The Benefits of Coconut Oil

If you are anything like me
having a million different bottles of beauty products overflowing on your
vanity can be a pain, downsizing your beauty clutter may sound ideal, but who
wants to risk sacrificing radiant skin and silky hair for a little
organization? Fortunately there is a single item that can replace a handful of
those products and better yet, it is one hundred percent natural: coconut oil. 
I have compiled ten ways for
you to skip the beauty middle-man (and harsh chemicals) and create a brand new
beauty routine centered around coconut oil.
1: It is a top quality
moisturizer. Coconut oil has a high moisture retaining capacity, which acts as
an excellent source to fight dry skin. Make a moisturizing body scrub by
blending coconut oil with sugar.
2: Helps in the battle of
aging. Wrinkle- free yes, please.
3: Coconut oil is one of the
best oils for removing your makeup. It is perfect for removing stubborn eye
makeup. You can even use it to clean all of your makeup brushes.
4: It is the perfect tool to
use to penetrate into your locks, giving you a deep condition and regaining
shine. Leave it on your hair over night and wash it out in the morning. It will
help repair any damaged hair.
5: Get smooth and silky legs
by replacing your shaving cream with coconut oil. It will make your legs
hydrated without being greasy.
6: Treat dandruff and frizzy
hair by applying directly to your dry scalp.
7: Fight acne with coconut oil’s
antibacterial properties by combining it with baking soda to create an
exfoliating scrub. This will help your skin to heal quickly.
8: Make your very own
all-natural toothpaste. Mix baking soda with coconut oil and get the creamy
texture you are used to, without the chemicals.
9: Natural deodorant! You are
probably thinking “no way” but it can be used to kill body odor. Who knew?
10: Coconut oil is perfect
for cleaning your face after a long day, since it is antibacterial. Massage
into your skin and wash off the residue with your regular cleanser. It will
improve the quality and appearance of your skin by eliminating dead skin cells.
Making you look younger and healthier.
