You may not know this, but coconut oil is one of the greatest beauty products around. Coconut oil is great because you can use it for many different things and it is completely natural. You won’t find all of the unhealthy chemicals that you will likely find in other beauty products.
Moisturizer: You can use coconut oil as a moisturizer. You can use it for both your face and your body. Just rub a little on your hands and apply to your entire body. You will immediately feel how soft it makes your skin. Use it as a lotion or after you shave to moisturize the skin. You can also use it to keep your skin moisturized if you spent the day in the sun or at the beach.
Hair: Use it on your hair! That’s right. Apply a little to your hair before you shampoo. Let it soak in your hair for a while and then rinse, shampoo, and apply conditioner as usual. You can even apply it to your whole hair and leave it in overnight if you shower in the morning to get a deep conditioner effect. It will leave your hair soft, shiny, and healthy.
Makeup Remover: You can use coconut oil to remove your makeup easily. Apply it to your eyes if you have mascara or eyeliner on and it will gently remove it. If you leave a little on near your eyelashes that is totally okay because it will help them grow faster. Oh the many benefits of coconut oil!
What kind: You should always buy extra virgin, unrefined coconut oil. This type of oil does not go through as much processing and is very close to the natural state of coconut oil. You can also take supplements of coconut oil that will make your skin and hair glow!
