephora that I like a lot, I forget the name but it smells great and has lasted almost my entire pregnancy!
Avatar f tn Make sure fat is from natural sources, like olive oil, avocado, butter, coconut, etc, and not the fake stuff like margarine. A typical LCHF meal looks like egg omelette with bacon, asparagus and mushrooms, or another example large salad with olive oil and steak, or another example broccoli sautéed in butter with roasted chicken thigh (with skin on).
3060903 tn?1398568723 Tear-free baby shampoo, almond oil, and filtered water. Any skin-safe oil would do the job (coconut oil, olive oil, etc.), but almond oil is full of vitamin A, B and E, and isn’t as greasy feeling as other oils. In fact, almond oil can also reduce the appearance of dark circles and delay signs of aging. It’s the perfect oil for skin and hair! Combine all ingredients in a small bottle and shake before each use. Use a cotton swab, ball, or pad to remove makeup, specifically around the eyes.
Avatar f tn I'm 33 weeks I no itchyness is common in pregnancy but holy hell I think I might rip my skin off. I use coconut oil and moisturizers daily but nothing is working!!! Did any one else hashave this problem and how did u fix it.
Avatar n tn The one method which I have found barely any testemonies on even when googling it is the use of coconut oil, this method is appealing to me because the few testemonies I found stated that first off it does work and secondly there is no scarring or barely any irritation. Sounds hokey to me but oh well I am still going to give it a shot probably, Would be nice if more people new and told me about this method.
Avatar f tn None of my sisters have them either. I'm 30 weeks and I use coconut oil and Burt's bees on my belly and I don't have any stretch marks either. My doctor said to stay hydrated and keep the skin moisturized to lessen the chance of stretch marks.
Avatar f tn Coconut oil or even virgin olive oil is great for that dry sensitive skin. The best solution to how you look during tx is to avoid mirrors. Seriously.
Avatar n tn Went to health store so I am detoxing now with spirulina, nettle tea and putting coconut oil on the rash under my eyes. Spirulina to cleanse the blood , nettle tea to help with allergy and coconut oil , apparently has anti-fungal properties. Ive also bought an non-SLS toothpaste, a natural one.This is the second day of the detox and lumps are reduced in size slightly. Will post back in a few days /week with another update.
