Tips: Coconut Oil Beauty Uses!
The many uses of coconut oil...
Moisturizer / Night Cream (recommend for dry/normal)
Body Lotion/Oil (drier skin)
Help prevent stretch marks while pregnant (see above)
Natural SPF4 sunscreen
Lash / Brow Growth serum. (mix with castor oil)
Facial Mask (mix with honey for hydration + massage it in if you’re in a rush)
Natural Facial Exfoliant (use with brown sugar)
Lip balm / Chapstick
Helps psoriasis and eczema
Hair Mask (leave in a cap for 30 min-overnight)
Body Exfoliant (mix with salt or sugar)
At home Pedi? (mix with honey and sugar/salt to soften and get rid of dry heels)
Oil Pulling (google it, it can whiten teeth and improve gum health)
Natural Shaving Lotion
Massage in scalp with Castor Oil to stimulate hair growth (leave in over night with a cap for maximum results)
Anti-Frizz (use the tiniest amount on ends of hair)
Use on Cold Sores
Leave In Conditioner / Hair Oil on damp hair (mix with Argan oil)
Mix with Shea Butter for a richer Body Lotion
Dry skin? Apply some to your bare face before getting in the shower. Shower as usual then use a face wash to remove oil. Having the oil on will stop the hot water from stripping your natural oil / drying out your skin.
Mix with soap for a luxurious brush cleaner (olive oil too)
Mix 1 drop of each essential oil (lavender and tea tree) for athlete’s foot. (If serious see a doctor, get a store prescription)
*I recommend Jojoba oil in place of coconut oil if you have oily/combo oily skin. It’s closer to the oil we produce and is less comedogenic.
** When buying Coconut Oil look for unrefined.
