Are you a fan of coconut oil and products infused with coconut? If not then you should be! We know of the endless uses of coconut and its tree but did you know it is an epitome of beauty benefits? Coconut is an affordable and amazing skin care ingredient that can be used in so many beauty DIYs. You can also include already available coconut infused beauty products in your skin care routine to get maximum benefits.
Here’s how you can develop a skin care routine using the goodness of coconut.
Coffee, sugar and coconut oil scrub
A good exfoliating session can promote healthy blood and also remove dead skin cells from your skin. This coconut oil, coffee and sugar scrub can be used all over the body including your face to get a healthy glow. Simply mix a teaspoon of brown sugar and ground coffee with virgin coconut oil and gently exfoliate your face with it at least twice a week.
Dive into the pampering goodness of coconut milk every morning and get long-lasting soft, nourished and plump skin. The calming fragrance will uplift your spirit and prepare you for the day ahead. This gentle, mild formula is suitable for all skin types including sensitive.
Coconut based products are presumed to be greasy and unsuitable for oily skin type. What if we told you this St. Ives Naturally Indulgent Coconut Milk & Orchid Body Lotion absorbs deep into the skin without making it greasy and leaves a subtle orchid fragrance behind.
Avocado and coconut oil face mask
This DIY face mask is packed with anti-aging benefits. Coconut oil deeply hydrates skin making it plump and soft while avocado slows down the process of aging. Simply mash one ripe avocado and mix 4 tablespoons of coconut oil, apply the mixture and let stay for 15 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water.
Coconut oil cleanser
Cleansing your face with coconut oil may not seem like a great idea but it definitely is! Unrefined coconut oil can actually dissolve dirt, makeup and wipe away deep set grime with ease. Massage the oil in small, circular motions for a minute. Now keep a washcloth soaked in very warm water over your face for 30 seconds. Gently wipe off your face and get rid of all the dirt and makeup.
