15 Coconut Oil Hacks
Gentle Makeup Remover
Grab that bottle of coconut oil and use this to help break down your mascara, eye shadow, and foundation on the skin. Then grab a cotton pad and add a dab of coconut oil, then wipe away.
This method works great on breaking down the makeup without being harsh on the skin. Once you remove your makeup, follow up by cleaning your face with a facial cleanser, to remove any excess oil leftover on the skin.
Winter or summer, coconut oil is an excellent moisturizer for your dry skin. Just apply some coconut oil to the skin after you get out of your shower!
Rub on legs, thighs, arms, belly, and anywhere else to get rid of dry skin. A little goes a long way!
Do this after you shower and allow it to soak into the skin through the night. Moisturizing is just one step in how to get your legs ready for the beach.
Makeup Brush Cleaner
Cleaning your brushes is something you need to always be on top of. I have found that using one part coconut oil to two parts antibacterial soap is a great way to break down the foundation and makeup that builds up on your brushes while being gentle enough not to harm your brushes!
Tame Frizzy Hair
A little bit of oil goes a long way, so remember that going into this coconut oil hack, so your hair doesn't appear greasy! But add a tiny dollop of oil to your hands and rub together.
Then work it over your frizzy hair, to get a smooth and silky finish. Brush and style as you usually would.
Lip Balm & Sugar Scrub
I have found that using coconut oil for dry, chapped lips works excellent. It moisturizes and creates a barrier to protect your skin.
You can also mix a little sugar with coconut oil to use to exfoliate your lips, then rinse and pat dry! Show off your smooth lips with this nude lip tutorial.
If you run out of shaving cream, no fear, reach for the coconut oil. Apply a layer of oil on your legs and shave away. This will help to prevent cuts or knicks and also moisturize your skin as well.
A tiny dollop under the eyes will help with fine lines and wrinkles. Plus it is light enough you can do this before you apply your makeup in the morning if you want. Or use at night!
Mix coconut oil with coarse salt or even sugar to create a homemade exfoliant. You can also add in some essential oils if you want, and use that in the shower or bath to help freshen up your skin.
This is great to do before you apply sunless tanner, so it goes on nice and smooth. Or exfoliate the skin a few times a week for silky smooth skin!
