Let’s face it: nobody wants them, but we’ll all inevitably get them. Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process and tend to appear in parts of the body which receive the most sun exposure. That means your face, neck, back of hands, and arms are most likely to develop these natural creases or grooves in the skin.
What causes wrinkles
It’s simple; as people get older, their skin becomes thinner, drier, and less elastic. As a result, it’s less able to protect itself, which leads to wrinkles.
The fine details that are to blame for fine lines:
- Repeatedly smiling, frowning, or squinting
- Sun damage
- Certain medications
- Environmental factors (such as exposure to UV light)
How coconut helps fight wrinkles
Coconut oil contains antioxidants that can help fight free radicals. Additionally, the antifungal and antibacterial properties of coconut oil can also heal your skin from existing damage. When used as a facial oil, it also makes a very effective moisturizer that can help with dehydration of the skin, which we have already mention can lead to fine lines and wrinkles.
Below, we’ve listed simple steps to help you take advantage of the skin moisturizing benefits of coconut oil for wrinkles every night before bed.
- Wash your face with cool water and pat dry.
- Take a small amount of coconut oil onto your fingers
- Apply to your face and neck, massaging these areas of sun exposure until the coconut oil absorbs into your skin.
- Leave the oil on overnight
- Repeat step number 1 in the morning.
