The first time I was introduced to the wonders of coconut, it was in the form of a hangover cure. Then, this summer, I was informed that coconut oil works as a great deep conditioning treatment for your hair. But it was really learning of the ingredient's third non-food-related use that got me, well, nuts for coconut.

Earlier this week over breakfast, Lorac National Makeup Artist Dean Fournier explained to me the benefits that the oil has on your skin. Not only is it extremely hydrating, but it's also packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and bonus—it won't clog pores or irritate sensitive skin. So basically, coconut oil is everyone's key to youthful, healthy skin.
