Did you know that coconut oil can bring miracles when it comes to beauty care!
Not only is coconut oil a chemical-free natural superfood, but it can also bring many beauty benefits as it does health! So today, we are showing you how you can incorporate coconut oil into your beauty routine. Whether it’s to achieve smooth, silky hair or smooth silky legs, we’ve compiled a list of 7 different ways you can use coconut oil in your beauty routine.
Let’s get into it, shall we?
1. Dry and Damaged Hair Treatment
For starters, coconut oil can work wonders for dry, damaged, and frizzy hair. The fatty acids soften your hair, and trap the moisture inside. The best way to apply it is to rub a small amount between your hands then apply it to your hair from roots to ends. Do this technique one section at a time, and comb through. Wrap your hair in a towel for at least 15 minutes and then follow with a gentle shampoo. If you are feeling bold, consider sleeping with it (cover your head with a shower cap to avoid getting coconut oil all over your pillow) and pursue your regular shower routine in the morning. It’ll leave your hair feeling smooth and silky!
2. Makeup Remover
Coconut oil is a great way to break down any waterproof mascara or heavy eye makeup or as a makeup remover at the end of the day. Use a cosmetic cotton pad and rub some coconut oil into it.
3. Body Scrub
Combine a tablespoon of coconut oil with a tablespoon of ground coffee, and you’ve got a great body scrubbing mix! Other alternatives to exfoliants are ground sea salt and sugar.
4. Body moisturizer
Coconut oil is a great way to moisturize your skin as a body lotion. Bonus: you smell like coconuts!
5. Frizz Tamer
Apply a small amount of coconut oil and rub it into the palms of your hands and smooth it over your frizz to achieve a smooth and shiny look.
6. Shaving Balm
Smooth over a thin layer of coconut oil onto your legs before shaving to trap that moisture in and leave your legs feeling as smooth as a baby’s bottom.
7. Face Mask
Looking for a simple and quick face mask for that night in? Combine 1 tablespoon of honey + 1 tablespoon of melted coconut oil. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes. Make sure your face is dry and clean, and apply the mask. Wait about 10 minutes and remove it all with a warm washcloth.
