Nine Best Coconut Oil Beauty Tips

Why is Coconut Oil so good for your skin?

Shop

Coconut oil is becoming increasingly popular for skin and body care, and for good reason.  It is an excellent moisturizer for the skin and it's naturally antibacterial and antifungal,  and it's good enough to eat. Coconut Oil is an edible oil and it is unique because it is one of the world’s richest sources of  lauric acid which has many health benefits to our skin.   What we put ON our body is just as important as what we put IN our body. Leave behind the chemicals and artificial fragrances found in conventional skin care products.  Coconut oil is wonderful for moisturizing skin and smoothing rough skin.  If you prefer a light scent to your body care products, essential oils make a great alternative to chemically produced fragrances, add a few drops to your coconut oil or use a coconut oil with essential oils already added.

1.  SKIN - Bring your skin back to its natural beauty!  If your skin is extremely dry or even starting to crack, coconut oil is one of the best remedies.  Coconut oil has incredible moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial properties.  Lauric acid, a saturated fatty acid found in coconut oil, helps retain moisture and penetrates deep into the skin.  It also has disinfectant and antimicrobial properties that greatly benefit our skin. 

How to use:  For healthy, radiant skin, apply coconut oil directly to the skin and massage gently.  Coconut oil is most effective when applied as a liquid.  Coconut oil will naturally begin to harden below 74 degrees F.  Store in a warm place  or run under warm water to quickly soften.  You only need a small amount of coconut oil to create a protective shield on your skin that will last for a long time.   Coconut oil is perfect for beautiful, soft skin.  Like every part of our body, skin responds to care and attention.

2.  HAIR - Coconut oil is a wonderful natural way to help your hair grow longer, thicker and faster.  It conditions and stimulates hair growth by penetrating deep into its follicles.  Rich in vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, the nourishing benefits of coconut oil for hair keeps your hair strong, shiny and healthy!

How to use:  For healthy and soft hair apply melted coconut oil to your scalp and massage into dry ends.  For a deep condition, put on before bed and wash as usual in the morning.  To tame frizzy hair and flyaway's, rub a little coconut oil onto ends.  A little goes a long way, be sure you don't over apply, especially near the scalp.

3.  NAILS AND CUTICLES - Coconut oil contains many of the nutrients to keep your nails healthy and moisturized.  It also promotes nail growth.  Coconut oil is an effective treatment for revitalising rough and cracked cuticles and helps soothe painful hangnails and torn cuticles.

How to use:  DIY manicures are a great  (and cheap) way to give your hands and nails the care and attention they deserve.  Start with a high-quality exfoliating scrub and gently rub the exfoliator onto hands and nails, massage for a few minutes.  Wash off under warm water and dry hands.   Massage coconut oil onto hands and nails, focusing on cuticles.  Your nails and cuticles will be stronger and healthier.  Your hands will never felt so soft or smelt so delicious.

4.  FEET AND ROUGH HEELS - Often, we  neglect our feet which leaves the skin tough, dry and cracked.   Coconut Oil is a fantastic foot treatment.  Not only is coconut oil a natural moisturizer, it is also a natural sanitizer and helps to kill germs that could lead to infection.

How to use:  Luxury DIY pedicures are an excellent and simple way to relax and soften your feet.  Add a teaspoon of coconut oil to a warm foot bath, mix well and soak feet for a few minutes.  Try adding a few drops of lavender essential oil for its calming and relaxing properties.  Apply a high quality exfoliator to your feet and massage for a few minutes, emphasizing on dry and cracked areas.  Wash feet and apply fresh coconut oil to your feet.  Your feet will feel softer and smoother than ever.  Repeat the same process regularly for beautiful, healthy feet.

5.  LIPS - Cracked and dry lips caused by dry air, cold weather, and other harsh element can be painful and embarrassing.  Coconut oil is a great natural alternative to mass produced and commercial lip balms often made with harsh chemicals.  Coconut oil provides nourishment and hydration making the lip's delicate skin smoother and healthier.

How to use:   Apply coconut oil on your lips to keep them soft and nourished.  Before going to bed, apply coconut oil on the lips to replenish them throughout the night.  After only a few treatments you will have healthy and replenished lips.

6.  TEETH - Coconut oil can help you maintain healthy teeth and gums, assist in whitening teeth and improve oral health.  The lauric acid in coconut oil attacks harmful bacteria in the mouth that can cause bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease.  Oil pulling is an increasingly popular way to use coconut oil for your teeth. Some people believe that toxins and bacteria building up in the mouth can be drawn out through the use of oil. 

How to use:  It is simply done by swishing a tablespoon of coconut oil (preferably melted) in your mouth for 5-15 minutes, pushing and pulling it between teeth, then spitting it out (not in the sink or in your toilet, in the trash is best.)  Make sure you do not swallow it.  The purpose of this process is to kill harmful bacteria and assist in oral health.  Basically, it is a mouth wash using coconut oil.  For fresher breath, use a coconut oil infused with organic peppermint oil.At first you may find this process a little strange; however, most people adjust to the taste and the sensation after just a few days.  Oil pulling should not be used as a replacement for your current oral care. You should still see a dentist regularly and brush your teeth at least twice per day.

How to use:  Rub a small amount of melted coconut oil onto your sunburn and repeat as needed to soothe and nourish the skin.  For a deep moisture treatment packed with antioxidants and extra Vitamin E, add macadamia nut oil to your coconut oil.  It will further soothe the burn and speed recovery.

9.  BEARD AND FACIAL HAIR - Coconut oil is excellent for facial hair. It's not greasy like other oils and because it is high lauric acid, it is able to penetrate your skin more effectively. Beards require moisture in order to grow healthy. Coconut oil nourishes and softens facial hair and helps soothe the dry skin under facial hair that causes irritation and itchy skin. 

How to use:  Apply a small amount of melted coconut oil in your hands and gently massage into facial hair and feel the goodness. Regular use will promote healthy beard growth and protect it from damage.  Your beard will be thicker, stronger, well-conditioned and have a healthy shine.
