Q: I’ve heard that coconut is great for skin. What are the benefits? Can you recommend some coconut skincare products?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
You heard right! Coconut is wonderful for skin. Women around the world (particularly in tropical regions) have used it for centuries as a natural solution for keeping skin soft, smooth and hydrated. Many swear by its anti-aging effects, said to be from both its intense moisturizing properties and its antioxidant content.
