And please read on to the bonus tip at the bottom of the blog..I thought I would be bold and provocative and all grown up and discuss something that is a bit taboo....even though everyone does it!
These beauty hacks will turn you into a believer of the multiple beauty benefits found naturally in coconuts if you are not already!
1. Eye creams can be expensive. If you are on a budget and you want to remedy those eye bags and fine lines, coconut oil is the answer. Don’t worry; coconut oil is very light on the skin. 2. When you’re done with under eye treatment at night, why not go ahead and apply coconut oil to your face as a night-time treatment. Since coconut oil is a great antioxidant, it will smooth wrinkles and fine lines while you sleep. I use coconut oil nightly on my face and love it.
3. Remove make-up easily with coconut oil. You can apply it directly to your face as a cleanser and make-up will melt away. Even water proof mascara won’t stand a chance.
4. Ever heard of “oil pulling”? It’s when you gargle with coconut oil first thing in the morning to pull out germs and bacteria. Yes, coconut oil has antibacterial and anti-fungal effect. There even have claims that regular oil pulling for 20 minutes every day can help regenerate decayed teeth. 5. I think this is one of the best beauty tip and tricks out there, use coconut oil as body oil. No need to purchase separate body oil. Slather on wet skin and pat dry to lock moisture in. I like to use organic virgin coconut oil after shower or bath. It really works! 6. If you are the DIY inclined, you can use coconut oil as body lotion base. It is actually the ingredient you would commonly find in organic body moisturizers.

It acts as a smoothing treatment to frizzy hair and will also give your hair the shine boost it needs.
