Benefits of Coconut Oil

After Rose Water, Tea Tree Oil and Rosehip Oil the fourth important oil in my collection is Coconut oil. I’m pretty sure that many of you already own a jar of coconut oil. Not only does it come with health benefits when you take it in with your food but also with many beauty uses. Remember that coconut oil is not a dry oil (it doesn’t absorb) and may leave your skin oily. So let’s have a look at a few beauty benefits:

Face Treatment

  • Night Cream
    I recommend using Coconut Oil as a night cream rather than e day cream because it isn’t a dry oil. Apply coconut oil before you go to bed so it can treat your skin overnight.
  • Makeup remover
    Not only does the Coconut oil break down all your make up, but it also moisturizes your skin during this process. I agree it may take you longer but my skin feels much softer and more hydrated after using coconut oil as a makeup remover.
  • Lip Balm
    Apply a little amount of coconut oil to your lips and keep them soft and shiny. Especially in the wintertime, this should become a routine to avoid chapped lips.

Hair Treatment

  • Hair Growth, Dandruff, Split Ends
    For the abovementioned points, you should massage coconut oil into your scalp and hair. Then let it sit for at least one hour.
  • Hair Conditioner, Frizz Tamer
    Massage a tiny little amount of coconut oil into your hair. Make sure to only apply it to the ends of your hair. If you massage it up to your scalp your hair will look greasy!

Body Treatment

  • Body Cream
    Right after showering, massage a little amount of coconut oil into your skin. It’s best when you do it within one minute after drying off your body. Don’t use too much oil because that will ruin your clothes.
  • Shaving Cream
    It is very important to first moisturize your skin before you shave. So after exfoliating, you could apply coconut oil to your body. This will also give you a closer shave.

There are much more uses for coconut oil, but I didn’t want to overload this blog post. It is very important to know that every skin reacts differently to coconut oil. And overall you need to give your skin time to adjust to the change. First, you may have some breakouts or irritations until you find the right amount to use. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me. Thanks for reading **
