Virgin Coconut Oil

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.

Att använda kokosolja som en ansiktsmask är jättebra för att behandla akne. Applicera en generös mängd av kokosolja i ansiktet och låt det sitta i 10-15 minuter. Skölj och rengör ditt ansikte med din vanliga ansiktstvätt . Detta kommer att hjälpa till att läka akne och få ditt ansikte att bli lent och ge lyster.

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.

6. SPF sunscreen
Coconut oil  will additionally act as a natural SPF sunscreen when used as a moisturiser.
7. Deep conditioner
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.
8. Lip balm
If you run out of lip balm, use coconut oil 🙂
9. Hair care
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.
10. Body scrub
Mix salt or sugar with melted coconut oil. This easy natural homemade body scrub will exfoliate your skin and leave it soft.

  1. It’s amazing how much use coconut oil has, I never knew you could use it as a face moisturizer though. Great post 🙂

      1. What moisturizer do you use Ina daily basis because I’m trying to find a really good one

      1. I will have to give it a shot! I’ve heard there’s tonnes of nutritious ways to use it in cooking and baking, it seems like a wonder product.

  2. I use it expecially for my hair. During the summer, when I was at the seaside, I didn’t use any hair mousse, like I usually do, but I only used this oil and my hair was soft, protected and fantastic 🙂

  3. I swear by coconut oil! I use it for my hair, when I shave and lip balm. I should really try adding it with my moisturizer since I have a lot of dry spots on my face.

  4. I recently started using coconut oil on my face and it has been really working for me. I was scared at first because I have oily skin and I thought putting more oil on my face would make it so oily but my face feels great and it actually produces less oil!
