Yes i'm still in love with coconut oil lol. I purchased this massive bottle of Coconut Merchant's Coconut Oil not too long ago and it's safe to say i'll be sticking with this brand in future. Anyway let's talk about my favourite beauty uses for coconut oil...
Massage a teaspoon of warm coconut oil into your skin and then rinse with warm water. The oil will pick up every scrap of make-up, you'll be wondering why you bothered to use anything else lol.
My favourite hair mask to make is coconut oil & avocado. This is great for nourishing dry hair - ingredients: 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1/4 cup of coconut milk and 1/2 avocado.
*Mash the avocado until smooth.
* Now add coconut oil and coconut milk to the avocado and mix well.
*Apply mixture to your hair from root to tip and leave for 30 minutes
* Wash hair with warm water and be sure to check for any residue
If you have sensitive skin, you may want to use coconut oil to replace your shaving cream as it's much more gentler on the skin and it gives a nice, smooth shave leaving you with silky smooth legs!
Under- Eye Cream
Running low on eye cream? fear not, the cheapest eye cream replacement is sitting in your kitchen cupboard. Rub a little under your peepers and you should notice an improvement after a few days. The best thing about coconut oil is that it's light weight and easily absorbed unlike some of the other oils, so there's no left over residue.
lather a tbsp of coconut oil on your feet follow by a thick cream like yes to carrots body butter (this is the absolute bomb) and then put on some really thick socks and by morning your feet will be baby soft.
The coconut oil pictured above is from Holland and Barrett (1 litre)
