This winter has done a number on my skin. Dry face, hands, you name it and it's cracked and peeling. A few months ago I read somewhere that coconut oil was good for dry skin. But since I have a new baby (yep, I'm going to milk that as long as I can) and a toddler I didn't have the time (ie, forgot) to hunt it down.
Then a few weeks ago I was in Trader Joe's and what did I see on the end cap but coconut oil. At $5.99 a jar I decided to pick one up and try it out.
The oil itself reminds me of Crisco so I just used my fingers to rub a little bit off and put it on my face and neck. The next morning my skin looked much better, not completely void of dryness, but not as scaly as I had been. I've been alternating using the oil with my regular lotion at night because I'm nervous that all of a sudden I'll break out , but so far so good. It's been about 2 weeks and I only have a little dry skin left.
Such a great buy! Hopefully they'll continue to stock it (although at this rate my jar will last a lifetime).
