To Soothe Dry Hands
Coconut oil can work wonders on dry parched hands. Keep a jar of pure coconut oil handy and quickly dab a little coconut oil to keep your hands soft and moist.
As a Deep Conditioner
According to research, coconut oil penetrates hair like no other oil and prevents protein loss from hair roots. Apply warm coconut oil to the roots and wrap them with a hot towel for deeper penetration of the oil.
To Remove Eye Makeup
Coconut oil even works on waterproof mascara. Pour a little oil on a cotton ball and gently sweep it over the eyes. The oil does a great job of cleaning waxy eye makeup and also leaves the delicate areas around the eyes hydrated.
As a Body Moisturizer
Coconut oil smells delicious and is affordable too. When applied on the body it effectively increases hydration especially for those with dry skin. Scrubs available in the market are loaded with chemicals. Add some sugar crystals or oats to coconut oil and use this scrub all over the body for a nourished and smooth skin.
To Shave Your Legs
Ditch those expensive shaving creams that are nothing but a cocktail of chemicals that leave you with painful rashes. Natural coconut oil on the other hand is inexpensive, naturally antimicrobial and smells divine. Also its skin soothing properties will leave your legs look hydrated.
Go natural… Opt for pure coconut oil for healthy and happy skin.
