20 Beauty Uses of Coconut Oil

Many beauty products can be over-priced, filled with chemicals and clog the storage in our bathrooms. Although it can be super fun and useful to get the next best thing, sometimes the most effective and efficient beauty products are those that are natural. After all, the earth does have all that we need to sustain ourselves in a healthy way. Coconut oil is one of those magical natural discoveries that can be used for a multitude of beauty uses.

 

1. Hair Mask

Simply apply coconut oil to wet or dry hair, and leave on for 15-30 minutes, then wash out. Mix it with olive oil, egg, avocado if you want to get real fancy.

2. Skin Moisturizer

Coconut oil is all natural and safe for your face. Other moisturizers have fillers and a lot of water, so for a quick and intensive moisturizer, reach for the coconut instead.

3. Dental Hygiene

Put about a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth, and swish it around for 10-20 minutes. It can help to whiten your teeth, prevent cavities, and freshen your breath.

4. Body Scrub

Mix with coffee and soap to a moisturizing body scrub

5. Makeup Remover

Just a little bit goes a long way, so just add a pinch to the end of a cotton swab or tissue and remove eye makeup naturally

6. Moisturizing Skin Mask

Apply coconut oil to your face after cleansing and leave it one for 15-30 minutes, then rinse. Your face will feel refreshed and deeply moisturized.

7. Deep Conditioner

Apply in the shower either alone, or mixed with your conditioner for an added moisturizing boost. Leave on for 5-15 minutes then rinse.

8. Natural Tanning Oil

Little SPF protection, but less expensive and more natural than many tanning oil alternatives

9. Shaving Cream

Ditch the overpriced foaming soap, and apply coconut oil in the shower for a shaving cream that will leave you razor-bump free

10. De-Frizz Your Hair

Add a pinch to the ends of your hair to tame frizz and treat dryness

11. Heal Chapped Lips and canker sores

Mix with a pureed fruit or apply by itself to create a natural lip balm

12. Relieve itching from eczema, severe dry skin or bug bites

Apply coconut oil directly to a bug bite or cracked skin for healing and moisturizer

13. Heal cracked feet

Place coconut oil in a tub and soak or in socks, and wear overnight to heal cracked heels

14. Whiten Teeth

Combine with baking soda for a deep cleaning and whitening smile

15. Clear Dandruff and Lice

Apply coconut oil to your scalp, scrub and heal the scalp as well as reduce the flakiness

16. Lip Scrub

Mix coconut oil with sugars, and even an essential oil for soft lips

17. Reduce Acne

When used as a spot treatment, mixed with lemon and turmeric coconut oil can reduce acne, dark spots and inflammation

18. Deodorant

Mix with essential oil, baking soda, and cornstarch for a natural replacement to antiperspirants

19. Eye Cream

Mix coconut oil with almond oil and Vitamin E oil to reduce and prevent fine line and wrinkles as well as lighten dark circles

20. Reduce and prevent stretch marks

Apply coconut oil to affected places such as hips or bellsy for those pregnant mamas before, during and after weight gain or loss to prevent and heal stretch marks
