Nowadays it seems there almost nothing the power of organic coconut oil can’t fix! Coconut oil is one of the healthiest fats out there! Not only can this oil be used for cooking, but for a ton of other things as well. This oil can be used in its solid form or a liquefied state to provide amazing beauty, skin, hair, and health benefits. Here are 6 beauty benefits behind using organic coconut oil.

Moisturizer

One of the most amazing benefits of coconut oil is that it can be used as a skin moisturizer to help sooth dry cracked skin, babies and adults. It is also a great daily moisturizer for dry, colored, and coarse hair.

Makeup Remover

Coconut oil kicks in full force to remove even the most stubborn makeup. In order to use coconut oil as a makeup remover, just add a small dab to a cotton ball, hit all the hard areas and the oil will start to break down all the residue left over from your fabulous look of the day. Finish by washing with your normal face wash routine and VOILA!

Body Scrub

For all my DIY ladies, coconut oil can be melted and added to sea salt or brown sugar to create your own body scrub within minutes. By adding an essential oil, the scrub can be enhanced to your liking and causes for amazing exfoliation! Also, coconut oil can be melted and added with a few drops of whatever essential oil you prefer for a homemade massage oil.

Deep Conditioner

Coconut oil can be used as a deep conditioner for hair to penetrate and soothe your scalp. It seals your ends and adds a remarkable shine. It also helps with healthy hair growth!

Relieve Skin Irritations

Coconut oil can be used as itch relief from burns, bug bites, sunburn, blisters and scars. Also, it provides a safe barrier for scars from contact with bacteria and dirt.

Oil Pulling & Fresh Breath 

Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic practice that involves swishing oil around your mouth for oral cleansing, detoxifying and overall health purposes. Coconut oil is a natural oil that can be melted and used to extract bacteria and odor from your mouth, while also adding great shine and whitening to your pearly whites!
