BEAUTY BENEFITS OF COCONUT OIL


Coconut oil has some of the most beneficial properties for both health, hair and skin. I'm going to share with you some of the wonderful beauty benefits this oil offers.

MAKEUP REMOVER: 
I just finished using up a huge jar of coconut oil having used it for the main purpose of removing makeup. It was inexpensive, lasted for a long time and works very effectively. What I love most is it's excellence in removing eye makeup including water proof mascara and eye liner.

SKIN MOISTURIZER:
With out a doubt, coconut oil will quickly heal dry skin. Yes, it is "oily" upon application but as you rub the oil in and allow a couple minutes for your skin to soak up nutrients, it will feel amazingly soft and revived.  If you find it to oily, you can put on socks or gloves after applying, leave them on overnight where you will wake to super soft skin.

FOR THE FACE:
Fatty acids contained in extra virgin coconut oil have proven to help reduce problematic acne far more effectively than benzoyl peroxide, commonly found in acne fighting products. Coconut oil helps reduce redness, is a protectant from the suns harmful rays, combats aging, age spots and wrinkles.

Will coconut oil clog pores? This really depends on your skin type. If you have large pores and tend to get black heads, coconut oil may clog your pores and it would be best to exfoliate before using.

HAIR REPAIR: 
Dry, damaged, dull and frizzy hair will meet it's match with this oil. I have medium to long hair and need no more than a teaspoon for each hair treatment. However, depending on your hair type you may need a larger amount of oil. You may choose to melt the oil in the microwave and then apply to hair or scoop into hand where the heat of your skin will quickly melt the solid oil. Gently work through hair, wrap in a towel or shower cap and leave in for up to 45 minutes. Shampoo well and condition as normal. Beneficial for a healthy scalp and prevents dandruff.

SHAVING: 
You don't need to buy shaving cream to get a close shave. Use coconut oil and you'll achieve better results with the most amazing super soft legs!

TEETH WHITENING:
Coconut oil is used to brighten and whiten teeth usually associated with the oral benefits of, "Oil pulling". Put a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth, swish and push though teeth for 15-20 minutes. Spit out and brush like normal. Avoid spiting it into the drain where is has potential to clog. Avoid swallowing as the oil as it will be filled with oral bacteria. The more often you do this, the better the results.
