Anyone who knows me knows I have a little love affair going on with coconut oil. There will never not be a tub of it in both my kitchen, and bedroom/bathroom.
I’m just a little bit obsessed.
But for good reason, I swear I’m not a freak!
Today I’m going to be sharing with you the different ways I use it for my hair, face and body.
I would recommend you get 100% pure, extra virgin, cold-pressed coconut oil. Vita Coco or Lucy Bee are my favourite brands!
My favourite way to use it, especially because I have super sensitive skin,is as a makeup remover! (I get this gross dry skin under my eyes when I use makeup wipes… Yeah I’m disgusting)
All you need to do is take a little in your fingers, melt the oil in your hands, and then massage into your face.This’ll melt the makeup off your face so easy its unreal! (You can absolutely use it as eye makeup remover.)
Then just take a face or muslin cloth, put it in some warm water and wring out, use this to wipe away the makeup. (You’ll also look like a beautiful panda before you wipe it off.. Be sure to check your sexy face out in the mirror!)
Coconut oil works better than most makeup removers I’ve used and it’s all natural! Your skin will feel lovely and moisturised too 🙂
BTW. Please don’t be concerned if you have oily or acne prone skin, contrary to popular belief, oils won’t spoil your skin. (Read more here)
Coconut oil also makes a fantastic body moisturiser! I like to use this after I’ve dry brushed in the mornings or after a nice long bath in the evenings. It feels so lovely on the skin (as long as you aren’t that person who hates the feeling of lotion!.. Craziness.) I wouldn’t use this everyday as it is very rich, but it’s a lovely treat!
You can use coconut oil to shave with too! Save your money on buying shaving creams, and just use this! Smooth some over your legs, (or whenever you’re shaving) and see how good of a shave you get!
I use coconut oil as a hair serum when little miss frizz ball wakes up in the mornings. Take a really tiny amount (not too much.. Greasy is not such a good look), rub your palms together and distribute through your hair where needed.
You’ll smell all beachy and your hair will be smooth. What more could you want from life? 😉
