As a good antioxidant, coconut oil prevents you from inflamed and burned skin due to long exposure to sunlight. Do not forget to apply coconut oil for skin before going out to the beach. The oil will protect your skin from sunburn to a great extent. It is also a natural Skin Tanner
Note: If you have consumed unsaturated oil like soybean oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, corn oil, canola oil, etc., you can have sunburn very easily because the unsaturated oil does collect into the skin cells. Therefore, although you have just taken coconut oil for weeks or months, your skin still gets burned easily.
