More ways to use coconut oil in your beauty routine

Hello everyone!

I've talked about the wonders of coconut oil before.  Read this previous post: 5 Ways to use coconut oil in your beauty routine.  Coconut oil is the perfect moisturiser because it’s lightweight and easily absorbed.


Below, are 7 more ways to incorporate it into your beauty routine:




As a frizz-tamer

Use a tiny amount of coconut oil to smooth down flyaway hair and add shine to your locks.

As a moisturiser 

The fatty acids in coconut oil helps lock moisture into the skin, so smooth some over your elbows and other rough spots to soften and heal.

Instead of cuticle oil 

Just dab some coconut oil on your cuticles and nails (you can also use it as a hand cream).  If you do this before bed and put on gloves, you’ll wake up to soft, smooth hands.

In a DIY face scrub 

Add some baking soda to your coconut oil for a gentle exfoliating face scrub.  You might feel a bit of residue after rinsing, but the oil will absorb into your skin after a few minutes.

Around your eye area
Coconut oil is great for hydrating the gentle skin around your eyes.  It will leave your eye area extra smooth and decrease lines and wrinkles.

To cleanse your face

I already told you about the oil cleansing method. Read more here: A natural way to cleanse and heal your face.  However, it’s best to test this out; there are some people who claim that coconut oil breaks them out! So be very careful.

To enhancer your eyebrow growth

Use a tiny amount of coconut oil to massage your eyebrows for thickening and darkening.  You can also use this DIY: Eyebrow growth serum.
