While there are ultimately no cure-alls, coconut comes pretty close to being one for a variety of beauty issues and ailments. You can use it countless ways to help improve your appearance. Here are a few of our favorite ways to use coconut oil.
1. Facial Moisturizer:
Apply a die-size amount of extra virgin coconut oil until it absorbs completely. Using a cotton round may make the process less messy.
2. Makeup Remover:
Apply it directly to the face as an oil cleanser or you can let it sit on your skin with a cotton pad. Your makeup will melt away in seconds. Coconut oil is effective as it removes makeup without clogging pores.
3. Body Lotion:
Hydrate your skin with coconut oil. Use a spoonful of the oil for the entire body. Wait several minutes before getting dressed to avoid staining your clothes.
4. Shaving Cream:
Combine the oil with shampoo and baby lotion to get a close shave and smooth legs.
5. Body Scrub:
Mix half a cup of the oil with just a handful of coffee grounds or brown sugar to make an effective body scrub.
6. Deep Conditioner:
Wear the coconut oil in the hair overnight for a shiny, strong finish. Hot coconut oil can also be used as a pre-shampoo treatment which soothes dry hair.
7. Makeup Brush Cleaner:
This DIY cleanser combines one part coconut oil and two parts antibacterial soap.
8. Cuticle Oil:
Apply the oil at the base of the nails, which will hydrate the cuticles and make the manicure to last longer.
9. Stretch-mark Cream:
While the oil won’t fade marks, it can prevent dark spots from forming on the surface of the skin.
10. Lip Balm:
Pack some in a miniature jar and smooth over the lips for relief from chapped lips this winter.
11. Frizz remedy:
Rub a dime-size amount of the oil into the hands and smooth hair.
12. Under-eye Cream:
Use a dab of the oil to hydrate the most delicate skin on the face.

Apply the coconut oil to the roots and massage in. This will help hydrate the dry scalp and stimulate hair growth all at the same time.
