Coconut oil in your food can be a fatty choice but using the same coconut oil for beauty remedies, will not only make things easier but it will also leave you with smooth and glowing skin, just what every girl wants!
Shave with coconut oil
Use a cloth to remove most of the water from your legs and hands. Coat your legs or hands with coconut oil - 1 drop of oil for one leg is enough to do the job. Don’t forget to cleanse your razor as the oil can cause the blades to clog.
Coconut oil toothpaste
Do away with the chemical toothpaste and make your own natural toothpaste with this simple mix.
Mix a few drops of coconut oil with baking soda to make it into a paste. You can also add a few essential oils if you wish.
Treat your feet
This is a very simple overnight remedy you should use to cure cracked heels. Apply a few drops of coconut oil on the cracked area and put on your socks. The oil will work its magic, leaving your feet soft and saturated.
Expel gum from hair
If you ever have naughty kids or friends around who think it's a fun idea to stick gum in your hair, worry no more. While shaving your hair off may seem like the only solution, apply coconut oil around the area. This will make your hair smooth and the gum will slip out in no time.
Condition your hair
While fat in coconut oil may not look so good on your stomach, it does wonders to your hair. Coconut oil is known to be filled with protein which will make your hair stay gorgeous and nourished when applied. What it does is this: it protects your hair from direct contact with water which will make your hair stay as good as new.
