DIARY OF A MISSGUIDED HIPPIE| 5 WAYS TO ADD COCONUT OIL TO YOUR BEAUTY ROUTINE

Have you ever just opened up your beauty cabinet and felt overwhelmed by all the products you have? I believe this is a problem among men and women everywhere. Sadly, most of the products in your beauty cabinet are probably bad for your skin because of all the chemicals. Either that or the products aren’t right for your skin type. I was a product junkie in my past life (I still am low key) but over the years I’ve learned when it comes to your skin, less is more.

You can eliminate most of your beauty products and replace it with one product: COCONUT OIL. Coconut oil is truly a gift from nature! This nutrient packed oil has SO MANY uses but today, I’ll just give you five.

1. Stretch marks

Stretch marks isn’t just a surface skin problem the scarring actually happens in the dermis – your skins second layer. Coconut oil reaches deeper into the skin compared to even the best stretch mark creams, which is why it is more efficient.

2. Deodorant

Coconut Oil contains Lauric Acid, which kills odor-causing bacteria. Compared to popular brands using coconut oil is a way better alternative. Most of the ingredients used in deodorant can cause cancer.

 You can make your own deodorant by mixing together some:

-Corn starch

-Baking soda

– a couple of drops of essential oil

3. Facial cleanser

This may sound a little weird but replacing coconut oil with your usual cleanser can be really beneficial.  Unlike facial cleansers coconut oil has natural antibacterial properties and it wont change the PH of your skin. It is really easy just add the oil to your skin let it sit for 30 seconds & wipe off the excess oil with a warm washcloth.

 If you like to exfoliate once a week you can combine:

-Oatmeal

-Cinnamon

-Coconut oil

4. Makeup remover

Coconut Oil removes oil based makeup without over drying the skin. Just place the oil on your face and wipe away with a warm wash cloth.

5. Shaving cream

Coconut Oil gives you a closer shave and leaves your skin soft and supple after use!

There are so many other ways to add coconut oil to your everyday use so give these a try. If you like the results, do some research and find out what else you can use this amazing product for. Make sure you share the with me so I can try them out too!

Peace and Love,
