In my post HERE I noted that coconut oil is supposed to be good for your skin so yesterday after my shower I patted myself with a towel and applied the coconut oil while my skin was still slightly damp. Applying lotions to damp skin seals in the moisture and keeps your skin hydrated longer. Coconut oil is solid and looks a lot like Crisco. But as soon as it hits your skin your body heat begins to melt it and it will completely melt just by rubbing it between your hands for a few seconds.. You can see in the picture that it is already melting just sitting in my hand.
I used about a teaspoon at a time. When I was finished my skin felt a little oily, which I didn't like.
So, today I didn't even dry off after my shower...I just applied the oil right in the shower and then patted myself dry. I liked this method much better. Not so oily feeling and my skin felt very soft. But honestly, I prefer my Philosophy lotions...they're easier to use and not as messy.
Stay tuned for experiment #2...hair.
