Get Gorgeous with Coconut Oil

August 13, 2013

Coconut oil is without a doubt an all-purpose beauty product that does every thing from get rid of dandruff to soften rough, dry skin. Here are just ten reasons to go out and buy a jar right now. 

1. Use oil as a cheekbone highlighter for a bright, fresh complexion. Swipe a tiny amount over makeup and go. 
2. Instead of using the chemical-laden shaving creams from the drugstore, shave with coconut oil. 
3. Coconut oil makes an excellent hot oil treatment for hair. 
4. Put a little on a cotton ball or pad and sweep over eyes to remove troublesome waterproof mascara and waxy eye makeup. 
5. Coconut oil is antibacterial and antifungal, so you can actually use it as an oil cleanser if you have particularly dry skin. Rub in a circular motion all over face and neck, rinse, then use your favorite cleanser to remove excess. 
6. Rub a small amount between palms and lightly smooth over hair to fight frizz and tame flyaways.
7. Mix coconut oil with brown sugar and a few drops of vanilla extract to create a body scrub that smells good enough to eat.
8. Pack into a small tin container and use as a lip balm for a soft, supple pout.
9. Mix with baking soda for an all natural toothpaste. 
10. Coconut oil is a great eye cream, and unlike the creams you purchase at the beauty counter, can be used on eyelids as well as under your eyes.
