Here are our favourite everyday uses for coconut oil for beauty . Coconut oil has a wide array of health benefits, hair and skin uses, and uses around the home. I was using it a decade ago before it became popular and widely available in grocery stores.
These are some of the reasons why I love it:
To soothe dry hands
This won’t work for dry digits when you’re on the go, but at home, coconut oil for skin can work wonders on your dishwashing-parched hands.
To shave your legs
Conventional shaving cream is an expensive cocktail of chemicals that you don’t need to get a nice clean shave on your legs or underarms. Coconut oil, on the other hand, is inexpensive, naturally antimicrobial, and smells divine.
To remove eye makeup
Yes, coconut oil even works on waterproof mascara! Put a little of this Organic Coconut Oil for Beauty on a cotton ball and gently sweep it over your eyes, paying attention to your under-eyes as well. The oil does a great job breaking down waxy, inky eye makeup, and leaves the delicate area hydrated, too.
As a body moisturizer
A recent animal study found that when applied topically, virgin organic coconut oil for skin can speed up wound healing, and a human study found it to be effective in increasing hydration and reducing water loss in seriously dry skin.
To clean your face
Because coconut oil is naturally antibacterial, antifungal, moisturizing and, according to research, great for atopic dermatitis, many women swear by its use as a nighttime moisturizer for their face, too. Try the double-cleansing method: Simply rub the oil in circular motions all over your face and neck, giving yourself a gentle massage as you go. When you’re done, wash off the residue with your favorite cleanser.
