Girls, I have to tell you all about my experience with Coconut Oil! Like most health and beauty products, I was very intrigued when I heard about the benefits of Coconut Oil but never seem to have got around to purchasing any or using it properly until a few months ago- I am now so happy I did! It is amazing ……. it can be used for almost every niggling skin irritation you may have, but is particularly good for dry skin, especially rough areas such as elbows, knees and soles of feet.
Before any tan application, I ensure I rub the coconut oil into these dry areas (let it set and absorb for a few moments ) and mix a pea size amount in with the tan before putting on my back of my hands and rougher areas such as elbows, soles of feet (we have all been a victim to tangoed hands),this will eradicate this problem!! Not only that, but you will smell amazing, like you have just made your way home from some tropical coconut island!!! ( Well, that is the way it makes me feel like, with a bit of extra imagination thrown in!) Make your own exfoliating scrub by adding a bit with sugar or salt to help slough off dead skin cells and your skin will be left with a gorgeous ” I just had a facial” glow. The beautiful Miranda Kerr has been using this oil since she was fourteen and lists many of its uses above a part of her daily regime 🙂
I have also used coconut oil mixed with a spoonful of olive oil (pharmacy brand) and used it as hair mask. I leave it on overnight with a hairnet and believe me in the morning your hair will be silky smooth! Wash hair as normal the next day with a good conditioner- I have also being using Mane ‘n Tail conditioner and together with the oil it has transformed my hair!! Being from a make-up-artistry background , I am always looking for the perfect dewy highlighter for my clients and this is ideal to give that dewy, glow when patted along the highest part of the cheekbone and arch of the eyebrow.
As an added bonus, coconut oil improves appearance of skin as it possesses skin healing properties and helps eliminate dead skin cells. Coconut oil nourishes the skin and helps prevent premature ageing and degenerative diseases due to its remarkable properties.
Not only is it is amazing for the skin, it also has beneficial internal health properties too-I ensure I have two spoonful’s every day and have definitely noticed a change in my skin-it is more supple and dare I say it- it has a glow! When digested, it can help regulate blood sugar, fight heart disease, speed up weight loss, and improve the immune system-it is the healthiest oil due to it’s Omega fats so ladies get your coconut oil today to experience all these amazing health and beauty benefits –the benefits are endless, so believe me it will be the best inexpensive beauty item you will buy this month 🙂
