Coconut Oil Cures

Wrinkles

I am curious as to what results people have achieved using coconut oil for reducing facial lines?

It is a lovely moisturizer, but if you want a line minimize, treat your lines with castor oil every night before bed. Be sure to pat off the excess oil with tissue and use a pillowcase you do not care about in case of transfer.

I read about Coconut oil on this site and went to my local health store to ask if they had any. They said no, but they suggested I take caprylic acid, which is in coconut oil and helps cure yeast overgrowth. I purchased it to help cure my athlete's foot and stomach discomfort.

I purchased it and I took one 350MG tablet daily as per directions. It did not cure my athlete's foot like I wanted, but I felt less hungry, less tired, and my stomach felt better. I also lost weight without serious effort. I've been taking it for two months now.

Warning: I experienced two things while taking this: stomach discomfort and a slightly yeasty odor coming from my body for a week or two.

The yeasty smell rubbed off on my washcloth and towels. I discovered by accident that putting a capful of hydrogen peroxide (the regular kind from the pharmacy, not the food grade kind) in my bathwater stopped this. It stopped me from emitting the yeasty smell and from transferring it to my wash cloth and towels.

For the athlete foot try apple cider vinegar. Wash you feet and use equal parts of the vinegar and hydrogen peroxide and after you moisturizer whith coconut oil. You have to be consistent and patient.
