If you haven’t heard the hype about coconut oil yet, prepare to be amazed. There are MANY different ways to use this affordable product and today I’m going to share with you a few of my favorite skin benefits that coconut oil can give you!
1. Removing Makeup.
Coconut oil works wonders removing eye makeup – even waterproof mascara! The oil breaks down the harsh, inky product in shadows, liners, and mascaras. Simply dab a cotton ball in your coconut oil and wipe it away like magic. Then, wash the rest of your face with a mild cleanser – I prefer the Sustaining Cleanser.
2. Shaving Legs.
Out of shaving cream? Try coconut oil! Not only will you get a super close shave, but it’ll also hydrate your legs and leave them feeling oh-so-soft. Also, if you have sensitive skin, coconut oil is fab at not irritating it.
3. Cracked Feet.
Between running here and there, working out, and everything else we put our feet through, some days our feet need some serious attention. Coconut oil works fabulous to soften dry and cracked feet – just lather them up before bed and they’ll look, feel, and even smell great in the morning.
4. Cleaning Makeup Brushes.
If you want a clear complexion with super smooth makeup, it’s a must to keep your makeup brushes clean by washing them regularly. For an at-home DIY, mix antibacterical dish soap with coconut oil for a cleanser that kills any bacteria on the brushes and then conditions the bristles. If you’re searching for good brushes, Jane Iredale has amazing ones – my favorites are the Eye Shader, Crease Brush, and The Handi Brush.
