It’s a cult favorite ingredient that even A-list celebrities prefer coconut oil over overly pricey beauty products. Not only is it effective and affordable, it also has a lot of different uses it has under its belt. Here are some of the many uses of coconut oil when it comes to beauty.

 

Fresh breath 

Oil pulling is a widely popular beauty routine because of the positive effects it gives to our dental health. Rolling around a dollop of coconut oil in our mouth for 10 to 15 minutes is said to guarantee whiter teeth and healthier gums. Consequently, when the teeth and gums are healthy, fresher breath is also to be observed.

 

Makeup remover

Why do you need to spend so much money on makeup removers that break the bank when you can have an organic and cheaper alternative in coconut oil? Even stubborn waterproof mascara is easily removed when you use coconut oil. Get a few drops of coconut oil in your palm, rub it for a few seconds and directly apply it to the skin like a regular cleanser. If this method is too messy for you, you can soak a cotton pad in coconut oil before applying to your face and neck.

 

Body moisturizer

During lazy days spent at home, swap your regular body lotion with an all-natural coconut oil alternative. This versatile oil is a great moisturizer and the smell will make it seem like you’re in a spa.

Shaving cream

Your regular shaving cream is a mix of different chemicals, some of which can irritate skin and are not really necessary. Go back to the basics and use a coconut oil as your shaving cream. Its antimicrobial properties soothe the skin and keeps it free from scarring and irritation.

 

Hair conditioner

Sometimes, our hair just needs some TLC in order to remain in its best condition. For dry and dull hair, heat up some coconut oil in your microwave and apply it to your hair to serve as a hot oil treatment. After applying all over, pile your hair in a loose bun and cover it with a shower cap for a couple of minutes. Coconut oil has deep moisturizing properties that prevent protein loss in hair.

 

Organic massage oil

Coconut oil is present in most of store-bought massage oils. Why not cut the cost by using 100 percent coconut oil for a relaxing rubdown? It’s healthy for the skin, slippery and incredibly moisturizing. Furthermore, coconut oil is abundant in vitamin E, which is a nutrient that should be your skin’s best friend because of its amazing rejuvenating properties.
