Coconut oil has been linked to many benefits for the skin, including reduced inflammation, moisturized skin, and better healing. Coconut oil contains medium-chain fatty acids and also has antimicrobial properties that can effectively treat acne and protect the skin from any threatening and harmful bacteria.

Below you will find some DIY body scrubs you can make at home using virgin coconut oil.
