Why is coconut oil better than the typical drugstore lotion? For one thing, it’s not water-based. Most commercial beauty products contain tons of water, and as soon as it evaporates, they stop moisturizing your skin. Not coconut oil—this beauty product is 100-percent moisturizing.
Plus, coconut oil is naturally free of silicone, parabens, fragrances and dyes, and other artificial chemicals that can be harsh on your skin and damaging to your health. The slightly sweet, tropical smell is an added bonus! I love using coconut oil as my all-over moisturizer and have seen positive impacts on my skin!
Here are the 9 miraculous ways you can use this oh-so-versatile oil in your beauty routine:
- In oil pulling
- As a moisturizer
- As a leave-in conditioner
- As lip balm
- To soothe itchy skin or bug bites
- As a natural treatment for lice
- To relieve the pain of a sore throat
- In a DIY body butter
- As a makeup remover
