Coconut oil is one of the best things you can have in your beauty arsenal, because it works for absolutely everything from skin care to hair care. These 10 ways to use coconut oil are pure genius and LIFE CHANGING! So buy yourself a big jug of coconut oil and reap the amazing rewards.
10 Coconut Oil Uses:
#1. To Moisturize Hair
Use coconut oil in your hair to moisturize hair, keep away split ends, and keep your hair healthy. Warm up some coconut oil and apply all over hair, especially the ends. Wrap your hair up in a towel or a shower cap and leave on for 20-30 minutes or overnight. Wash out and repeat 2-3 times a week.
#2. To Keep Wrinkles Away
Apply coconut oil directly on wrinkles, and especially around the eyes. Do so before bed and leave on overnight. Use this method every night to keep wrinkles away and to get rid of them.
#3. To Get Rid of Chapped Lips
First, exfoliate your lips with this DIY vanilla lip scrub. Then, apply coconut directly to your lips and repeat as often as needed.
#4. To Moisturize Skin
Coconut oil is one of the best oils for skin, so skip all those expensive creams and just use coconut oil instead. Just rub it all over your skin after your shower – it will absorb super quickly and leave your skin feeling silky smooth!
#5. To Shave
Don't spend your hard earned cash on shaving cream – coconut oil does a much better job and will leave your skin way smoother! Just make sure you're very careful so you don't slip in the shower!
#6. To Get Soft Feet
Use coconut oil for soft feet by warming up some coconut oil and applying directly to your feet. Slip on a pair of socks and leave on overnight. Repeat as needed!
#7. As A Massage Oil
Warm up some coconut oil and use instead of a massage oil. It's much healthier for the skin and will also leave it silky smooth!
#8. To Remove Hair Frizz
Apply a very small amount of coconut oil in your palms and smooth gently over hair to get rid of frizz. This will also moisturize your hair!
#9. To Soften Hands
If you have rough, dry hands, coconut oil can fix that in a pinch! Rub coconut oil on your hands every night before bed for super soft hands. Or, heat up some coconut oil and apply it to your hands. Wear a pair of sleep gloves and leave on overnight!
#10. As a Deep Treatment
Mix coconut oil with castor oil as a deep treatment for your hair. Leave on for 30 minutes or even overnight and wash out. The results will blow you away!
