Coconut Oil Uses

Coconut oil can be used for a lot more than just cooking. It actually has several beauty benefits that I think everyone should know about! It’s things you can incorporate into your everyday routine, it’s amazing because it’s so versatile. P1040379 P1040381 P1040385

Haircare

Oil treatment – apply root to tip, brush your hair and leave in for 15 mins (or I leave it in overnight) before washing it out.

Dandruff treatment – massage oil into your roots and leave for a few mins before shampooing.

Frizz tamer – apply to the ends of your hair or lightly over strands.

Skincare

Shaving balm – apply to legs before shaving.

Moisturiser – smooth over your body or even use as a lip balm.

Night cream – apply mixed with your moisturiser.

Eye makeup remover – place on a cotton bud and gently go over your eyes.

Highlighter – apply a light layer to the tops of your cheeks to get that summer glow.

Body scrub – mix oil with brown sugar over a low heat, add some essential oils then allow to cool before applying it.

Face mask – mix with honey and leave it on your skin for 20 minutes.

    I absolutely love coconut oil and use it for pretty much everything! I struggle with very dry skin and it doesnt react well to anything, even products that claim they are ‘natural’. Coconut oil has been a life saver for me because of this.
    The one use I hadn’t seen before was as a highlighter which is so cool! Thanks for a brilliant blog post about one my favourite things!

    I also use it as a hair mask – coat the ends of your hair in the oil, leave for 10-20 minutes and shampoo & condition as normal!
