4 Best Beauty Uses of Coconut Oil
As you may or may not be aware coconut oil is quite the superfood for inside and outside your body! Not only is it the perfect oil to cook and bake with but it makes for one incredible and versatile beauty product…the most difficult thing when it comes to coconut oil is, do I keep it in the kitchen or the bathroom!?
Here is how to get the most out of your divine, cold pressed, virgin, unrefined coconut oil:
1. Make up remover
A lot of make up removers can be very harsh on the skin, leave the eyes watery and have super strong alcoholic smells, no thanks! Simply rub a little coconut oil over your eyes and clean away with cotton pad and for the rest of your face pour some oil onto the cotton pad and wipe away the day, then continue to wash the face as usual!
2. Hair Mask
We all need a little hair TLC so instead of making a trip to the hair dresser or buying special masks just rub in some coconut oil to the ends of your hair or throughout your whole head and leave for an hour or overnight if you like then wash thoroughly with some shampoo; condition like normal and notice the lovely silky smooth result. For best results I suggest doing this once a week!
3. Body Moisturiser
Oil is the absolute best moisturiser for our skin as it really absorbs right in! After the shower lightly dab yourself dry, not completely, then lather your entire body with coconut oil! The dampness helps it to absorb into your skin. If your still a little wet after applying the oil, lightly dab your body dry and enjoy smooth glowing skin for the day or night!
Yep! Coconut oil has a natural spf of 6 so use it for a chemical free sunscreen when going out to the beach for no more than an hour, I don’t want you to burn! Just to be clear this is not that Coconut Reef oil it is pure cold pressed, unrefined coconut oil!
So next time your buying Coconut Oil be sure to get the largest possible jar!
