Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is known to help to reduce moisture loss via pores due to its natural composition of saturated fat. If you're prone to acne or have very oily skin, try adding a few drops to your normal moisturizer instead to amp up hydration without adding too much extra oil.
Seven Ways use of Coconut oil for Beauty
1. Dry and Damaged Hair Treatment
For starters, coconut oil can work wonders for dry, damaged, and frizzy hair. The fatty acids soften your hair, and trap the moisture inside. The best way to apply it is to rub a small amount between your hands then apply it to your hair from roots to ends. Wrap your hair in a towel for at least 15 minutes and then follow with a gentle shampoo. It'll leave your hair feeling smooth and silky!
2. Makeup Remover
Coconut oil is a great way to break down any waterproof mascara or heavy eye makeup. Use a cosmetic cotton pad and rub some coconut oil into it. Then continue to use it as a makeup remover, getting at any waterproof eyeliner or mascara. After you’ve softened everything up with the oil, wash your face with a gentle face wash to get the remainders of the oil out.
3. Body Scrub
Combine a tablespoon of coconut oil with a tablespoon of ground coffee, and you’ve got a great body scrubbing mix! Keep with that ratio when creating bigger batches. Some other alternatives to exfoliants other than ground coffee are ground sea salt and sugar.
4. Body moisturizer
Say hello to the new body lotion - as strange as it sounds, coconut oil is a great way to moisturize your skin. When you hop out of the shower, ditch the chemical filled body lotion for a thin layer of coconut oil to lock the moisture in. Bonus: you smell like coconuts!
5. Carrier oil with Essential Oil
For massage, apply a small amount of coconut oil add few drops of essential oil rub it into the palms of your hands and massage whole body.
6. Shaving Balm
Smooth over a thin layer of coconut oil onto your legs before shaving to trap that moisture in and leave your legs feeling as smooth as a baby's bottom.
