We all use coconut oil for cooking, baking, all those new healthy ingredient substitutes, but did you know its benefits go far beyond just consuming it. Coconut oil is great for you both inside and out and can help boost your beauty routine!
Allow us to highlight a few skin benefits, hacks and uses of coconut oil.
1. FIGHTING DRY SKIN
Okay, an obvious one, we know. But it is the most important benefit as during the winter it is crucial to not let your skin dry out. Skin that lacks moisture ages extremely quick.
Coconut oil offers amazing anti-ageing properties as it contains antioxidants Vitamin A & E and your epidermis absorbs all the amazing natural oil. You can use it as a cleanser or alternatively in a recent Cosmo article on coconut oil, they suggest you leave it on your face for 5-10 minutes for it to completely soak in.
Remember to apply it over your moisturiser as it acts as a seal to lock moisture in. Coconut oil is also great to moisturise hands dried out from washing dishes, keep some next to the sink and moisturise, also great for dry cuticles! Give it a go, you will thank us later.
