Here are 4 ways to use coconut oil in your daily healthy living routine:


Moisturizer


Coconut oil can be found as an ingredient in many beauty products on the market. Pure coconut oil acts as an exceptional skin lotion that moisturizes and nourishes your skin. Coconut oil contains powerful antioxidants that help to fight the signs of aging. You can use coconut oil daily to diminish the signs of wrinkles. Simply apply as you would your regular moisturizer for smooth and healthy looking skin.


Makeup Remover


Removing makeup, including stubborn eye makeup has never been easier when you use coconut oil. Simply apply the oil to a cotton ball or tissue to quickly remove makeup. Even waterproof mascara is no match for coconut oil, as the oil is able to break up water-resistant makeup to be easily removed from the skin. An additional plus is that when you use coconut oil to remove your makeup, you are getting its moisturizing benefits too. Coconut oil is extremely gentle, but be careful to avoid getting it in your eyes, as it could cause mild irritation.

Hair Conditioner


Coconut oil is made up of medium-chain essential fatty acids that allow the oil to penetrate the hair more thoroughly than commercial conditioners. Using coconut oil will give you smooth and silky hair. The oil effectively treats the hair strands to end frizzy hair. You can use coconut oil as part of your usual shampooing routine, or leave it in longer before rinsing out to get a deep conditioning. This will repair split ends, help maintain a healthy scalp, and provide beautiful shine to your hair.


Healing Agent for Skin


Coconut oil helps to heal cuts on the skin and contains antibacterial properties that will help to prevent skin infection. The oil can be used as a helpful treatment for skin acne. It is also an effective treatment for skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. The oil actually helps to repair skin cells because it promotes the production of collagen. It can be used to relieve other skin irritations like sunburn and diaper rash.

If you are looking for a natural beauty product with a variety of uses, coconut oil is a healthy, effective solution. Not only does it provide you with healthy looking skin and hair, it has significant healing properties that make it one of the best skin and hair care products on the market.
