Coconut Oil as Skin Treatment
While there are quite a lot of relatively cheap beauty treatment products sprouting left and right in the Philippine market, sticking with alternatives and more natural beauty care approaches is a good way to go in the country. Whether you are tightening your belt or hoping to discover other more effective forms of beauty treatment products, it is comforting to know that you can surely do both in the Philippines. Although natural alternatives here do not have the backing of an international scientific body’s conclusive study, local folks have proven through personal experience that some plants do work well for beauty purposes and other beauty conditions. Among those plant remedies that most Filipino natives recommend is the coconut.
Working particularly with a coconut’s oil, this plant’s by-product has been shown to have the properties of a moisturiser. It restores damaged skin, prevents free radicals from building up and can even treat liver spots without any adverse reactions unlike artificial beauty products! Aside from giving you fresh, smooth and youthful skin, coconut oil is also known to make your hair more black and lustrous like that of a true blue Filipina.
