Most of the hours in my day are spent outside- training clients, surfing, and playing beach volleyball. It is not only essential to keep my skin protected, but it is very important to repair any damage that has been done.

In addition to a high SPF sunscreen and a hat, I have found the easiest way to keep my skin smooth and healthy are natural oils. I made two discoveries that are the perfect skin remedy for long sunny days- coconut oil and carrot oil.

The Inertia

I learned about the benefits coconut oil while on a surf trip at  Kandavu, Fiji. Every person had radiant skin, even though they spent most days in the hot sun. Coconut oil is part of their daily skin regimen.

The Magic Ingredient: Extra virgin coconut oil is high in vitamin E, an antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals that are damaging your skin.

The Benefits: Skin products high in antioxidants reduce the appearance of wrinkles, repair skin damage, and naturally prevent additional skin damage.

The Right Choice: Extra virgin coconut oil is a great option, because it’s unrefined, and has not been stripped of any natural components.

The Magic Ingredient: Carrot oil is a natural way to repair and hydrate your skin. It’s rich in antioxidants (beta-carotene) and essential vitamins (B,C,D,E), which help rejuvenate skin, and reduces the risk of premature aging.

The Benefits: In addition to rejuvenating the skin, carrot oil can also remove buildup in the pores and improve your skin’s firmness. As well as gives your skin a natural tan.

The Right Choice: Carrot oil is a great option for your face, because it tones, repairs, and improves the appearance of your skin without added chemicals, which can cause harmful effects.
