Hello all. Not sure if I’ve mentioned this earlier but I live in Kuwait. After the very long summer, it’s now time for winter. Winters are very chilly here where the temperature drops down to even 0 C. I know thats nothing compared to some parts of the world but yeah, thats how it is. Winters mean dry skin and flaky scalps. I suffer from eczema. I have a hard time moisturizing my skin in winter. My best remedy is to dab on oil on my face, hands, legs, elbows. Just a little bit is enough. It cures almost everything. It has so many other uses apart from cooking especially beauty purposes. Below I am going to list all the uses of coconut oil that I have tried –
MOISTURIZE YOUR SKIN
Use coconut oil in place of your daily moisturizer and feel the difference. Just use a few drops and see how you feel moisturized all day long. It can be mixed even with your daily moisturizer.
Add a teaspoon of coconut oil to feel relaxed and moisturized.
DIY FACE AND BODY SCRUB
The most inexpensive and efficient scrub is coconut oil mixed with sugar. Mix equal parts of sugar and coconut oil and use it to exfoliate your face and body to remove all those dead skin cells. Your skin will be so moisturized and smooth.
FOR BEAUTIFUL NAILS
Put just 2-3 drops of oil on your nails and see how beautiful they look. It even makes nails stronger and cuticles softer.
FIGHT FRIZZY HAIR
This one is a bit tricky to use. Just use a drop of oil and spread it in your hands as if applying hand lotion and then use the left over on your hair focusing on the ends and middle. I would recommend not to apply above that as it’ll look greasy.
BEST MAKEUP REMOVER
To be honest, I’ve used quite a few makeup removers so far but coconut oil is my favorite. And this is one of the best uses for me. Just take few drops of oil and rub it in your skin focusing on eyes. Just swipe it off with a cotton and see all the junk come off in seconds.
RELIEF FOR ECZEMA
Coconut oil is not at all harsh for eczema. It’s mild and moisturizing properties helps to reduce the itching, redness and flaky skin. Dab a few drops on the affected area.
