7 Coconut Oil Beauty Remedies

Posted Jul 10 2012 11:50am


Coconut Oil is one of my favorite products. Healthy and delicious, it has been used for many centuries and in many cultures for cooking. But coconut oil is much more diverse than that!

Here are 7 ways to use coconut oil in your beauty routine:

  1. Nourish cuticles by applying the oil directly to your hands. Have a hangnail? Soak the afflicted area in oil before snipping to reduce trauma of further tearing skin.
  2. Hydrate dry lips by making your own lip balm! Melt 1-part coconut oil, 2-parts beeswax and 5 drops of coconut essense. Pour mixture into a small container to harden.
  3. Soothe cracked heels by wearing coconut oil on your feet with socks to bed. To make a foot scrub, combine coconut oil with granulated sugar.
  4. Condition your scalp or hair. Warm coconut oil slightly and apply liberally to your scalp or hair. Cover your head with a dark colored Lucy Sleep Cap and let sit for 20 minutes. Rinse.
  5. Strengthen eyelashes by applying the coconut oil with a mascara wand. This may also stimulate eyelash growth!
  6. Cleans your mascara wand without damaging bristles or using toxic chemicals.
  7. Alleviates alligator elbows and knees. Mix lemon juice and coconut oil and apply to the afflicted area. For extra moisturization, cover with saran wrap. This mix will also lighten darkness.
