Experts recommend using coconut oil for making your skin more elastic, preventing wrinkles and making you look younger. Coconut oil contains antioxidant vitamin E, which is known to protect the skin cells from damage and delay the occurrence of wrinkles. This vitamin has antiviral and antifungal properties; it soothes eczema, sunburn, and psoriasis.
