Coconut oil has been a fad in diets for the past two years now but starting this year it should be your newest trend in your beauty routine. You heard right, coconut oil has many beauty and health benefits! You probably have a jar of this good stuff lying around in the kitchen but the time has come to put one in your bathroom!
According to nutritional experts, coconut oil is good for us. Okay this isn’t news but coconut oil has been mixed into health and beauty products for years so it only makes sense to directly apply it to our faces, our arms, our hair, our mouths, etc.
If you use an all-natural conditioner you may already know that coconut oil is one of the main ingredients. Skip all the other junk and apply the coconut oil to your hair directly. Coconut oil can deeply penetrate your hair and restore proteins that are stripped away from hair products and natural daily care. The best way to use it is to warm it up into a liquid, then apply from the ends to the roots and leave on for 30 minutes. Wash out with some organic shampoo and your hair will start to feel softer and look shiner. You can also sleep with the coconut oil conditioner in your hair, just wear a cap!
While you are in the shower rinsing out your deep coconut conditioner the next morning, apply some of it to your legs. Why? Because oyu can use it to shave your legs! Coconut oil is a natural antimicrobial (aka kills bacteria) so its great to use while you are shaving. Plus it will make your legs feel super smooth.
Coconut oil isn’t going to work last minute to make your dry skin feel smooth, but it will work overtime to prevent dry skin from happening again. After washing your hands our coming out of the shower rub some of the coco nutty goodness all over your body. Don’t overdo it so you don’t feel greasy, a little will go a long way, but we promise that the more you do this the more you will prevent dry skin. Also, coconut oil smells like a tropical island breeze so you will too, what’s not to love?
When your day is done and you need to wash your makeup off your eyes, yup use coconut oil. Oil is in every eye makeup remover so it makes sense to use coconut oil which will remove your makeup and hydrate under your eyes, which is the driest part of your body! You can also use it all over your face if you do not have sensitive skin as a cleanser to remove all face makeup!
