5 Benefits of Coconut Oil

Recently, I’ve been very into natural and homemade solutions for every day needs.  I’ve found that coconut oil works wonders for so many different things! I came across an awesome article (find it here!) about various uses you might not even have thought of. Here are my top five favorites:

1) Make-up remover: apply coconut oil to a cotton ball and use to remove eye make-up, lather it on your face to remove face makeup

2) Skin Moisturizer/Lotion: It leaves your skin feeling incredibly smooth!

3) Shaving Cream: Coconut Oil as a shaving cream is perfect for people with sensitive skin.  It helps hydrate your skin as you’re shaving!

4) Clean Your Makeup Brushes:  A great technique for keeping your make-up brushes free of bacteria!  Mix antibacterial soap with coconut oil into a cup, swish your brushes around, and let them sit for a few minutes.  Fantastic!

5) Fighting Dandruff: Massage coconut oil into the scalp!

Find out a few other genius uses for it here. Do you have any suggestions?
