Red Palm Oil For Skin Lightening
For many years fat has gotten a bad rap. But there are many fats that actually help you ‘anti-age’. And there are many ancient remedies using fats that are good for you.
For example, ancient Egyptians used red palm oil as medicine for aches and pains. It was so sacred that they would be buried with it so they could use it in the afterlife. And it has been used in human consumption for over 5000 years.
Benefits Of Rubbing Palm Oil On The Skin
Today we know that red palm oil is full of vitamins and antioxidants, particularly Vitamin E. And because antioxidants are free-radical scavengers, they protect against atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), cancer, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, and cellular aging (delay aging).
Red Palm Oil Face Mask
Red palm oil is a fabulous moisturizer. But I must warn you, the color makes it a little messy. Simply apply all over the body and face.
I like to use it on a night I want to watch a movie or Power tv series lol. I put it all over my body, including my face – red palm oil face mask. Then I make sure to put an old sheet or an old blanket on the couch and I wear a dark robe that I don’t mind if it gets discolored or just sit in the toilet and use my phone.
After a couple of hours I head for the shower and wash with soap and water using a dark-colored washcloth. The yellow color is not that bad as it mostly soaks in and very easy to wash off. And apply raw Shea butter. This a good way to take care of acnes.
It’s well worth the extra steps because you will feel the effects until the next day.

Red palm has a large amount of carotenes which comes from its red color (more than tomatoes and carrots). Carotenes are then converted by your body into Vitamin A. Vitamin A supports your vision, cell growth and immune system.
