Yes, you guessed right, this is Coconut Oil.
The same coconut oil, which is generally there at our dressing table as a boring item, can serve so many purposes.
I just couldn’t believe it, but when I tried it, results were amazing.
So let’s check out what products you need not buy if you are using coconut oil.
How much important moisturising your skin is? Very Much.
Take my case : Highly sensitive, acne prone and dry skin; which doesn’t respond well to chemicals.
For me, coconut oil came as a boon. It gets absorbed real quickly and does not leave any greasy effect. Not only it moisturises skin, it also heals and detoxifies it.
Lip balm :
Because of its moisturizer effect, it works really good as a lip balm. You don’t need to spend money on those costly lip balms as their prolonged use leave the darkening effect on lips, which is not the case with coconut oil.
Makeup Primer :
Good Makeup starts with a good primer. Agree?
And Coconut oil works really good as a primer, Rub a small amount over your face and then apply foundation. Your foundation will look really smooth and lasts long.
As an excellent makeup remover, it cleanses skin deeply and also very useful for removing eye makeup. Not only it clean makeup properly but also it nourishes eyelashes.
Want a relaxing bath- add a small amount of coconut oil and let it do its magic.
It’s aromatic and moisturizing properties will make your skin soft and supple.
Yes, you heard it right: It can be used as a shaving cream as well. It will leave your skin smooth, soft and most importantly no irritation and no dryness.
Eye cream :
Whenever I thought of buying eye cream, I was like “this tiny bottle and this much cost”.
So I choose coconut oil over that; It’s anti-aging, antioxidant properties make it perfect for under eye application.
It is really good in removing fine lines and dark circle too.
Foot and hand cream:
I never understand the sense of buying an expensive foot and hand cream. When coconut oil is right there to serve their purpose.
First of all, it leaves cuticle soft and supple because of moisturizer effect and secondly its antimicrobial and antifungal properties make it very useful as foot and hand cream.
As an excellent massage oil, it absorbs quickly and does its work by relaxing, healing and rejuvenating the body.
Hair oil and serum:
In Indian households, we swear by the effectiveness of coconut oil as a hair oil.We have been using it for decades and its results are so good.
Hot oil massage over the scalp 1-2 hours prior to hair wash can do the magic.
It conditions hairs, protects it and nourishes it. Along with camphor, it is a really good anti-dandruff agent as well.
