Benefits of Coconut Oil in your Beauty Routine.

You may have already made the switch to coconut oil in the kitchen, but did you know you can also swap out some of your beauty products for this beauty hack. Coconut Oil is super healthy and has a great scent. This ingredient can be used to moisturize skin and remove make-up and many more… Here are all the ways you can incorporate coconut oil into your beauty routine (until we discover more!). 

Use it as a Hair Mask 
Coconut oil is amazing for your hair, and because it is all natural you can leave it in your hair for as long as you want. One way, could be to leave the coconut oil in the hair and let it work overnight, and cleanse it out in the morning. This is a great way to moisturize any damaged hair. It will leave your hair with a silky smooth feel and a scent of coconut. 

Moisturize your skin 
As a solid, coconut oil's creamy texture makes it the perfect light moisturizer to lather all over. Apply a quarter sized amount right after you get out of the shower so it can sink into your warm skin. The light tropical scent that lingers after it's applied. Add in a few drops of peppermint or lavender oil for a massage mix.  

Unchap those lips 
Your chapped lips don't have a chance with that coconut oil! Just use those fingers to dab and smear it all over. Just pour some into a small container, and carry it on.  

Natural Make-Up Remover
Coconut oil can also be used as a great make-up remover. Apply the oil on a cotton ball, and wipe away any make-up. This even works on waterproof mascara, while hydrating the eyelashes and under eye area. 

So you don’t have any shaving cream…and you need to shave those hairy legs..? Coconut oil to the rescue! Just warm the jar under the water and smooth onto legs before shaving. Your razor will glide smoothly, allowing for a super-close shave, and your legs will be moisturized from the oil in the process. Tip: shave outside the shower. The oil is very slippery, so you'll have an easier time holding onto your razor if your hands are dry.

So let's be resourceful and start being natural.
