We all have heard from our grandmothers the benefits of coconut oil and their uses. Coconut oil has been used for ages now in every home. This is a must-have staple product in almost every house. Coconut oil can be used for skin, hair, and cooking. Apart from its skin and hair benefit, coconut oil also carries many health benefits.
There are many ways through which we can use coconut oil for beauty benefits. Here are 4 beauty uses of coconut oil which I follow.
I was aware of the benefits of coconut oil for hair but I was never sincere in using it. My hair was dry, rough and has got split ends and then I started using coconut oil regularly. Apply the night before you have to wash your hair. I apply coconut oil in the night and the other day I just wash it off with regular shampoo. Sometimes I just dabbed the coconut oil on the ends of my hair. It helps in getting rid of frizzy ends. After using regularly, I have seen the difference in my hair. It has become more smooth and soft now.
2. Aftershave moisturizer
Massage your hand and leg with coconut oil after you shave to get rid of ingrown hairs. Instead of using any lotion, I found coconut oil very useful as it smoothes the skin. It’s been 2 months since I have used coconut oil as aftershave moisturizer and it really makes your skin smooth.
3. Makeup remover
Coconut oil is the best DIY for removing makeup. I started coconut oil as a makeup remover when my make up remover got empty and I thought let’s give coconut oil a try and it really works wonder as a makeup remover. Just dab small amount of coconut oil into your face, massage it and remove it with the help of cotton and with this, your make up will also be removed.
4. Moisturizer for cracked heel
I apply it on my feet, especially on the cracked heels. Cracked heels are caused because of dryness and due to the greasy nature of coconut oil, it works wonderfully on the dry feet. Apply it before going to bed and wear socks so that the moisture gets absorbed in your feet.
These are the 4 beauty uses of coconut oil which I use in my skin and hair care routine. What are yours? Do let me know in the comment section how you use coconut oil.
