Coconut oil is the king of all the natural oils. Not only it is considered superfood due to its abilities that help to lose extra weight and boost metabolism, it is also irreplaceable in cosmetics. Below, you will find 5 most popular and best uses for coconut oil.
1. Hair oiling
Coconut oil in the form of a mask applied to the skin and hair will be perfect for everyone who has heavy hair that lacks volume without the threat of overburdening it with inappropriate cosmetics. Coconut oil will not only cleanse the scalp and help get rid of excess sebum but it will lift the hair at the roots which will result in increased volume and weightless feel. It is definitely worth checking which products with coconut oil content are most recommended and include them into your daily routines.
2. Makeup removal
Coconut oil is perfect for removing traces of cosmetics: it cleanses the skin, it has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, and at the same time rejuvenates and helps fight acne. Apply coconut oil on your face, give it a gentle massage, and then, wash it with a moist, muslin cloth.
3. Mouth hygiene – coconut oil pulling
Coconut oil is recommended for maintaining proper oral hygiene due to its antibacterial properties. It works better than most mouthwashes. What’s more, if used regularly, it will brighten your teeth.
4. Coconut oil bath
Coconut oil added to your bath works as a moisturising body lotion or a lotion for soothing irritations. After placing the solid oil into the warm water, it changes into liquid and is able to take a great care of your entire body during and after the bath.
5. Body Peel
Smooth skin just within minutes? It is possible: it’s enough if you have coconut oil and brown sugar at home. The oil should be left at room temperature for a while so that it is not too hard. Then, mix it with brown sugar. Such a combination not only peels and smoothes the skin, but also – thanks to the wonderful properties of coconut oil – will work like a detox.
