Hi Beautilicious:

It has been forever since I posted something.  Now I am back.

Since I love coconut oil I wanted to share with you some beauty tips I do with coconut oil but, let me start off by telling you a little bit about the importance of using coconut oil.

Coconut oil is the fatty oil obtained from the coconut and used in candles and confections (a dish or delicacy made with sweet ingredients) and cosmetics. Below you will see how good coconut oil is for you. I will mention a few.

1.Prevents Heart Disease and High Blood Pressure

Coconut oil is high in natural saturated fats. Saturated fats not only increase the healthy cholesterol (known as HDL) in your body, but also help to convert the LDL “bad” cholesterol into good cholesterol By Increasing the HDL’s in the body, it helps promote heart health, and lower the risk of heart disease.

2. Immune System Boost (antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral)

Coconut oil contains lauric acid, which is known to reduce candida, fight bacteria, and create a hostile environment for viruses. Many diseases today are causes by the overgrowth of bad bacteria, funguses, viruses and parasites in the body.

3. Improves Skin Issues (burns, eczema, dandruff, dermatitis, and psoriasis)

Coconut oil is wonderful as a face cleanser, moisturizer and sun screen, but also it can treat many skin disorders. The fatty acids (Caprylic and Lauric) in coconut oil reduce inflammation internally and externally and moisturize making them a great solution for all types of skin conditions.

It protects the skin and has many antioxidants that make it ideal for healing the skin. In addition the antimicrobial properties balance out the candida or fungal sources that can cause many skin conditions.

Now for the beauty part.

 

1. Shave your legs and under arms

 

Coconut oil is the best thing.  It is naturally antimicrobial, and smells divine. Plus, its skin-soothing properties will leave your legs looking hydrated (but never greasy).

2. Remove eye makeup.

Put a little on a cotton ball and  gently remove your eye makeup. The oil does a great job breaking down waxy, inky eye makeup, and leaves the delicate area hydrated, too. Once you’re done, wash your face as usual.

3. Massage oil.

Just because you don’t have massage oil doesn’t mean you can’t get a rub down. Just melt a few tsp of coconut oil and have someone rub you down. Remember coconut oil is skin friendly.

4.  As a deep-conditioner

Coconut oil penetrates in the hair (and prevent protein loss) than mineral and sunflower oil, according to research. 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.

5.  To add shine

Smooth a tiny amount of organic coconut oil onto your ends of your hair to add a little shine, or on flyaways if you have dark hair. Remember that a dab will do you: Any more and your hair might appear greasy.

 

In my next post I will continue to discuss more on coconut oil.

Remember, you are beautiful no matter what.
