Last summer we posted about coconut oil on our Instagram, but weren’t fully committed to trying it out in it’s fullest. Now that this new trend has gone viral, we’ve jumped in with two feet and found 10 reasons why you should try it too.
Not only reserved for recipes, coconut oil is being used everywhere from health improvements to beauty tips and tricks. Have your body glowing from the inside out with these awesome coconut oil uses.
1. Coconut CoffeeBe your own barista and blend a spoonful of coconut oil into your daily cup of Joe. Not only is it a flavorful additive, the health benefits improve your immune system, boost your metabolism, and reduce hunger (leading to weight loss).
2. Makeup RemoverCoconut oil has both antibacterial and moisturizing properties that make it ideal for removing makeup naturally. Apply some to a cotton ball and gently rub in a circular motion.
3. MoisturizerTriglycerides present in coconut oil help with dry skin and sun care. It’s the perfect natural remedy for the warmer months ahead!
4. Hair CareNeed a little extra moisture in your hair? Use coconut oil as a leave in conditioner. Apply a small amount onto semi-wet hair after a shower. It helps with split ends and keeps your hair looking fresh and healthy.
