So we are back with our weekly episodes of Trendy Tuesday. We are going to be looking at something that is very beneficial for the skin, and could make us glow all year long.
Apart from growing natural hair, what else do you think you could use Coconut Oil for?
Just in case you did not know, coconut oil is becoming increasingly popular both in and outside of the kitchen. Besides being a highly nutritious and delicious cooking oil, coconut oil contains properties that feed and moisturize the skin.
Let’s look at things you could use Coconut Oil to do…
Do you know that Coconut Oil is an excellent makeup remover? I bet you didn’t.
Have you ever struggled to take your makeup off? No matter what type of makeup you wear, it is always a good idea to take it off before going to bed. Removing it allows your skin to breathe. However, the process of removing makeup can traumatize the soft skin on the face, especially the sensitive area around the eyes. Coconut oil makes this hard task easy on you and your skin.
To avoid too much rubbing and skin pulling while wiping off the makeup, apply coconut oil all over the face with a cotton ball. Leave it on for 5 minutes and wash off with warm water and mild soap. The main bulk of the makeup should be gone, but you should again apply oil to do a thorough cleaning.
Keeping the eyes tightly closed, place cotton pads dipped in coconut oil over them. Within a few minutes, the oil will dissolve waterproof mascara and eyeliner so that you can gently wipe them off. If coconut oil gets into the eyes, it may sting a bit, but it is perfectly safe. In fact, the oil is used in many herbal preparations for eye diseases.
Coconut Oil is an amazing makeup remover, but did you know that you could use it as a Face Primer?
While coconut oil is great for removing makeup, it’s also a good beauty tool to use when applying makeup. Rub a small amount onto your face as a primer before you apply your makeup, this is to ensure that your face would not be too oily for your makeup. Your foundation will go on smooth and stay on all day long.
Yass, Coconut Oil can be used as a face moisturizer.
Coconut oil melts on the skin as soon as you apply it, without leaving any kind of residues. It easily seeps into the skin pores, moisturizing deeply and thoroughly.
Just wash your face with soap and warm water, then apply little coconut oil on your face, and massage. Leave for 15 – 20 minutes, then wash off with warm water. Do this for days and watch the condition of your skin change.
Looking for the perfect lip gloss? Coconut Oil can sooth cracked lips!
Coconut oil can help relieve chapped and cracked lips. All you have to do is apply a single drop of oil on your lips with your finger tip. It is perfectly fine to lick off a little of this edible oil. It’s antifungal action may even bring relief to painful oral thrush infections.
Coconut oil makes an excellent lip balm on its own, but can be mixed with different herbal extracts or essential oils to suit your taste.
Other amazing works that Coconut Oil does are :
● Coconut Oil reduces facial wrinkles.
○ Coconut Oil offers protection from sunburn.
● Coconut oil tackles fungal infections.
