Coconut Oil and Birth Marks
Over the last few years there has been a lot about what a marvel coconut oil can be. Some people swear by it to help with Alzheimer’s to sun damage caused to the skin. It is important to buy organic coconut oil if you want to use it, especially if it is on the skin which, after all, is the body’s largest organ.
The coconut oil is, of course, derived from the coconut fruit of the palm tree. It is generally considered very beneficial for the skin as it contains vitamin E as well as having antimicrobial properties. It soothes the skin and is good for dry and even rough skin. If you have any skin irritation such as psoriasis or eczema, this may help.
Also applying virgin coconut oil and birth marks may fade and even disappear. Virgin coconut oil is unrefined and therefore as little processed as possible and this is the one you should be using as it is in its most natural state. Obviously it depends on the birth mark in question. While there is not sufficient evidence to support claims made by using it on all skin conditions, it does help to regenerate the skin and many people have had success with it, whether reducing their scars, pregnancy mask, or stretch marks, to freckles and age spots, as well as birth marks.
Treating your skin with coconut oil strengthens the underlying tissue, according to Bruce Fife, N.D. The layers under the skin's surface break down from age, sun damage and free radical damage. Regenerating the skin's surface and underlying tissue has the potential to fade pigmentation and restore your skin.
The trick would also be to put the coconut oil onto the birth mark very often and very regularly. Several times each day would be good. Coconut oil actually strengthens the skin beneath the upper layer, which is why it may be helpful in healing such skin conditions. There are reports on the internet of people using this to get rid of their birth marks.
You can buy virgin coconut oil in any health food store. Otherwise it is freely available from many websites online. Even amazon has organic extra virgin coconut oil for around $24 which is a small price to pay for something that is so beneficial to your health.
