Beauty Face Benefits of Coconut Oil
Besides many health benefits of coconut oil, here are some of the ways you can incorporate it into your beauty routine:
Make up remover: Massage a small amount of warmed, liquefied coconut oil straight onto skin to remove the make up, then rinse with lukewarm water.
Under eye cream: The skin under your eyes is thin and delicate, making it prone to fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles. Rub a pinch in between fingers to warm it up before patting it underneath your eyes.
Lip balm: Chapped lips don’t stand a chance against ultra-hydrating coconut oil and dab it on with your finger throughout the day.
Hair mask: After shampooing, apply a generous amount of the oil to wet hair and twist hair into a bun. Let it sit for at least five minutes before rinsing to add moisture and shine. For the frizz protection rub a pea size amount of coconut oil between your fingers to warm it up, and then apply it to the bottom couple inches of your hair for all day frizz protection. If you have thicker hair, apply the coconut oil from mid-shaft to ends for added frizz control.
Body oil: Coconut oil’s creamy texture makes it the perfect light moisturizer for the skin. Apply a amount right after you get out of the shower so it can sink into your warm skin.
Body scrub: Mix a half cup of sea salt or sugar with an equal amount of melted coconut oil, and then use your hands to rub it over any rough patches of skin. The scrub moisturizes while removing dead skin cells.
Cuticle softener: Swipe a small amount of the oil onto your cuticles and allow it to sink in. The coconut oil will strengthen your nails and hydrate the delicate cuticle skin.
