Did you know that one of the best products for your skin may already be in your kitchen cabinet? Keep reading to discover my top 5 beauty uses for coconut oil!
Body Oil: I use coconut oil before I leave the shower everyday. I warm it in my hands and apply it from head to toe. Then I do a final rinse in the shower to get rid of the excess so I am not oily. What does this leave me with? Soft and supple skin.
Face Lotion: Make no mistake about it, I also use coconut oil on my face. I follow that up with my favorite face moisturizer. As a makeup artist, I've noticed many people have dry facial skin. Think about it, your face never has clothes on. It is exposed to everything. It needs extra moisture. Make sure to give your face what it needs.
Makeup Remover: I also use coconut oil to cleanse my skin at night. I rub it and massage it into my face. Then I wipe it off with a warm towel. Be careful not to rub the coconut oil in your eyes!
Hair Conditioner: Coconut oil is an amazing hair conditioner! Sometimes I will warm it and apply it to my hair the night before I wash my hair. Make sure to sleep with a shower cap on otherwise you will be buying new pillow cases!
Hand Lotion: If your hands get dry in the winter time, you should apply coconut oil as lotion during the day. Your hands will thank me for it!
So what are you going to do this week? If you answered pick up some coconut oil, you are correct! If you follow any of this advice, please do let me know if it works for you. I'd love to hear about it.
