Coconut oil is used in many natural beauty products, and for good reason: It's naturally antibacterial and antifungal, it's an excellent moisturizer, it can penetrate hair better than other oils.
Coconut oil has rehydrating, emollient, and elasticizing properties which counters the formation of wrinkles and strengthens hair. This can be exemplified by the Polynesian women; even though they are exposed to the damaging effects of strong sun and winds, they are famous for their beautiful hair and skin which is partly due to their frequent use of coconut oil.
Gently dab a bit around your eyes, after you have done your nighttime routine.
