Coconut Oil

COCONUT OIL   IMG_4095

The ultimate magic beauty treatment above all else is COCONUT OIL. It has thousands of uses, from moisturizing skin and hair, to assisting in weight loss.  I use coconut oil for baking, as a skin moisturizer, makeup remover as well as a hair mask to hydrate my scalp and hair from root to tip. Coconut oil is a solid at room temperature so you will have to heat it up with your hands or in the microwave before use.

Skin Moisturizer: take as much as desired (a little goes a long way) and melt between palms and then apply to skin, rubbing in thoroughly. It soaks in fairly quickly and leaves your skin glowing.

Hair Mask: Take 1 tbsp of coconut oil and add it to dry or wet hair, and then put hair up into a tight bun and cover with a shower cap. Either leave in for 3 hours or leave in all night (I suggest putting a towel over your pillow…just in case). After, thoroughly wash out the coconut oil, usually I shampoo twice and leave the shampoo in for about 5 minutes each time, just to be sure that it is all out! You will probably find at this point that your hair is incredibly soft and silky with no need for conditioner, but it gets even better once you blow dry it and see how it shines and how soft it feels. It will make you feel great and sky rocket your confidence!

Best of luck!
