Coconut oil is not only for cooking. Indeed, it’s also an excellent benefit to your health and beauty. For example, it moisturizes skin and easily removes your make-up. That’s just for starters as we will show you more great uses.

Body oil

Coconut oil’s creamy texture, when solid, makes it the perfect light moisturizer to slather all over. Apply a quarter sized amount right after you get out of the shower so it can sink into your warm skin. The light tropical scent that lingers after it’s applied. Add in a few drops of peppermint or lavender oil for a massage mix.

Hair Mask

Coconut oil is a creamy solid at room temperature, and turns to liquid when heated to 76°F. While in the shower, melt your coconut oil by running the jar under the warm water. Then, after shampooing, apply a generous amount of the oil to wet strands and twist hair into a bun. Let it sit for at least five minutes before rinsing to add moisture and shine back into limp locks.

Lip balm

Coconut oil is a superb skin hydrator. Consequently, chapped lips don’t stand a chance against either cold dry weather or the scorching heat. It is an excellent lip balm.

Cuticle softener

Do you suffer from chronic cracked cuticles? Tried many drug store remedies with no success?  No more, you don’t. Swab a small amount of coconut oil onto each of your cuticles and let it sink in for five minutes. The oil will strengthen your nails and hydrate the delicate cuticle skin, making your hands look more youthful and beautiful.

Under-eye cream

The skin under your eyes is thin and delicate, making it prone to fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles. No need to any more to drop the big bucks on expensive but ineffective eye creams.Just rub a pinch in of this oil between fingers to warm it up, and then gently pat it underneath your eyes.

Frizzy, Unruly Hair Fighter

Do you have tough to manage hair? That goes for you guys as well. Thee solution is here, right in front of you. Just dab a very small amount of oil and apply it to the bottom couple inches of your hair for all day frizz protection. Ditto if you have thick, coarse hair, just apply it for added control. It also leaves your hair extra shiny and soft!

Makeup remover

Just a teaspoon (or less) takes off a day’s worth of makeup with ease. Apply a small amount of warmed, liquified coconut oil straight onto skin and the makeup melts away, then rinse with warm water.

Coconut Oil Body Scrub

Coconut oil is an excellent body scrub. Mix a half cup of sea salt or sugar with an equal amount of melted coconut oil, and then use your hands to rub it over any rough patches of skin. The scrub moisturizes while removing dead skin cells. Moreover, add a bit of salt or sugar for extra tough skin on your feet and elbows.

Shaving cream

You won’t believe it but this oil makes for a fantastic shaving cream. Just warm the jar under the water and smooth onto legs before shaving. Your razor will glide smoothly, allowing for a super-close shave, and your legs will be moisturized from the oil in the process. Tip: shave outside the shower. The oil is very slippery, so you’ll have an easier time holding onto your razor if your hands are dry.


Who knew from this, that coconut oil is so versatile and effective as a health and beauty aid? I bet very few people did. Well, now you know. Go ahead, apply the coconut oil magic and look younger, healthy, vibrant, and more beautiful (handsome).
