TRENDING NOW: COCONUT OIL

The darling of the natural ingredients show right now, Coconut Oil is one that’s hard to not have a soft spot for. 

Not that it was just discovered yesterday. Or even that it was ever forgotten. But since certain diet ideas drifted into our lives a year or two ago, and we began slathering this gorgeous stuff on our toast and using it to fry croutons, it has seemed obvious that the other benefits of coconut oil be reconsidered. 

For soft, conditioned skin, coconut oil is just what the doctor ordered.  Externally, “coconut oil soothes with Vitamin E and has antibacterial properties that can help with skin disorders,” says Stafford Broumand, M.D., a plastic surgeon and Associate Clinical Professor of Plastic Surgery at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.



This is why, when we invented our ranges of SKOON. skin care, we gave serious consideration to coconut oil and its benefits – and included it in SKOON. Nkuto ButterGel-to-Milk Cleanser, Double Thick CreamSolid Body Oil - Frangipani Flowers.

Order coconutty SKOON. products online now at www.skoonskin.co.za. And while you’re waiting for the courier man to arrive, think about how else you can enjoy the wonderful taste of this supersize nut. (Oh, just a turn of phrase. If you have a nut allergy, never mind. The coconut is a drupe. Which, botanically speaking, is not a real nut.)

* Spread it over your toast. When avocado feels too predictable, try a dollop of coconut oil. In solid form, it’s as easy to use as butter.
* Blend it in your smoothie. A spoonful will give you an added dose of vitamin E while enhancing the nuttiness of a tropical banana/almond milk drink.
* Pour it over popcorn. Drizzle a few tablespoons of warm coconut oil over your bowl of popcorn. The creamy flavor complements corn’s natural sweetness.
* Pump up your coffee. Doctors and scientists have mixed reviews over the health benefits of "bulletproof coffee," but it's becoming more and more popular as a way to ramp up energy, naturally.
* Massage it into your hair. In many cultures, coconut oil is used as a mask to strengthen hair and boost shine. To make your own, heat four tablespoons of coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl for about 30 seconds and massage the oil into your scalp, combing through to the ends. Pop on a shower cap, and leave it in for a few hours or overnight. Shampoo and rinse.
* Use SKOON. Nkuto, with coconut oil, as a highlighter. Rub a tiny bit between your fingers and dab it over your cheekbones and brow-bones for a super subtle, light-catching sheen.
* Add a little SKOON. Gel-to-milk to your bathtub. 
* Massage it into cuticles. Between manis, keep your hands soft by rubbing oil into nail beds. We recommend SKOON. Solid Body Oil – Frangipani Flowers which also contains, Organic Shea, Organic Grape Seed, Marula, Natural Vitamin E, Linden Blossom, Vanilla and Jasmine.
