10 Amazing Beauty Tricks With Coconut Oil

With one bottle, you can solve 10 of your beauty problems...naturally

To Soothe Dry Hands

This won't work for dry digits when you're on the go, but at home, coconut oil can work wonders on your dishwashing-parched hands.

"I keep a jar of organic extra virgin coconut oil by the kitchen sink and put a little on after washing my hands to keep them soft and moist."

And if you cook with coconut oil, you can substitute it for butter in baking recipes because it’s solid at room temperature, scoop out a little extra for your hands, too.

"Whenever I cook with coconut oil, I make sure to moisturize my hands with it too."

As a Cheekbone Highlighter

Nothing perks up a tired face like a little highlighter, but you don't need store-bought products to achieve the same effect.

Simply sweep a small amount of coconut oil on top of makeup and leave it alone.

It looks like your skin but glowier, which is why many natural makeup brands use it as a base ingredient in their formulas.

To Shave Your Legs

Conventional shaving cream is an expensive cocktail of chemicals that you don't need to get a nice clean shave on your legs or underarms.

Coconut oil, on the other hand, is inexpensive, naturally antimicrobial, and smells divine.

Plus, its skin-soothing properties will leave your legs looking hydrated (but never greasy).

As a Deep Conditioner

There's a reason many conditioners contain coconut oil: It's better able to penetrate hair (and prevent protein loss) than mineral and sunflower oil, according to research.

"I like to use it in my hair and on my skin for deep conditioning."

Apply a quarter-size dollop to your hair, comb it, and then pile it into a loose bun.

You'll want to place a soft towel over your pillow or sleep in a shower cap.

In the morning, shampoo as usual with a gentle cleanser.

To Remove Eye Makeup

Yes, coconut oil even works on waterproof mascara!

Put a little on a cotton ball and gently sweep it over your eyes, paying attention to your under-eyes as well.

The oil does a great job breaking down waxy, inky eye makeup, and leaves the delicate area hydrated, too.

Once you're done, wash your face as usual.

As a Body Moisturizer

A recent animal study found that when applied topically, virgin coconut oil can speed up wound healing, and a human study found it to be effective in increasing hydration and reducing water loss in seriously dry skin.

Sounds like a recipe for a really good lotion to us!

"It smells delicious, is very affordable, and leaves my skin feeling nourished and smooth."

To Clean and Hydrate Your Face

Because coconut oil is naturally antibacterial, antifungal, moisturizing and, according to research, great for atopic dermatitis, many women swear by its use as a nighttime moisturizer for their face, too.

Try the double-cleansing method: Simply rub the oil in circular motions all over your face and neck, giving yourself a gentle massage as you go.

When you're done, wash off the residue with your favorite cleanser. (If you're adult-acne prone, avoid this technique unless you know your skin tolerates coconut oil.)

Add Some Shine

Smooth a tiny amount of coconut oil onto your hair ends to add a little shine, or on flyaways if you have dark hair.

Remember that a dab will do you: Any more and your hair might appear greasy.

In a Luxurious Body Scrub

Here's a little DIY beauty secret: That store-bought body scrub you save for special occasions?

It's a waste of money.

That's because you can make one yourself with ingredients you already have in your kitchen.

"I love to do this. It's wonderfully moisturizing, great for the skin, inexpensive, and blissfully absent of chemicals you can't pronounce!"

To make your own, I suggest melting 1/2 c of coconut oil at very low heat.

Pour it over 1 c of brown sugar or salt and stir well.

If you have some on hand, add in five drops of your favorite essential oil or some pure vanilla extract for a scrub so fragrant you'll want to eat it.

For a Massage

Many store-bought massage oils have either coconut or jojoba oil as their base.

Cut out the middleman and go straight to your bottle of coconut oil.

It's slippery, skin-friendly, and moisturizing, too.

Unfortunately, that's all the time we have today, so next time you're in pain, head to your kitchen.

We wish you and your family the very best in health and happiness!
