Coconut oil for sunburn? Pure or Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) blocks the damaging effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.
The tropical heat is literally one hot experience, believe me! The Philippines is an archipelago composed of 7,100 islands and located right in the middle of the equator.
Ever wondered why islanders who wore little clothing have clear, smooth and beautifully tanned complexion? That’s because coconut oil has a remarkable ability to heal the skin and shield it from the harmful effects of the sun's UV rays.
Even today, when there’s a proliferation of cheap, less-effective and even detrimental alternatives, many commercial sunscreen manufacturers still use coconut oil as the main ingredient. They know first-hand of coconut oil’s safe and effective suntanning effect.
WARNING! Please use pure or virgin coconut oil only, okay! Adulterated varieties may not work and could even harm you. Don’t forget this...
