9 Simple Ways To Use Coconut Oil

Ways to use coconut oil
We all have a bathroom cabinet stashed with trustworthy, emergency products like Sudocream and Vaseline as they essentially save the day for all kinds of situations. I think we should add another to our cabinets, say hello to Coconut Oil. This has quickly become one of my favourite multipurpose products and I can totally see why everyone recommends it. 

Today I wanted to share with you all some simple ways you can use Coconut Oil and believe me these aren't even all of them!

1. Makeup Remover - This works brilliantly if you wear a lot of eye makeup, the oil is so soft and gentle. It leaves your eyes feeling moisturized as well as cleaner!

2. Cuticle Softener - Coconut Oil can make your nails stronger and healthier which is perfect for people like me who don't go to extreme effort to take care of nails...

3. Shaving Cream - If you semi-melt this product it can be used as an alternative to shaving cream. This is amazing as I absolutely hate buying shaving cream, that stuff is pricey.

4. Eye Cream - A good eye cream is also pricey so why not use a dab of this under your eyes. This will make your eyes feel moisturized which is perfect for the colder months!

5. Scrub - Running low on exfoliator? Grab some sugar or salt and mix together to create your own body scrub and wallah! 

6. Teeth Whitening - Mix with baking soda and you will have such a white smile!

7. Body Lotion - Rub all over your body as a substitute to body lotions, I like to use this on the more drier areas: knee caps, elbows etc

8. Frizz Tamer - Rub a 5p size in your hands and smooth on the ends of your hair for frizz-free hair! (Also adds a healthy shine!)

9. Soothe Dry Hands - Winter is the worst time for getting dry hands, rub coconut oil into your hands and they will be nice a smooth!

And those are just the start of what you can do with coconut oil!

    1. It's definitely a product you need in your cabinet! It comes in so handy for everything, I've found it most useful for my elbows and knees if they are dry after the gym or under my eyes!

  8. Wow! I'm gonna save this post! I've always use it just like a deep mask for my hair! That's great! I want to try it as a make up remover! Do I have to apply it directly on the skin and then rinse it off? Thanks :)

  11. I´m really interested in testing it out as a teeth whitener. That´s the one use I haven´t heard of before. Then again I don´t really like the taste of coconuts, so maybe I should try this on someone else.
