If you don't already know how bomb Coconut Oil is, this post will definitely enlighten you! Ya'll coconut oil is really one of best things I've incorporated in my beauty routine. I apply it pretty much on my entire body lol. I have sensitive skin so using natural oil has helped me combat many of the issues I faced using other products.
With the number of beauty products adding harmful ingredients to their products, it's imperative we be conscious of what we are putting on our body. Certain things that are in these products have the potential to seep into your body. And we don't want that! Going natural is the best way to go if you can help it.
For me coconut oil is convenient, cheap and it comes in a variety of sizes. My favorite place to get Organic Coconut Oil from is Sams Club. I was able to get a HUGE tub for less than $15. You really cant beat that! I expect that size to last me well into next year. When you get it it's in solid form, but once it melts it expands, so more product for your buck! Total WIN!
What makes Coconut Oil so special?!
SUPER Moisturizing for Dry Skin
Coconut Oil provides a healthy natural glow to skin. This oil has been used as a body oil for thousands of years because of its amazing moisturizing properties. Having moisturized skin is imperative, especially for the winter months ahead of us. Like I mentioned above I have sensitive skin and can face skin issues. If you are like me you get dry skin especially in the winter time. Soothe those dry patches with Coconut Oil. Since it is all natural and organic you don't have to worry about any perfumes or added ingredients that can cause irritation to your skin.
Great Hair Oil
Coconut Oil provides the essential proteins required for nourishing and healing damaged hair. As a natural hair chica I love to apply coconut oil in my hair. There are so many different oils out there to choose from and coconut oil has been the one I have been reaching for lately. With a kinkier hair texture my hair is prone to dryness. I use coconut oil in the LOC Method hair regimen. This oil is so versatile, because it can be used on all hair textures. You really can't beat that!
Is great in DIY body scrubs
I love body scrubs, especially when I see that my skin needs some extra attention. Check out this easy DIY Body Scrub I love to create here that uses Coconut Oil. It is safe for your entire body including your lips! So make a large batch and put it in little containers for easy use!
Natural Oral Health Option
Mouth Detox Oil Pulling
If you have never heard of oil pulling, just imagine its like gargling with oil.
Oil pulling, goes back 2,500 years, is based on Indian traditional medicine. The purpose of oil pulling is to pull all of the toxins that are in your mouth.You put a tablespoon of oil in your mouth and swish it around your mouth for 15-20 mins. While doing so ensure you are swishing between your teeth. Not only does it remove bacteria but it also gets those pesky bacteria that create nasty plague on your teeth.
If you are feeling extra fancy. To whiten your teeth add some activated charcoal powder and create a paste. Leave the mixture on for
***FYI Make sure you spit any mixture with coconut oil in the trash can. It will clog up your sinks once it solidifies.***
There are so many benefits to using natural oils in your beauty routine. Coconut oil is just ONE of the amazing oils out there that can be used. So if you are allergic to coconut I'm sure there is another alternative out there for you that would be perfect! For example almond or olive oil are great as well! I hope this post was helpful and gave you a new outlook on coconut oil.
