The all-round product: Coconut Oil. Many of you may know it as a healthy fat for cooking or baking. But the fat from the amazing Coconut Fruit can do so many more things than just that.
Here are 7 reasons why you should go to the store right now and get yourself a jar of wonders yourself.
1) MAKE UP REMOVING – will take away all, even waterproof makeup with a few soft wipes
Coconut Oil is a cheap and healthy alternative for any irritating and expensive makeup removers you can find at the store.
Not only does it easily take away all your face and eye makeup, it is also great for hydrating your lashes, in order for them to grow thick and strong. And lets be real, who doesn’t want long and lushes lashes for a fraction of the price of a growth serum?
2) HAIR CARE – as an ingredient for a DIY Hair Mask or just applied to the hair throughout the day
Coconut oil is one of the few oils (beside olive oil and avocado oil for example), that can actuallay penetrate the Hairshaft and don‘t just sit on top of your hair like other oils do. Coconut oil has the smallest molecular size, making it the best penetrative hair oil for hair. It can actually seep under the cuticales to 95%, which leads to healthier, stronger hair. Not just on the outside but also from the inside of the hair.
3) SHAVING CREAM – smooth and painless shaving experience
Again, the oil is a great alternative for expensive and chemical products that can actually cause the skin to get dry and damaged. Regular, store bought shaving creams often tend to have really strong scent and seem to dry out the skin. Coconut oil not only makes it possible to have a smooth shaving experience, it hydrates and nourishes the skin at the same time.
4) DIY BODY SCRUB – hydrating and softening
Mixed with some coffee and brown sugar, coconut oil makes one of the greatest Body Scrubs that you can easily make at home. Not only will the Coffee reduce discoloration in the skin, it is also one of the worst enemies of cellulite. The Sugar will give the mixture the soft scrubbing effect, without making it feel uncomfortabe or irritating the skin. Best thing at the end, the coconut oil will seek into your pores and give your skin that gorgeous glow and hydration we all look for.
5) NATURAL HIGHLIGHTER – glowing and hydrated skin for day
Nowadays glowy and dewy skin is one thing that many seek to achieve for the perfect summer makeup look. But even on a makeup free day, coconut oil makes a perfect natural highlighter to make your skin look hydrated and luminous all throughout the day.
6) MOUTH WASH – Coconut oil pulling for healthy teeth and gums
Coconut oil pulling is one of the best ways to remove bacteria and promote healthy teeth and gums! Oil pulling has been used for ages, but just now it is gaining some popularity all around the world. It is a fantastic oral detoxification procedure that is simply done by swishing a tablespoon of oil in your mouth for preferabily 10 – 15 minutes. This is not a replacement for teeth brushing in any way! Just a great way to help stinky morning breath and to keep your whole mouth healthy.
7) LIP BALM – lushes lips for days
Its amazingly hydrating properties can be used for giving you lushes and soft lips. When applied in the evening before bed, Coconut oil can make your lips feel super soft and look great in the morning. Mixed with some sea salt, it can also be used as a great scrub to get rid off any dead skin that might sit on top of your lips and even to plump them a little bit.
