if you've read some of my posts before you may have figured out I love natural little beauty remedies, I just feel so much better knowing what I'm putting on my skin is natural, organic and free from any harsh chemicals. One of my favourite ingredients for natural beauty tricks is coconut oil, I've been using for a while and it can be used for so many different things, as it is highly hydrating and full of different nutrients, so I decided to share a few beauty tricks with you guys!
1 - Lip Scrub
My lips tend to get dehydrated and chapped quite easily, so at least once a week I like to get a little bit with coconut oil mixed with a little sugar and put it on my lips and gently rub then for a few seconds, if I've got the time I also leave it on for a while to get some extra hydration. After I do this my lips feel super soft and and look much better.
2 - Deep Hair Conditioning
Probably my favourite way to use coconut oil, whenever my hair is feeling too dry or frizzy I like to soak my hair in coconut oil and leave it on for 30 to 40 minutes before washing it off, it makes my hair soft, shiny and my curls way more defined, I probably wouldn't do it for hair that gets oily easily though.
3 - Makeup Remover
Yes, I know it's hard to believe, but trust me, gently rubbing your eyes with a cotton pas dabbed in coconut oil can remove even the most resistant water proof mascara, and moisturizing and hydrating your eye area at the same time.
4 - Cuticle Oil
Whenever my cuticles start showing up I put a little bit of coconut oil on to minimize their appearance
Just remember, before using it for anything make sure you don't have any sort of allergy
