Coconut oil seems to be the latest craze in the fitness and beauty world. But there is so much more you can use coconut oil for. I use it religiously for the following:
1. Make up remover
Rub coconut oil into your hands and then rub onto your face. Wipe off using a cotton wool pad. The warmth of your hands will melt the oil. The best part – you know there is no added chemicals to harm your skin. It’s a win win.
2. Healthy popcorn topping
Use coconut oil as a healthy alternative to salt and butter! It tastes delicious 😍
3. Keeping eggs fresh
Simply spread the coconut oil on the outer shell and it adds a couple of extra days of freshness! Don’t leave it too long, though.
4. Cooking oil
Not only does it add extra flavour to your food but it’s the healthier option – just do not use too much, it’ll then become unhealthy. Coconut oil is only healthy in doses, like fruit!
Apply every night before bed and use as a night moisturiser. It initially feels greasy but in the morning once it has absorbed into the skin, it feels fabulous.
6. Lock in moisture after showering
If you have dry skin anywhere on your body, using coconut oil after having a shower will lock in the moisture. Simply pat your body dry with a towel and then add to the dry area, allow time for the skin to absorb and then continue with your day.
7. Cellulite reduction
Use coconut oil to maintain cellulite reduction. Please see blog post Cellulite blaster to see how to reduce cellulite.
9. Massage Oil
Sometimes a massage is just what you need to take the stresses of life away. Why not get your beau to massage you with coconut oil? It smells amaaaazing and does the same job as normal massage oil whilst moisturising!
10. Nail maintenance
Do you wear acrylic nails? Or are your nails looking a little dry? Try coconut oil on your cuticles and over the top of your nails this should make the cuticles and the nail stronger.
11. Reducing stretch marks
Rubbing coconut oil on the affected areas have been known to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. It heals the damaged tissue and helps to rebuild. Give it a try ☺
12. Anti frizz hair solution
Do you have frizzy hair?
After drying your hair, add a small amount of coconut oil to the middle and ends of your hair and leave overnight then style the next day. Only do this after washing to prevent your hair going greasy too quickly. Your hair should be silky and smooth.
13. Hair serum
You can also use this as a hair serum to give your hair that extra shine. Simply add to ends of your hair after styling.
