Coconut oil- Life saver…

  1. An alternate to shaving cream. Get a smooth shave and prevent razor burn by mixing coconut oil, Shea butter, and jojoba oil along. Try this formula.
  2. Facial scrub: Slough off dead skin cells and get rid of blackheads with a simple mixture of equal components coconut oil and brown sugar.
  3. Makeup remover. Using your hands or a face cloth, rub a bit coconut oil onto your skin. Let sit for a moment and wash with warm water. It will even take away that last little bit of waterproof make-up — simply watch out to not get directly into your eyes, or it might sting.
  4. Cuticle oil. Winter wreaks disturbance on your skin, particularly your hands. Skip the lotion and simply rub a bit coconut onto your hands and cuticles to lock in moisture.
  5. Lip gloss. Favourite tube of lipstick almost done? Scoop out the last little bit of colour with a Q-tip and mix with a couple of teaspoon of coconut oil in a new container, and you must have merely enough for an extra swipe or 2 of lipstick.
  6. Makeup brush shampoo. Yup, this extremely works! Here’s how: coconut oil is full of anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial properties due to the amount of medium-chain fatty acids that are present, Dr. Ariel Ostad, M.D., a brand new York-based dermatological operating surgeon, says. “In fact, those fatty acids make up 80 % of coconut oil, so they will undoubtedly help keep your makeup brushes clean,” he says. Mix 2 components anti-bacterial soap with one part coconut oil and run through brush bristles. Rinse under lukewarm water. Let dry fully before using your brushes once more.
  7. Deodorant. The lauric acid in coconut oil will help kill bacteria that causes your sweat to smell. But be warned: this does not really stop you from sweating, it simply masks the B.O.
  8. To fake long lashes. While Dr. Ostad says nothing but FDA-approved medications (such as Latisse) will truly lengthen your eyelashes, using a bit of coconut oil on them will make them seem longer and fuller. Merely dab a little bit on with a Q-tip or cotton ball. Less is a lot of though — an excessive amount of will cause minor eye irritation.
  9. To prep before and after waxing. “Coconut oil could be a natural moisturizer and might be very effective for those with delicate skin,” says Dr. Ostad. “My suggestion would be to stick to organic extra virgin coconut oil, and to always take a look at it out on atiny low patch of skin initial to make sure you are not allergic, particularly if you are going to be applying it on or close to your genital area.”
  10. To soothe skin problem flare-ups. Coconut oil is one in every of the few things which will truly restore broken or unhealthy skin, because of the tiny molecular structure of it, that permits for easy absorption, according to Dr. Ostad. Like waxing, Dr. Ostad recommends testing the oil on a small patch of skin 1st to make sure that you are not allergic to that.
  11. Lube. Coconut oil are often used as lubricate, as long as you do not use it with latex condoms, because the oil will break down the integrity of latex, Dr. Ostad says. “Coconut oil is all natural and does not contain any preservatives or another ingredients that may cause adverse reactions in individuals with allergies,” he says. “It’s also additional lubricating than a water-based lubricate thus it lasts longer, and its antifungal properties will facilitate keep yeast infections at bay.”
  12. To fight dandruff. “Dandruff is caused by a yeast-like fungus referred to as Malassezia, and coconut oil has natural antifungal properties that may work to eliminate it,” Dr. Ostad says.
  13. To moisturise dry hair. Bonus to treating dandruff: coconut oil seeps deep into the hair shaft, which implies it is also nice as an extended conditioning treatment. If you have got skinny or fine hair, work a dime-size quantity of coconut oil through slightly damp hair; if you have got thicker, coarser hair, feel free to use more. Wait an hour and then shampoo and condition as normal.
  14. To fight frizz. Oil and water do not combine, therefore once you have to tame flyaways fast, scoop half a teaspoon of coconut oil into your hands (in this case, you only need a very little amount; too much will create your hair look greasy), rub through your hands very quickly to heat it up, so go through your hair. Style as desired.
  15. Toothpaste. Combine one half coconut oil with one half baking soda for a natural toothpaste (you also can add a pair of drops of mint oil if you actually miss the minty-fresh taste) which will leave you with a pearly white smile.
  16. To treat fungous infections. While coconut oil on its own will not have the same impact that antibiotics do, you’ll use it in conjunction with them to prevent and treat fungous infections like ringworm, Dr. Ostad says.
