Coconut oil is one of those products which everyone uses in their daily routine. It can solely replace many beauty products lying in your dressing.
Always try to look for unrefined and cold-pressed coconut oil to reap the maximum benefits from it. In this post, I am gonna share my personal ways to use coconut oil as various beauty remedies.
Whenever applied as a night-time moisturiser on the skin, the antioxidants and fatty acids present in the coconut oil heals our facial tissues very effectively. It treats skin’s dryness pretty well and also gives a radiant glow to our skin.
In winters, my body’s skin tends to appear very dry and flaky due to hot showers in this season. I tried out many lotions to treat my dried skin issue but they did not help me at all. The problem with these lotions is that they keep our skin soft only for few hours. But it is not the case with the oil. It keeps my skin soft for at least 2-3 day.
Coconut oil works great as a makeup remover and also an organic version of it. It can remove your waterproof makeup very easily. You only need to dab some amount of this magic oil and rub it on your face for about a minute. Afterwards, just clean all of the oil with a clean tissue.
Does hot bath in winters make your skin dry and irritated? Don’t worry. We have a quick fix for this problem. Just put a teaspoon of coconut oil in a bucket of warm water and your skin will thank you for this extra love.
Coconut oil can also be used as a shaving cream. For this, you only need to slather some oil on the part you want to shave. You will experience a smooth shave after using it on the skin and also you will notice a silky smooth skin after the shave.
Frizz Control Serum
Winters always tends to make my hair bit frizzy and unmanageable. But coconut oil solved this problem of mine as well. For this quick fix, put 3-4 drops of oil on your palm and then gently apply it to your frizzy hair. It will instantly tame your frizz in a minute.
Stop spending your money on those costly body scrubs. Instead, make a one at home with the ingredients lying in your kitchen. This recipe only needs half a teaspoon of coconut oil and lemon. Add a spoonful of sugar to this mixture. If the consistency of this scrub is runny for you, add half a spoon of more sugar to it. Voila! your homemade scrub is ready to use.
Coconut oil can also be used to make our lips soft and supple. It works great as a chapstick.
