Benefits of Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is of course used in cooking, but here are ways that I’ve been using it in my beauty routine!

hair mask I use this about once a week to once a month depending on my hairs needs. Rub into hair and scalp and let it soak into hair for a few hours to overnight. I then shampoo and dry! This really restores moisture and nourishes the hair.

lotion I rub this all over my body as a fast absorbing lotion, and a little goes a long way! Coconut oil melts at body temperature so putting some on your hand will melt it rapidly!

shaving cream I use this on my legs in the bath to shave and it makes it so easy to shave. The oil kills bacteria on the skin, moisturizes, and provides lubrication for the razor!

bath oil Put some in the bath to leave skin smooth and hydrated!

cuticle oil Rub into cuticles to soften them.

makeup remove Apply a moderate amount to face, let sit for a minute and wipe off with cotton pad. Be careful around the eyes though! The oil works to break up the makeup and stick to the oil instead of your face!

Where to buy?: I try different brands on Amazon, just make sure it is extra virgin coconut oil!

I hope you try out some of these tricks!
