Summer is almost here, and you know what that means. It’s time to stock up on coconut oil!
When it comes to caring for your hair, skin, nails and nutritional needs, the versatile tropical oil has you covered—all summer long! Following are the most wonderful ways to add a little coconut oil to your life from June through August and beyond.
The summer elements often leave skin in desperate need of hydration. It should come as no surprise that coconut oil makes an excellent moisturizer. In addition to replenishing the skin’s natural oils, it helps build its immune system.
Because coconut oil has moisturizing and antimicrobial properties, it’s the perfect face wash. Bacteria (a.k.a. potential pimples) won’t stand a chance against this powerful topical treatment!
Before you head outdoors this summer, apply a small amount of coconut oil to your exposed skin. It has a natural SPF of 4, and it’s a terrific antioxidant! Remember, it’s always wise to seek some shade during peak hours—especially if you have children in tow.
Did you know that coconut oil also makes a great sunburn treatment? Rub it on dry, sunburned skin several times daily to help reduce redness, restore moisture and prevent peeling.
The Best Exfoliator
Add a little oil to three tbsp of sugar. Mix both the ingredients and use it as a body scrub to remove dead skin and to give in that radiant look.
Removes The Makeup
More than over the counter makeup remover, coconut oil has no side effects and is a better option to remove your makeup.
