Coconut oil is known as the holy grail of beauty and life generally. That is because it can be used for a number things such as healing eczema, beauty product, cooking, hair and lots more.
But we are focusing on some of the beauty uses of coconut oil that you obviously don’t know about.
Eye Makeup Remover
Instead of wasting about three or more makeup wipes to remove your mascara, all you need to do is simply dip a cotton ball in coconut oil and gently sweep it over your eyes, paying attention to your under-eyes as well. The oil does a great job of breaking down waxy, inky eye makeup, and leaves the delicate area hydrated as well. Once you’re done, wash your face with warm water.
To exfoliate your body, simply mix coconut oil and brown sugar to create skin softening body scrub that will leave your skin fresh.
Massaging coconut oil into your scalp can help curb dandruff while also replenishing your scalp especially during the dry season.
As Massage Oil
You can pamper yourself by warming up a cup of coconut oil along with a few drops of your favorite essential oil and give yourself or a loved one a good message.
As a Lotion
Coconut oil is super hydrating and will give your skin a healthy glow especially when you run out of your body cream. You can mix your lotion with coconut oil for a glowing skin or use this versatile oil as the base to make your own body moisturizer.
You should massage coconut oil into your face and neck to take advantage of its’ antifungal properties. Then rinse with warm water before using your favorite cleanser for a fresher, clearer skin.
Mouthwash/ Breath Freshener
Coconut oil doubles as an anti-fungal, which means that bad breath and bacteria won’t stand a chance. Although the thought of gargling with coconut oil may not sound too pleasing but you should give it a try for beauty sake. So, gargling for 20 minutes with a spoonful of oil can help clear up germs in the mouth, leading to fresher breath, whiter teeth, and healthier gums.
To curb signs of aging, you should massage a small amount into your clean skin before going to bed to lock in moisture while you sleep.
You should simply rub a drop of coconut oil onto each cuticle to maintain strong, healthy nails.
Just rub a small amount in your hands and smooth from mid-shaft to ends for frizz-free style that’s high on shine.
You can use hot coconut oil as a pre-shampoo treatment to soothe dry hair before you shampoo and condition. Leave in for at least an hour for an allover moisturizing treatment.
Sensitive Skin Saver
If you have really sensitive skin and have problems finding a cream that works for your skin, then, opt for coconut oil.
Simply rub a small amount of coconut oil on top of makeup or bare face and leave it alone for a glowing skin.
Stretch Mark Cream
Expectant mothers should keep a jar of coconut oil nearby to help ward off stretch marks. While the oil won’t fade any marks, it can help prevent dark spots and blisters from forming. It can also be used treatment for scars.
However the list is inexhaustible. You can add yours.
