1. Treating acne
Using coconut oil as a face mask is great for treating acne. Apply a generous amount of coconut oil on your face and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Rinse and cleans your face with your regular face wash. This will help healing acne and leave your face smooth and glowy.
2. Makeup remover
Coconut oil will get rid of all makeup, especially eye makeup. I recently saw an awesome way to make your own makeup remover wipes, by melting coconut oil and let cotton balls soak in the oil.
3. Body oil
The creamy texture makes the coconut oil the perfect body oil, leaving your body feeling smooth and moisturised.
4. Flawless tan
Using coconut oil when tanning will not only moisturiser your body but will also prevent the skin from being burned. Using coconut oil will also result in a faster flawless tan.
5. Face moisturiser
Apply a small amount of coconut oil on your clean face as a moisturizer. Using coconut oil as a moisturiser will also help the healing process of acne.
Coconut oil will additionally act as a natural SPF sunscreen when used as a moisturiser.
After shampooing, apply a generous amount of coconut oil in your hair and rinse it after 10-20 min. This homemade deep conditioner will act amazing on your hair, it will add moisture and shine to your hair.
If you run out of lip balm, use coconut oil :)
Coconut oil is perfect for moisturising afro and coarser hair textures. It tames frizz and leaves the hair shiny and soft. I personally like to melt the coconut oil before applying it to my hair.
