Best Coconut Oil for the Face and Body
Coconut oil has been hailed as the silver bullet that can do anything from zap zits to eradicate wrinkles (just beware of eating it). And yes, there’s some truth behind the hype. Coconut does instantly melt into your skin, making it a solid moisturizer. But it’s not for everyone. Especially for those with oily skin, it can clog pores and make your adult acne worse.
As far as the coconut oil you see in Whole Foods, yes, you can use that on your face. In fact, says Dr. Nava Greenfield of Schweiger Dermatology Group in Brooklyn, “using that specific type of coconut oil is great! But some people find it too greasy as a pure oil so it is added to a lot of products, and diluted down, to be only one ingredient.”
Based on dermatologists’ recommendations, coupled with our own research and experience, these are the best coconut oils for your skin and body.
