I’m sure you’ve heard some of the health and beauty benefits of coconut oil but I’d like to share with you my personal uses and why I love it so much.
1. It’s a great moisturizer
It’s natural and nearly scentless and you can put it on your face because it doesn’t clog your pores or cause breakouts!
2. You can use it as conditioner
I like to rub a glob between my hands and rub it through my hair. I leave it in for 30 minutes to an hour and then (thoroughly) wash it out. It gives great shine and softness. I only do this when I feel I need to because I don’t want to have too much build up on my hair and my hair isn’t especially dry by nature.
3. It makes a good sugar scrub
Mix your coconut oil with equal parts sugar and voila! Awesome Exfoliant! I put it on while in the shower and it washes off nicely and leaves your skin smooth and vibrant. You can scent or color it if you like but I don’t bother. Also a fun gift idea!
4. Works as a makeup remover
My husband actually suggested I try it for makeup removal so I gave it a shot and it worked like a charm! It effortlessly washed everything off including my mascara and eye liner! It’s now a part of my daily routine.
You can also use coconut oil for cooking, minimizing stretch marks, lipbalm, toothpaste and more! The possibilities are seemingly endless.
