She’s recently been voted as one of the most natural and beautiful creatures in the world and wouldn’t we all like to know the secrets to her flawless blemish-free skin, perfect looks and glossy hair?
Well, stunning Miranda Kerr, 28, has revealed that one of Â the daily secrets she believes attributes to her stunning, healthy looking natural body beauty isÂ Coconut Oil.
Yep that’s right Coconut Oil, and the best news is that the latest must have self-enhancing beauty product doesn’t come with a whopping big designer price-tag which is great news because since it became endorsed as one of Miranda Kerr’s everyday daily revitalisers the little jars of precious oil have been flying off the shelves.
Victoria’s Secret model is also wife to gorgeous Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom and new mum to baby Flynn born to the couple in January andÂ recently revealed that since she gave birth to her son:
“I will not go a day without coconut oil. I personally take four tablespoons per day, either on my salads, in my cooking or in my cups of green tea.”
Health food stores Holland & Barrett have reported a significant increase in the sales of the store’s own product of Coconut Oil by more than 50 per cent having to rush to re-stock their online shelves as the product sold-out.
Coconut Oil contains fatty acids which are renowned for leaving the hair replenished and feeling silky and smooth but it has also been credited for having extra health benefits including weight loss.
Extracted from the flesh of mature coconuts, the oil can either be drank raw, added to food Â or treated to the skin or hair as a moisturiser.
“The small molecular structure of coconut oil allows for easy absorption through the skin giving it a soft texture making it an ideal relief for dry skin, rough skin and an excellent after-sun lotion becasue it melts into your kin, working wonderfully well as a hair conditioner too”, said Kate Butler, Nutritionist for Holland& Barrett Perfectly Pure Coconut Oil selling @ Â£12.99.
But hold your horses because according to World Health Organisation expert Professor Mike Gordon; “Coconut is 50 per cent made up of a fatty acid called lauric acid which if consumed to excess can contribute to increased risk of coronary heart disease.”
