6 Surprising Ways You Can Use Coconut Oil In Your Beauty Regime
We all know that coconut oil is amazing for our skin, hence why we flock to it in the Summer to hydrate our sun-soaked skin after a day at the beach. But do you know what else it can do for you beauty regime? Listen up ladies.
We kid you not, you can use coconut oil as a natural highlighter on your face, just above your cheekbones. All you need is a smidgen and it’ll give you a lovely natural glow. It’s the base ingredient in a lot of natural highlighter on the market so why not just take it straight from the jar.
2. Shave your legs
Shaving foams and cheap soaps are filled with chemicals, so try shaving with coconut oil. It won’t leave your legs greasy but it will leave them hydrated and glossy, and smell delicious!
If you hair is looking rather dry, put a dollop of oil into your hair and sleep on it over night. The oil will penetrate the hair easily and prevent protein loss.
4. Remove makeup
Coconut oil is a dab hand at removing waterproof mascara and other waxy products. Just use with a cotton pad and wash your face as normal after!
5. Tame hair
Much the same as you would use any serum in your hair to tame your fly-aways, put a pea sized drop in your hands and smooth over your locks for a glossy finish.
Mix coconut oil with a little brown sugar and you’ll create a natural body scrub that’s super sensitive on your skin. It will also hydrate your skin at the same time!
