Hello Everyone...

If you are new then welcome...

Coconut oil is a miracle and most talked about product. It is a chemical free natural superfood that helps you to lose weight and live longer. Many of you already know that it is good for our health. That's why it is used in the food items from the ancient time. But, some of you are less aware of its beauty benefits. Don't you?
Coconut oil is able to give you a healthy body, hair and skin. There are many different ways in which you can use coconut oil for your beauty regimen.  whether your goal is to get silky - smooth hair or legs, coconut oil comes handy. Here, I have compiled 8 different ways in which you can use coconut oil for a beautiful skin. So, let's dive into it...

Coconut Oil and Skin Care


1. Coconut Oil as a Face Mask 

Coconut oil can be used as a face mask. It helps to remove acne scars, suntan and pigmentation. Coconut oil has antimicrobial properties that treat the pimples and also protect the skin from harmful bacterias. You just need a half teaspoon of coconut oil to rejuvenate your skin. Apply this oil on your face and massage for only five minutes. Keep it on your face for more 5 minutes. Clean your face with a cotton ball or cotton pad and then follow with a gentle face wash. This face mask saves your time as well as money and gives you a spotless and radiant skin. Use this recipe once a week to get good results.

2. Coconut Oil as a Lip Balm

Coconut oil is a miracle for chapped lips. If you are suffering from chapped and dried lips then don't worry. You only have to do one thing and that is- go to your kitchen, take a little amount of coconut oil and apply it on your dried lips. Coconut oil gives the moisture to the lips and helps to keep it hydrated. Except for coconut oil, You also have to avoid licking your lips and try to drink lots of water during the whole day. It does not matter how often you apply coconut oil on your lips but if you don't drink enough water, your chapped lips are going to coming back again and again.

3. Coconut Oil as a Body Scrub

You don't need to spend money on buying chemical-based scrub from the market if you have coconut oil at your home. Yes, you read it right... Coconut oil can also be used as a body scrub. You will need only two ingredients, one is coconut oil and other is brown sugar. If you don't have brown sugar then use coffee. Take equal amount of both the ingredients and massage your skin with this mixture. Make sure that you keep the 1:1 ratio of these ingredients i.e. "1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar." This will remove dirt, dead skin cells from your body and give it moisturizer. 

4. Coconut Oil as a Shaving Cream

Apply a thin layer of coconut oil before shaving your legs and say goodbye to the rough after shaving effect. Coconut oil gives moisture to your legs and leaves them as smooth as baby skin. You can also use a mixture of coconut oil and shea butter for the same purpose. This mixture as a base gives a clean shave that leaves the legs smooth.

5. Coconut Oil as a Makeup remover

Scoop a small amount of coconut oil out of the jar, rub it between your fingers until it becomes liquid. Apply this on all over your face including eye area. Massage the oil in a circular motion to remove that makeup from the face. After a few seconds, you will feel makeup come off right away. Use a cotton pad to remove extra oil from the face. Wash your face with warm water. Coconut oil not only removes makeup but at the same time gives you a moisturized and smooth skin.

6. Coconut Oil as an Undereye Cream

Coconut oil helps you to get rid of ugly dark circles. Apply a small amount of coconut oil on your eye area. If the coconut oil is in dry form then melt it by rubbing between the fingers. Massage the under eye area with this oil for 2 minutes, clean extra oil with a cotton ball. Don't wash your eyes after completing this process. Make sure that you don't put extra pressure on under eye skin during massage. To avoid the pressure, use your ring finger to massage your eye area. This process not only removes the dark circles but also cures the fine lines and eye bags.

7. Coconut Oil as an Eyelash Growth Serum

Thanks to fatty acids and protein found in coconut oil which stimulate the hair growth and give longer lashes. All you need to make eyelash growth serum is coconut oil and vitamin E capsule. Take one vitamin E capsule and extract liquid from it. Now mix this liquid into 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. That's it, Your eyelash growth serum is ready. Apply this serum to the lash line every night with the help of Q-tip and dab away any excess oil with cotton. Make sure, you clean your lashes before applying the serum.

8. Coconut oil as a Body Moisturizer

Fatty acids contained in coconut oil makes it the best moisturizer for the body. It absorbs quickly and does not give a greasy feeling. Coconut oil has antifungal and antibacterial properties that protect your skin from the skin infection.

  18. Though it was an informative post, however coconut oil may be linked to some potential benefits for skin, including reducing inflammation, keeping skin moisturized and helping heal wounds. The medium-chain fatty acids found in coconut oil also possess antimicrobial properties that can help treat acne and protect the skin from harmful bacteria.
