Coconut oil has essentially become iconic beauty product for every Indian household. It would be hard to find an Indian woman, who does not use coconut oil on her hair. My mum always uses to tell me to apply coconut oil to keep hair long, lustrous, shiny and strengthened. Not only that coconut oil keep scalp healthy and protects us from dandruff. Well, these are probably the known benefits of coconut oil. In this piece of writing, I shall share some of the hidden beauty treatment with coconut oil. Coconut oil can make your beautiful in various ways.
Coconut oil has been classified as cure-all for a number of skin and hair problems. It can moisturize, scrub, deodorize, cleanse and what not. It has been a beauty secret of people from Hawaii and other topical regions for ages. Coconut oil typically contains.
A recent animal study found that when applied topically, virgin coconut oil can speed up wound healing, and a human study found it to be effective in increasing hydration and reducing water loss in seriously dry skin. Sounds like a recipe for a really good lotion.
Make your own moisturizing body wash by mixing together 20-30 drops of lavender essential oil, a cup of rose water, two cups of liquid castile soap and four tablespoons of coconut oil. Pour into a large bottle, shaking to ensure everything is well mixed. Use as a regular body wash, but make sure you shake it up before each use.
Removing Eye Makeup
Removing eye makeup is such a pain. You need to do the job neatly, as leftover of makeup can ruin your skin or can cause black patches over or under your eyes. Using cleansing milk is generally the idea that most of us follow. But, I sometimes use coconut oil, and trust me I obtain amazing results. Makeup comes up quickly without any pain with coconut oil.
There’s a reason many conditioners contain coconut oil It’s better able to penetrate hair (and prevent protein loss) than mineral and sunflower oil, according to research. “I use it in my hair and on my skin for deep conditioning,” says Tasneen Bhatia, MD, an integrative doctor and owner of the Atlanta Center for Holistic and Integrative Medicine. Apply a quarter-size dollop to your hair, comb it, and then pile it into a loose bun. You’ll want to place a soft towel over your pillow or sleep in a shower cap. In the morning, shampoo as usual with a gentle cleanser.
Apply on Dry Hands
I have learnt this trick from my mum. As her hands get dry, she adds coconut oil regularly. Her hands are as beautiful as a teenage girl. All thanks to the benefits of coconut oil.
Coconut oil is great at penetrating hair and that’s why it works so well to rid your dry hair of split ends and fly aways. You can use it damp or dry. If you want to use it dry, just put some in your hands and rub it into your scalp, then brush it down through your hair to the ends to coat all your hair. Then wrap your hair up in a bun and leave it in overnight. It will hydrate your hair while you sleep and make it shiny and strong. In the morning you will need to wash your hair with shampoo, probably twice, then dry and style like normal.
Clean and hydrate your face
Because coconut oil is naturally antibacterial, antifungal, moisturizing and, according to research, great for atopic dermatitis, many women swear by its use as a nighttime moisturizer for their face, too. Try the double-cleansing method Simply rub the oil in circular motions all over your face and neck, giving yourself a gentle massage as you go. When you’re done, wash off the residue with your favorite cleanser. (If you’re adult-acne prone, avoid this technique unless you know your skin tolerates coconut oil.)
