Beauty and Coconut oil: 7 Tips for a Glowing New You!
1. Shiny hair tresses
When you’re in the shower, melt your coconut oil under the flow of warm water. After using your regular shampoo, apply a generous amount of oil to your locks and then twist them into a bun. Let your hair absorb the oil for about 5 minutes and then rinse it off! Your mane will be more hydrated and shinier!
2. Smooth, perfumed body
When it’s solid, oil has a creamy texture which is perfect for your whole body. Apply some on your skin right after you leave the shower. It’s essential that your skin is still warm and moist. If you want a massage, you can mix in some peppermint or lavender oil. The incredible smell will relax you to sleep.
3. Sensual lips
You can use the coconut oil as a lip balm as well. If you have a tiny tin or a spare contact lens holder, scoop some coconut oil and take it with you everywhere. Say goodbye to chapped lips in the process, because coconut oil is ultra-super hydrating.
4. Bygone dry cuticles!
Use some of the oil on your dry cuticles and allow it to hydrate the area. The oil will also strengthen your nails. You can do this twice a week and witness the results!
5. No more dark circles
Never sleeping beauty and coconut oil is a good combo. If you’re not getting enough sleep and have dark undereye circles, you can use the same miracle ingredient for instant rejuvenation! First, warm a little bit of coconut oil between your fingers, and then pat it gently under your eyes!
6. Remove makeup
Just liquefy the oil under some warm water and then use it on your face. A teaspoon of it will make the makeup separate from the skin. Rinse your face with plenty of water.
7. No more frizz!
Warm up the oil – use as much as you need depending on the length and volume of your hair, but no more than one tablespoon, because it can grease up your hair. Then apply it to your locks, closer to the ends. If your hair is thick, you can apply the oil to the whole length of your tresses, but avoid the scalp!
