Olive oil is gentle and can be absorbed quickly by your skin and is said to be an excellent natural moisturizer.

Coconut oil may be linked to some potential benefits for skin, including reducing inflammation, keeping skin moisturized and helping heal wounds. The medium-chain fatty acids found in coconut oil also possess antimicrobial properties that are said to help treat acne and protect the skin from harmful bacteria.
