Hi guys today i thought of listing down some unique ways to use coconut oil. Coconut oil in India is used for many purpose starting from cooking to beauty , this is one of the best natural product with many health and beauty benefits.
USE AS MOISTURIZER:
Using coconut oil as a moisturizer for your face and body, it absorbs quickly, and is non-greasy. At room temperature, coconut is a solid, but it quickly melts when it comes into contact with hands.I normally apply coconut oil on my face and body before taking bath and leave it for 15 to 20 mins and take bath with hot water it works wonders.
Even you can use it before bed apply little on your face let sit for 5 minutes, and then wipe off
NATURAL MAKEUP REMOVER:
Just a small dab of coconut oil will quickly remove eye makeup, making it easy to wipe off. Rub coconut oil gently onto the upper lids and lower lids in a circular motion. Wipe off with a warm cloth. It removes all makeup from face leaving it nicely moisturized.
SOOTHING AFTER SHAVE:
If razor burn, ingrown hairs, or other skin irritation is a problem after shaving, start using pure coconut oil as your shaving “cream”. Warm a dab in the palm of your hands and rub on your face, under arms, on the legs, or the bikini area and then shave. Rinse well, and pat dry.
SUNSCREEN AND SUNBURN REMEDY:
Coconut oil is an all natural sunscreen and sunburn remedy, all in one. In fact, it is SPF 4, just enough to protect against sun damage. Reapply as necessary, throughout the day. If you get too much sun, gently rub coconut oil into affected areas and it will promote healing, and soothe the pain.
Coconut oil is a soothing and conditioning massage oil. Add a couple of drops of lavender oil and peppermint oil to help heal sore muscles, and stimulate mindful relaxation.
NATURAL HAIR CONDITIONER:
Using coconut oil for hair conditioning has been used for thousands of years to strengthen and style hair. As a moisturizer, coconut oil can help strengthen hair while helping hair to retain moisture. Warm in the palms of your hands, and starting at the ends, work the oil into the hair.
USE AS HIGHLIGHTER:
Try using coconut in place of makeup to add shine to your cheek bones and eye lids. This gives you a natural youthful glow and requires no make up, make up removal, or extra expensive products to purchase.
STRETCH MARK REDUCER:
Try rubbing coconut oil all over the stomach during and after pregnancy to reduce unsightly stretch marks that occur when skin’s elasticity is compromised. The oil helps to fade dark marks, discoloration, and redness plus it hydrates the skin and allows it heal more quickly.
Use coconut oil on wood, granite counter tops, and metal surfaces to give your furniture and updates and clean, shiny look. At the same time this will help reduce dusk, cover up scratches, and clean your furniture and home surfaces too.
Coconut oil’s unique nutrition profile that is rich with lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid provides for strong antiviral, antifungal, antimicrobial, and antibacterial properties that have an immune boosting effect. By fighting these elements present in the body, the immune system is better equipped to respond properly when attacked.
