Boost Your Summer Looks With Coconut Oil

Boost Your Summer LookWith Coconut Oil

Oil derived from freshly pressed coconut pulp has an enticingly sweet fragrance. Coconut oil is packed with phenolic acid and fatty acids that have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, smoothening, and regenerative properties. It is also full of vitamin E, which is essential for healthy skin and hair. It is also a great antimicrobial, which makes it an effective treatment against rashes and itchy skin such as dermatitis. This is one to stock in your bathroom cabinet.

An excellent moisturiser, coconut oil nourishes, hydrates, and soothes your skin. Its antioxidants combat ageing skin by toning it and returning the glow. Plus, it will leave you with an unmistakable, delectable smell of the tropics. You can apply it to your face and around the eye contours by adding a couple of drops to your moisturiser.

Coconut oil is also a great cleanser. Simply dab it with cotton over the face, wait for a few minutes, then wash with warm water and mild soap. It also works wonders on dry areas like knees, elbows, legs, and heels. The result? Your skin is as lovely as a Polynesian princess’!

Rich in vitamin E, vitamin K, and iron, coconut oil nourishes the hair and makes it thicker and shinier. Applied before shampooing or as a leave-in conditioner, it will help repair your hair. It's perfect for dry and damaged hair as it absorbs into the follicles more easily than some other oils. Comb a small amount through to the ends of your hair and leave overnight before shampooing with a gentle product in the morning. If you have normal hair, just add a few drops to your shampoo, but try to avoid your roots.
