The Beauty of Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil has a bit of a craze surrounding it lately, with hundreds of different uses. I was skeptical at first, but once I tried a few of the many claims; not only does it have a permanent spot in my pantry, but now it also has a permanent spot in my medicine cabinet. Coconut Oil is naturally antibacterial and antifungal, ultimately moisturizing and smells delicious. Here are my top uses:

  • To Moisturize-softens and hydrates dry skin (my saving grace in the dry winter)
  • To Exfoliate- mixed with sugar, salt, and honey, this mixture exfoliates and hydrates, leaving the skin silky smooth (great for face and body)
  • As a Cuticle Oil- moisturizes and softens cuticles (perfect for when your hands need a little TLC)
  • To Treat Acne-antibacterial components gently fight against acne (ah-mazing!)
  • As a Lip Balm- hydrates and protects (best used before bed)
  • To Remove Makeup- effortlessly removes (key for mascara, be careful to not get it in your eye)
  • As a Hair Serum- smoothes and tames (a little goes a long way)
  • As a Hair Mask/Conditioner-great for added shine and silky texture
  • As a Shaving Oil- makes for a smooth shave, moisturizes and protects against razor burn
