6 Ways to use Coconut Oil for beauty


Even with the recent update that coconut oil, like other fats, is best in moderation for diet, it is still the skin and hair’s dreams come true. It has a deep moisturizing quality while offering nutrients that beautify the body.

Here are our 6 ways to use coconut oil.

Makeup Remover: Before you spend money on a product designed to remove makeup, consider using coconut oil to do the trick. You can use a cotton ball and just a bit of coconut oil and use it to wipe eye makeup off.

Coconut Oil and Breakouts: If your skin is not oily, you can do all over your face to remove the last bits of foundation after cleansing. Those with oily skin may be better off using grape seed oil to remove facial makeup.

As a Leave-in Conditioner: Dry hair got you feeling less than glamorous? Applying coconut oil can help with that, too.

Massage some into your ends after your normal styling routine, or apply generously all over your hair and leave it on overnight (make sure to cover your pillow with a towel). In the morning, coat your head with a safe soap, like Dr. Bronner’s or an organic shampoo (make sure you do this before adding water) and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Then rinse and style as normal.

This super moisturizer will help restore shine and softness to dry, overworked hair.

Oil pulling: Oil pulling is the ancient practice of rinsing one’s mouth with oil. Traditionally sesame oil is preferred, but many people use coconut oil instead because, frankly, coconut oil tastes a lot better and the benefits are the same.

Coconut lip balm: You can’t get much more natural than pure coconut oil as your lip balm. It does the trick, relieving chapped lips and giving your pout a shiny finish.

For lip treatment put coconut oil in a container, add a drop or two of peppermint essential oil.

Our coconut honey mask: It is a good way to eliminate dry skin, while helping to soothe and diminish the appearance of wrinkles.

Applying coconut oil as a mask and then washing it off after is a great way to enjoy the benefits of the moisturizer without clogging your pores.
