Beauty Side of Coconuts

Everyone’s Coco for {COCO} Nuts

The use of coconut oil has finally become a fad in the Western cultures after spending decades as a secret power fruit of the East. There are are so many beauty hacks to use with this superfood!

  1. As shaving cream: Apply a thin layer of the coconut oil on the region of your body that you would like to shave. Whether it be your legs, or even face for men! The oil will nourish the body, and act as a barrier between the razor and the skin so that the blade glides over the hairs. Unlike your typical shaving creams, it wont dry out your skin or foam up, but will hydrate your body more.
  2. Remove your eye makeup: Mascara and eyeliner can be some of the toughest makeups to remove. Traditional makeup removers are oil based in order to take the waxy substance off, but coconut oil is a more natural alternative. A small amount in your palm, swab it across your eyelids. Once you rub it through and rinse your face, the makeup will be gone, and you can grab some zzz’s without waking up raccoon eyed.
  3. Skin Moisturizer: Lather on your skin before or after a shower to keep skin soft. Especially during the winter months.
  4. Lip Balm: Better than Chapstick and other petroleum based lip balms that dry out your skin.
  5. Cuticle Softener: Rub over your cuticles to keep them soft and healthy before trimming.
  6. Teeth Whitener: Use it just like you would toothpaste (but not instead off!!)
  7. Hair Masks: With all the heat damage we put on our hair with straighteners, curling wands, and dye jobs, we need to restore the protein properties in our hair. Simply melting coconut oil and massaging it into your hair and scalp will keep it healthy and nourished. The longer you leave it the better, overnight with a shower cap or a towel covered pillow and you’re good to go.
