10 Reasons to Try Coconut Oil | Sassy Shortcake Boutique |

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 Coffee

Be 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 Remover

Coconut 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. Moisturizer

Triglycerides present in coconut oil help with dry skin and sun care. It’s the perfect natural remedy for the warmer months ahead!

4. Hair Care

Need 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.

5. Improves Cholesterol Levels

A spoonful daily has been shown to improve cholesterol. Coconut oil is loaded with saturated fats, which studies show lower cholesterol levels.

6. Aids in Weight Loss

The body’s breakdown of the saturated fats in coconut oil helps to boost the metabolism for immediate energy. The way the body metabolizes these saturated fats also reduces hunger.

7. Eye Cream

Not only is coconut oil a great moisturizer but also helps to decrease the appearance of wrinkles. Dab a little under your eyes before bed just as you would your normal eye cream.

8. Improves Immunity

The fatty acids in coconut oil help to kill off harmful pathogens, and build immunity to prevent you from getting sick.

9. Lip Balm

Coconut oil is super hydrating, making it the perfect match for chapped lips. Put some in a small container to throw in your purse and apply whenever needed.

10. Frizz Control

With the warmer weather ahead, tame your mane with a small amount of coconut oil. Not only is it hydrating, it will help keep your luscious locks under control throughout the Spring and Summer.
