Pros of coconut oil: ...contains good mono- & polyunsaturated fats, & has no trans fat. Also, virgin coconut oil might have a positive effect on cholesterol levels & help protect against heart disease. Keep in mind its still high in saturated fat so don't replace all your cooking oil with it, use in moderation, & figure into your daily calorie & fat count. (Ref. Bhg. Com)

Coconut oil for sunburn?

Stick to basics: Sunburn is response of the tissues to injury from solar radiation. It is simply inflammation which means increase blood flow to the area to promote healing. Do not use ice as this can injure already injured skin. Cool water soaks can help as can taking anti-inflammation medicines like Motrin or advil (ibuprofen). Avoid any further damage as this can cause scarring. Good skin cream applied daily/gently helps.

Pure coconut oil is it good for body skin?

Pure coconut oil is it good for body skin?

Sort of.: Coconut oil is a very light moisturizer that sinks in quickly, which appeals to a lot of people. It works well for some, but not those with very dry skin, as it does not moisturize deeply enough. It also tends to clog pores. That doesn’t bother some people, but if you have a tendency to get clogged pores (blackheads, etc), coconut oil might exacerbate that problem.
