Coconut Oil – The Amazing Benefits And Why You NEED To Start Using It

If there’s one beauty product that every girl needs, it’s coconut oil. Look at it as your all-in-one for just about anything.  It’s a natural antibacterial, antifungal oil, packed full of antioxidants that your skin AND your purse will love. By introducing this all-natural miracle oil into your beauty regime will help to reduce many of the toxic ingredients that your skin is exposed to, found in many of your favourite drugstore products. As one of the beauty industry’s fastest growing must-have ingredients, we absolutely had to talk about it.

Makeup Remover

Forget the micellar water, coconut oil can remove the toughest of makeup, and yes that does include waterproof mascara! Which makes it the perfect cleanser. To use, massage into the face like you would with your regular cleanser and gently wipe away using a damp cotton pad. If you’re also wanting to save yourself a little extra time be sure to try this genius hack.

Facial Moisturiser

Packed full of Vitamin E, antioxidants, lauric, capric and caprylic acids, which together help moisturise, repair and protect skin cells from damage over time. However, before you slather your skin in this little wonder, coconut oil may not be great for those with acne-prone skin, due to its high comedogenic, which contributes towards clogged pores. For added benefits try this recipe from Hello Glow, packed full of antioxidants and tannins to leave skin looking fresh and revitalised.

Body Butter

Whats better than the tropical smell of coconuts? Its rich saturated fat content makes it great for reducing moisture loss and increasing hydration. Perfect for those with dry skin! However, if the smell of coconuts isn’t your thing you can always mix with shea butter and add a few drops of your favourite essential oil, we love this one by The Merrythought.

Body Scrub

The answer to glowing skin! As well as removing dead skin cells and impurities to rejuvenate the skin, scrubs are brilliant for improving circulation of blood and lymph to the surface, which could reduce cellulite and improve skin tone. Try this super energising recipe by Lulus.

Shaving Cream

You don’t need to use a cocktail of potentially harmful chemicals to achieve a super silky shave. By swapping to coconut oil you’ll be able to get a closer shave and avoid those nasty razor burns! Use it straight from the jar, or if you want something a little more luxurious try this DIY whipped rose and geranium shaving cream. You’ll never want to use anything else again!
