We know that there are a great many benefits in adding organic coconut oil to your diet, as we have covered this in previous blogs many times (but just as a reminder consuming coconut oil gives you a dose of healthy fats which can be good for adding healthy cholesterols to your system, helping you in some instances lose weight, reduce the risk of Alzheimer`s, protect your vital organs, improve digestion and your oral health etc). But it is also great when used as part of your beauty regime.
Organic Coconut Oil As A Beauty Product
One of the best things about adding it to your beauty regime is that you are using a natural product. So many cosmetics have ingredients in them that should for the most part be used with great care, or not at all to be honest. At the very least by using organic coconut oil you know you are in safe hands.
But more than that, coconut oil has so many properties that lends itself to being one of the best beauty products around. The Times Of Oman website has a very good article on this very subject where they share 10 ways you can use organic coconut oil as part of your beauty regime. We will share the first 5 with you here but you can go to the link above to read about the other 5 if you wish:
`Scalp conditioning – Forget fancy conditioners and scalp treatment oils; treat dry scalp and dandruff with some warm coconut oil. Massage it in and let it soak for at least an hour before washing your hair. If you are looking for a more intensive therapy, you could also wrap your hair in a towel and leave it overnight.
Makeup remover – Face caked with layers of makeup? All you need is some coconut oil and cotton. Put a generous amount of coconut oil on your cotton and simply wipe clean. The best thing about using coconut oil as opposed to other makeup removers is that it actually hydrates the skin and leaves it soft and supple. Just wash off with water – no aggressive scrubbing required.
Lip balm – Nothing works on dried lips like coconut oil. And no, you don’t need to worry about spills as it can retain the perfect semi-solid state in normal temperatures. Store it in a pocket-friendly jar or even your contact lens container so you can carry it around wherever you go. A perfect trick to make the most of lip colour and coconut oil is to scoop out the remaining bits of your lipstick and mix it with coconut oil; you’ll have your very own tinted lip gloss.
Highlighter – Want to achieve the perfect dewy look? Work it with some coconut oil. Take a small amount on your fingertips and sweep it over your cheekbones after you are done with your usual makeup. It’ll look natural, it isn’t harmful to your skin, and it’ll give a beautiful sheen to your cheekbones.
Foundation base – Coconut oil works wonderfully as a primer too. That’s pretty much why a lot of makeup brands even have this secret ingredient in their product. Just that you can skip the other harmful ingredients and go absolutely organic with coconut oil. Take a little on your palms and apply all over your face. Just ensure it’s not a very heavy layer.`
