- 0:29-0:34 – Steps for Using Coconut Oil to Fight Wrinkles:
- 0:35-0:41 – #1 – “Coconut oil has been found to have a positive antioxidant action in the body, according to Dr. Oz.”
- 0:42-0:58 – “It has a lot of vitamin E, which may enhance the skin. Therefore, you can apply coconut oil to your face or body and ingest it as well.”
- 1:05-1:24 – #2 – Use “organic, virgin coconut oil, so you avoid absorbing toxins or chemicals that may harm your overall health.” As well, “go for cold-pressed options, which means the oil has been mechanically extracted at temperatures below 120 degrees Fahrenheit in order to preserve its health-boosting properties.”
- 1:25-1:37 – “Virgin coconut oil is also not processed, refined or deodorized. Those that are not cold-pressed may have less of the good stuff, as the heat may have destroyed some substances.”
- 1:39-1:41 – #3 – “You can use coconut oil as a moisturizer.”
- 1:42-1:59 – “Apply it at night before you go to sleep and in the morning when you wake up after washing your face. Slathering on some oil while your face or body is still dame is ideal, as the oil will help lock in the moisture and plump up fine lines, making your skin look smoother and feel suppler.”
- 2:00-2:14 – #4 – “Massage coconut oil onto your face before you get into the shower so that you protect your skin from the drying effects of hot water. Moreover, the stream from the hot shower helps your skin absorb the oil better.”
- 2:15-2:19 – “When you do this, you won’t need to put moisturizer on afterward.”
- 2:20-2:40 – #5 – “Using coconut oil as a make-up remover and facial cleanser is also recommended. You can even forego soaping up when you do so. Apply the oil onto your face with a bass of cotton and rub it all over. Then, leave it on for about 3 to 5 minutes.”
- 2:41-2:58 – “Afterward, rinse the oil off using very warm water. Doing this will (help) remove make-up residue and excess oil, leaving just the right amount of oil. Pat dry and top off with a non-comedogenic moisturizer. This way, you prevent adding new fine lines or minimize existing ones.”
- 2:59-3:32 – #6 – “Do regular facial massages using coconut oil. Spend about 5-10 minutes smoothing and sliding your fingers on your forehead, cheeks, jawline and chin using an outward, circular motion. Make sure you apply light pressure in slow and careful strokes. Don’t forget your brow line and the area around your eyes. Do not be too rough with your skin under-eye area, as it is the most fragile and thinnest layer of skin on your face. Just put some oil on it using light, feathery strokes.”
- 3:33-3:39 – #7 – “You can also mix in a little coconut oil into salads to boost the health benefits.”
- 3:40-3:43 – “Additionally, you can use it to cook your favorite dishes.”
- 3:44-3:49 – #8 – Use “soaps made with coconut oil.”
