Benefits of coconut oil
Posted By SkinnyMe Chocolate
And these days, people are coming up with a ton of great uses for this superfood outside of the kitchen.
Considered one of the most-obsessed beauty staples of today, here are 5 great uses for nature's favorite oil:
1. Intensive hair conditioner
Coconut oil can work wonders for dry, damaged hair. Rub a small amount of coconut oil between your hands and then apply it your hair from roots to ends, one section at a time. Then rinse it off in the shower, or leave it on for a natural frizz-fighter.
2. Makeup remover
Coconut oil can take off the most stubborn mascara with ease. It's extremely hydrating and great for your eye area, helping work against fine lines and wrinkles.
3. Night cream
The fatty acids within coconut oil can help reinforce the skin's natural lipid barrier, helping to lock moisture into the skin. Slather it on as a night cream and promote your facial skin hydration overnight.
4. Body balm
Mix some coconut oil with shea butter to create your own body balm. Or go the other route and mix it with sugar for an exfoliating body scrub.
5. Cuticle oil
Due to the lubricating nature of coconut oil, using it as a cuticle oil is a no-brainer. It's got anti-fungal properties and would be great for fingers and toes. It can also help make your nails stronger.
