If you haven’t already heard about it, coconut oil has become the one beauty product no girl can afford to overlook. Because of its countless uses, including healthy cooking, you’re going to want to buy yourself a tub of the good stuff right this minute! Here are just a few of the benefits:
All-natural makeup remover
Coconut oil hardens when cooled, so scoop out a pea-sized piece and rub it between your palms to melt it, and then apply it to your face gently. This stuff is so powerful it melts away even the heaviest, most stubborn makeup. Wipe away the excess with a dry towel and voila!
Who needs chapstick when you’ve got an all-natural alternative that will not only leave your lips hydrated but also add a glossy touch to them. If you prefer the matte look but want the hydration, applying it sparingly will do the trick.

Swap your shaving cream with a scoop of coconut oil. It leaves your skin so soft with the added bonus of smelling heavenly.
Unlike olive oil, coconut oil has properties that make it perfect for cooking at high temperatures. It’s also low in calories and incredibly high in nutritional benefits and healthy fats. Add a little vanilla to it and use it to make pancakes, you’ll thank us later.

If you’ve soaked up more sun than you expected, use coconut oil to soothe the skin and minimize peeling.
Deodorize your tootsies
Not only will it make your tired-post-workout-feet hydrated and relaxed, it will also fight off harmful bacteria because of its antibacterial properties.
Apply some to a cotton swab and wipe onto your eyelashes for long and fluttery eyelashes.
You can use it both as a leave-in conditioner and as a hair mask and rinse after 20-30 minutes. Apply very sparingly if you’re using it as conditioner, unless you’re into the greasy look of course.
