3. Skin Care
Coconut oil is an excellent massage oil for the skin as well. It acts as an effective moisturizer for all skin types, including dry skin. The benefit of coconut oil on the skin is comparable to that of mineral oil. Fortunately, unlike mineral oil, it is impossible to have adverse side effects on the skin if we apply coconut oil. Therefore, coconut oil is a safe solution for preventing dryness and flaking of the skin.
