Beauty Tip of The Week Benefits of Coconut Oil

It’s always nice to treat your body with products that are going to benefit it for the future such as a good moisturizer. It’s even nicer when said products are all natural and healthy without any added chemicals. Coconut oil has been a proven force in the beauty industry for quite some time now. Below are 10 amazing ways this natural oil can benefit your health and beauty routine

  1. Eye Makeup Remover

Grab a cotton pad and rub it in a bit of coconut oil to remove any eyeshadow, eyeliner or stubborn mascara marks.

     2. Shaving Cream

Not only can shaving cream be expensive, but how many times do they claim to have a built in moisturizer that never works. Coconut oil is a two in one deal.

     3. Deep Conditioner

After shampooing, run coconut oil through your hair and leave in for five to 10 minutes then rinse. If you prefer, use it at night and sleep with a shower cap on. You can rinse and shampoo normally in the morning.

     4. Body Moisturizer

Coconut oil is proven to not only moisturize the skin, but also aids in healing cuts faster. It smells pretty amazing too!

     5. Body Scrub

Mix together some melted coconut oil and sugar to make an in-shower body scrub.

     6. Highlighter

Once you’ve finished your makeup, sweep a bit of coconut oil over your cheekbones for a natural glow.

     7. Makeup Brush Cleaner

Mix a bit of antibacterial soap with coconut oil to clean excess/leftover makeup off of your brushes.

     8. Lip Balm

Grab a mini jar of coconut oil for your purse. On-the-go hydration at it’s finest.

     9. Tame Frizz

Rub some of the oil in your hands and run them through your hair.

     10. Teeth Whitener

Coconut oil and baking soda mixed into a paste will give you your whitest smile yet.
