Updated: Jun 18
Benefits of coconut oil has been mentioned since the ancient Ayurvedic times because of its countless medicinal properties and fatty acids that are no less than a blessing for the health, skin, and hair. It has high amounts of saturated acids, which has made it perfect for treating my skin problems. Coconut oil is versatile and, thus, can be used in different ways. Coconut oil has been a staple in my beauty regime.So I thought that I will share some of the ways that I incorporate coconut oil in my daily essentials.
An ideal skin moisturizer. It is packed with fatty acids that are easily absorbed in the skin. On regular application, it has nourished my skin from within by treating flakiness and severe dryness. I use it for my entire body and face. For best results, I use organic cold pressed virgin coconut oil as it is free from chemicals and, over time it has even me a smooth, soft, radiant, and healthy skin.
HOW I USE IT:
I take some coconut oil in my palms.
The rub it between my palms.
Then apply it all over the dry body and massage it well for the best results.
For face – I gently dab it on my face 10 mins before taken shower.
I USE IT AS A BUDGET- FRIENDLY EYE CREAM SOMETIMES
HOW I USE IT :
I Wash my face first with mild face wash
I Pick a small amount of coconut oil on my fingers.
Dot it around the eye from inner to out corner.
Then I gently massage it in an anti-clock way before going to bed.
WORKS AS A MAKEUP REMOVER
Fatty acids present in coconut oil helps to melt the make-up and remove it without hurting my facial skin. I was amazed to see that it can even remove a waterproof lipstick and mascara as well. Moreover, it does not have chemicals; thus, it ideal for eyes and other sensitive parts of the face.
SOMETIMES WHEN I AM OUT OF MY MAKEUP REMOVER I USE IT :
I pour some coconut oil over the cotton pads.
Then dab it over my eye make-up.
Leave it for a second, and then gently remove the eye make-up.
I use cotton balls soaked in coconut oil to remove make-up from your entire skin.
I pick some coconut oil in my clean palms.
Apply it over my face and gently massage it for about a minute
Then with the help of the cotton balls, remove the make-up.
Wash face with a mild cleanser.
I USE IT TO EXFOLIATE MY BODY AND LIPS
Another skin benefit of coconut oil is that it is an excellent exfoliator. You can substitute it with your regular scrubs if you want to use budget friendly body scrubs. It helps me remove all the dust and debris trapped in the pores. It is bliss for my dry skin as it moisturises the skin and provides all the required nutrients. You can even use it for treating chapped lips and bidding adieu to dryness.
HOW I MAKE MY BODY SCRUB:
In a bowl, mix some coconut oil, sugar coffee powder.
Mix it well and apply all over the body after taking a warm shower.
Gently massage it over the skin.
Leave it for 3-4 minutes and then wash it with the water.
Do not use this scrub on the face as the facial skin is very soft compared to our body.
HOW I USE IT ON MY LIPS:
I apply the mixture on my clean lips.
Take a toothbrush with soft bristles.
Brush it over my lips.
Wipe off the leftover oil with a tissue paper.
Repeat the same on alternate days to get moisturized lips
