1. Makeup remover

Why waste money on expensive makeup remover when coconut oil will do the job even better? You know that you should remove all the last traces of your makeup every night, and coconut oil will do a wonderful job of that for you. It will moisturise your skin too.

Just dab a cotton wool ball into some coconut oil and use it to remove eye makeup and the last bits of makeup from your face, after you have used a cleanser.

2. Lip balm

Coconut oil is wonderfully hydrating and it works wonders on dry and chapped lips. It moisturises the skin, really deep down, and it will keep your lips be kissable and soft all winter long. It also helps plump up your lips and it helps stop fine lines forming in the skin around your mouth too. Try mixing it with a drop of peppermint oil to make your own flavoured, plumping lip balm.

3. Hair mask

Coconut is also great for hair and you can use it as your regular hair mask. Just warm some coconut oil until it has become a liquid, apply it your hair, and then leave it in for about five minutes before you rinse it out again with warm water. It will nourish and hydrate your hair and leave it wonderfully soft and shiny.

4. Use it under your eyes

The skin under your eyes is some of the thinnest skin that you have your body. That makes it extra sensitive and extra prone to developing fine lines when you get a bit older. Applying coconut oil to the skin under your eyes will help keep the skin supple and young looking. It’s also a good way to reduce puffiness and dark circles as well.

5. Face mask

For some people, using coconut oil on the face, and leaving it on for too long, can clog the pores of the skin but, if you use it as a face mask and wash it off again, you get all the hydrating benefits of coconut oil, without the pore-clogging problem. Try mixing some coconut oil with some natural honey. It will help keep your skin looking young and it will fight bacteria too.
