I’m a big fan of a comprehensive skincare routine, but I can’t lie: Sometimes, it’s nice to strip things back to basics and forgo a seven-step ritual in favour of one product that does it all. Coconut oil is nothing new—while it’s been trending for the past few years, it’s actually been used for hundreds of years as a does-it-all treatment for skin, hair and teeth.
As someone who’s prone to breakouts, I was reluctant to jump onboard the coconut-oil bandwagon, despite everyone from Miranda Kerr to Emma Stone raving about its skincare benefits. But when a colleague in a previous job with the most amazing skin put her complexion glow down to coconut oil, I was swayed.
