Guest Post: 5 Ways to use Coconut Oil



Today we have a guest post by the lovely, Kiara from Blissfully Brunette. Be sure to check out her blog! 

For those who don't know, coconut oil has many beauty benefits for your hair, skin and more. I want to share some of the many tips you can use this product for. Here are my top five favorite ways to incorporate this product into your beauty routine:

1. Deep conditioner: Massage a few tablespoons of coconut oil into your hair and leave it in for about 30 minutes before washing your hair as normal. I have used this treatment several times, and have noticed a change in the shine in my hair.

2. Body or face scrub: Mix equal parts of sea salt and coconut oil for a healthy, all natural scrub. For a face scrub, mix equal parts of coconut oil and baking soda. This scrub will reveal your bright, oil-free skin. Baking soda is a natural blackhead eraser. You’ll easily remove blemishes in addition to any impurities left in your pores.

3. Shaving cream or after-shave cream: Coconut oil will smooth hair follicles, which will help you achieve a smooth shave job and it won't dry out your skin. Or, apply after your shave to fight razor burn. I apply a tablespoon of the oil and massage in my legs before shaving. This makes it easier to get an effective shave. Plus, it’s cheaper than buying shaving cream.

4. Makeup remover: Gently massage coconut oil into your skin to remove your makeup. It's an inexpensive way to clear your skin and get a natural glow. If you don’t want to spend extra money on makeup remover or cleansing wipes, coconut oil is a great choice for you. Plus, it doubles as a moisturizer, so if you’re really on a budget, you can use a small amount and massage it into your skin.

5. Acne: Mix coconut oil with nutmeg, leave on your blemish for 10 to 15 minutes, and wash off. Acne stands no match for this dynamic duo. Nutmeg is a great way to draw out impurities and dirt from your pores, which cause acne problems.

If you haven’t purchased this inexpensive, effective beauty treatment, this post will definitely lead to you buying this product. At least you won’t have to worry about breaking the bank.
