Let’s check out how can we use this oil to enhance beauty as its safe and all natural. I always feel happy when I treat my skin, hair with all that is completely natural, free from chemicals. I always choose the one that is 100%pure, organic and cold pressed to get the maximum benefits.
Natural Body Moisturizer
Coconut oil has wonderful healing and moisturizing properties. It can heal the skin and add enough amount of moisturization to the skin. In summer, when we need something to sooth our skin and in winter to relieve our dry skin off itchiness and redness coconut oil can be of great use. Apply a generous amount of it to the knees, ankles,elbow, hands, legs. Coconut oil gets quickly absorbed into the skin and hydrates it.
Now we all know what long eyelashes creates the magic! Always opting for artificial eyelashes may not always be a solution right? The nutrients and fatty acids in coconut oil can help the eyelash grow stronger and longer. Just dip the q tip in coconut oil and apply a coat or two of it to the lashes just before bed.
