Coconut is highly nutritious and rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It is classified as a “functional food” because it provides many health benefits beyond just eating it!
I was personally never into the whole coconut craze, but I was finally convinced by my friend and started to drink it and then applied the oil to my hair and soon after noticed a huge difference!
Here are a few ways Coconut oil helps you and why you need it in your life stat:
1) SKIN MOISTURISER
I used a combination of baby oil (vitamin e oil) and coconut oil as a moisturizer. Works great and does not feel greasy. I normally apply it at night and it totally does make your skin feel super soft when you wake up in the morning.
2) HAIR MASK
Applying coconut oil and steaming your hair is a natural at home spa. Coconut oil can be added to your favourite mask, for frizz free, shiny beautiful hair.
I always carry my home made lip balm. It’s made of coconut oil, honey and almond oil. It’s a great moisturizer and an added bonus is that we get pink soft lips because of honey.
4) MAKEUP REMOVER
Coconut oil can be used an eye and face makeup remover.
5) TEETH WHITING
YES, thats right. It’s used for getting great teeth, it reduces bacteria in your mouth, and can be used as a natural mouth wash. I have tried it, could see whiter teeth in just 5 days.It’s known as oil pulling. Just take a table spoon of coconut oil in ur month and swril it for 10 to 20 min.
And say hello to white teeth.
Yes, sugar coconut oil scrub, as you might have already heard or even tried.
7) EYE LASH BOOSTER
Before you you go to sleep, just apply a few drops of coconut oil to your eye lashes. You will get thick and long eye lashes in just a week.
8) EYE BROW BOOSTER
Apply few drops to your eyebrows to make them thicker.
Just apply coconut oil to your hair at night, cover it with a shower cap, wash it off the next morning. This prevents hair loss too.
So there you are, just few reasons why should go Coconut crazy for a better body!
