Coconut oil is used medicinally around the globe to treat a variety of health issues from asthma to wounds. Relating to the body’s largest organ, the skin, coconut oil helps to heal bruises, scrapes and burns; it helps fight premature aging in the skin and skin inflammation and it is a natural exfoliant. Virgin coconut oil fights to prevent wrinkles and sagging skin and to prevent and fade age spots. It is a protective antioxidant with no added fragrances or harmful chemicals.
Things You'll Need
Wash your face and hands with clean water. Dry gently with a soft towel.
Pour a few drops of coconut oil into the palm of your hand.
Apply the coconut oil to your face where the age spots have appeared and gently massage the oil into the skin. Massage the skin in an upward pattern toward the hair line. If the age spots are near the eyes, use the ring finger, only, as this is the weakest finger and will not pull the gentle skin around the eye area.
Apply coconut oil to your hands and arms if you have age spots in those areas. If you do not have age spots on your hands and arms, apply some there for age spot prevention.
Apply coconut oil to your age spots immediately after coming in from the sunshine to help repair any damage that the sun may have caused.
Coconut oil will keep safely at room temperature for about two years.
Wear a hat and sunblock when outdoors to protect your skin from the sun.
