The Importance of Coconut Oil
Here are some ways to use coconut oil as your DIY saviour beauty at home.
Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment
Rub a small amount of oil into hair (mostly at the ends), comb through and place hair in a loose bun or in a shower cap. Let sit overnight and wash out in the morning.
Rub coconut oil directly into skin directly after showering.
Eye Makeup Remover
Rub a small amount of coconut oil on eyelashes or waterproof makeup and rinse off.
Rub a very small amount of coconut oil on the tops of cheekbones to highlight over makeup.
Dry feet treatment
Combine coconut oil with sea salt to create a foot scrub.
Rub coconut oil on burned skin to help soothe and repair sunburned skin.
Stretch mark prevention
Apply coconut oil to stretching skin multiple times a day.
Combine coconut oil and sugar to create a sugar scrub to exfoliate and soften your skin.
Rub coconut oil on area to be shaved to replace shaving cream and post shave moisturizer.
Rub a small amount of coconut oil on lips for a natural lip balm.
Apply a small amount of coconut oil on clean skin in place of usual moisturiser.
Add some coconut oil to a warm bath to soften skin.
Frizzy hair fighter
Rub a little coconut oil between your palms and rub through hair to tame frizziness and fly aways.
Hydrating night cream
Replace your night cream with coconut oil. Apply coconut oil to the areas that tend to wrinkle and crease to lock in moisture and hydrate skin.
I really like coconut oil! I do clean my make-up with coconut oil and it works perfectly and much better than any make-up remover I've tried in the past. Recommended!
