Three Best Uses for Coconut Oil

22 Jun

Coconut

Finally, coconut oil is getting the attention it deserves for promoting a healthy metabolism (and other health benefits) and for standing in as an amazing beauty multi-tasker.

Here are three of the best ways to use coconut oil.

Makeup Remover

Let’s face it. If you’re a makeup junkie (like me), you need a gentle, but effective way to take offΒ  your shadow, liner, and mascara. Rub coconut oil gently on your eyelids and lashes and you not only easily remove makeup, you also condition lashes. Seriously, if you’ve been abusing your lashes, you will see an improvement pretty quickly.

Cuticle Softener

If you’ve tried just about everything to whip your cuticles into shape, how about applying a bit of coconut oil? Rub in the oil once or twice a day and voila: softer cuticles which can easily be pushed back.

Amped Up Body Moisturizer

If you love your body moisturizer but want to take it to the next level, combine equal parts of coconut oil and your moisturizer for a super hydrator. Not only does coconut oil penetrate deeply into your skin, it leaves a glow without a greasy feel (H/T Lauren Conrad).

Coconut oil is incredibly versatile as a beauty product. Do you have any other coconut oil beauty tips? Let me know in the comments below!
