Have you ever wondered why everyone is talking about coconut oil lately? It’s not that coconut oil is something completely new but it seems people rediscovered it and finally became aware of its benefits.
We are here to solve your mysteries and answer your questions! Here are some coconut oil hacks that you will definitely want to try ASAP:
- Removing stubborn waterproof makeup
Coconut oil is a natural way to remove waterproof makeup from your eyes and lips. You don’t have to buy expensive oil-based removers when you can put a little bit of coconut oil on a cotton pad and gently rub your makeup away.
- Healing chapped lips
Our lips are likely to become dry and chapped during the winter exactly because they are exposed to cold weather. We tend to lick our lips frequently to make them less dry, but we are making things even worse. Coconut oil can solve our problems in no time. Instead of using lip balms, you should definitely try using coconut oil. Apply it a couple of times a day and you’ll see the difference. It is also good for hydrating your lips before applying a lipstick.
- All natural body lotion
The good thing about coconut oil is that it has hydrating and anti-aging properties which are perfect for our skin. After taking a shower, while your pores are still open and your body warm, take a little bit of coconut oil and gently massage it into your skin. Your body will love it so much that it will absorb it in no time! The good thing is that coconut oil will leave no stains on your clothes.
- No more cracked cuticles
Cracked cuticles can be really stubborn and there are very few products which can help you with it. Coconut oil is one of them. Rub a small amount of it over and around your nails, be patient and persistent and dry cuticles will no longer be an issue. What is also good is that coconut oil will regenerate your nails as well. Two birds, one stone!
- Better than shaving foam
Believe it or not, you can use coconut oil instead of shaving foam. It might seem impossible to you, but you will change your mind once you give it a try. Take a small of amount of coconut oil and rub it into the skin on your legs. You will notice how the razor runs smoothly as if it caresses your skin. When you massage oil into your skin it will be much easier to feel the areas you missed. To make things even better, coconut oil won’t let your razor clog up and you won’t get a single cut.
